La necesidad: ¿Cuál es el problema que tratas de solucionar?
According to UNICEF 2012 report, Filipino children in urban areas lack decent housing, have limited access to clean water and prone to neglect, abuse and exploitation. Poverty forced children dropping out from school to help their parents earn a living to relieve their hunger. The second cause is lack of interest in going to school.
The challenge, therefore, is how to make the school interesting and encouraging rather than intimidating; make it inclusive, non-discriminatory and poor-sensitive rather than exclusive and elite-oriented; and how to make it accommodating rather than restricting. The education content, process and experience should be made more meaningful to the children’s life experiences by ensuring appropriate, culture-sensitive and values-based interventions.
La solución: ¿Cuál es tu solución? Sé específico.
A rights-based, child-friendly and socially -relevant educational orientation learning system is an innovative solution combating social indifference and discrimination. Working closely with schools, teachers and parents will facilitate the learning development of children from being self- centered, competitive-oriented and social-passiveness to a collective, service-oriented and socially-engaged education.
Building leadership confidence and skills at a young age equipped with clear vision of building a society where there is no hunger, child exploitation, discrimination, violence and war. The love of justice, peace, security, love and freedom is an empowering educational engagement of raising empathetic children and youths as agents of change.

Inspired by the principle that children and youth learned best will surely makes a difference when they are treated with respect and trust rather than being treated as inferior and incapable.
After- School Mentoring Classes - Developing practices among children and youth in collectively building alternatives inspired by their social realities. Creative dances, plays, songs, writing and art works centered on love for the environment, human rights, child friendly education, gender equality and peace will be established. Public exposures and presentations of their work will build both self and collective confidence geared to effect basic changes in institutional policies and social behaviours.
Parent’s Empowerment – Enabling parents to be child-sensitive inculcating the value of empathy and build strong connection with their children and teachers is a key intervention for a successful child. Workshops, peer counselling, role-playing and parent-children activities will be facilitated to improve parental practices.
Child-friendly and Rights-Based Teaching Advocacy – Partnership with schools in sponsoring forum and conferences on social issues affecting communities will provide engagement for students and teachers to empathize with the marginalized. Parents- teachers’ conferences for module development suited for the students of different levels will be shared together with the school administrator, teachers and parents.

My peers are parents, partnered schools and non-government organizations networks who are engaged for community service and advocacy. My competitors are the established after-school mentoring and tutorial classes and have good locations.
My greatest challenge for greater success is how to broaden my base of interested parents and schools to advocate this kind of learning system.

¿Cuál ha sido el impacto de la solución hasta la fecha?
Child- friendly and Right-based Teaching advocacy solution successfully partnered with major schools and universities, civil society groups, church and media sponsoring the conference of mining and ecology attended by 3,000 university students. The Governor was compelled to immediately suspend the operation of a large mining company operating in the province.
Additionally, the environment advocacy presentations of children violin class and the children theatre group of partner teachers and parents during the mining conference rendered their services for free. The presentation inspired the children, parents and teachers.
My Parent Empowerment advocacy working with our community school benefited hundreds of parents and school children such as the approval of additional lounge for primary grade children and parents during lunch breaks provided a parenting place and child mentoring inside the school premises.

For the next three year the project will have established its presence in communities and schools catering 50 -100 students benefiting from the after after-school mentoring program on creative arts and 100- 150 for academic tutorial services on a yearly basis. 10%-20% of which are scholars.The children show confidence and positive behavior of nurturing and caring for others and their community through participation in community service.
We will have a minimum of 300 parents or caregivers that will benefit from the parent empowerment program attending workshops, counselling and peer mentoring for free or minimal cost.
A well- developed 10 school partners where we help teachers teaching child-friendly and rights-based learning orientation and practices to their students.
¿Qué barreras pueden dificultar el éxito de tu proyecto? ¿Cómo planean superarlas?
The main problems that hinder the success of my project is how to sustain program activities and the possible irregularity of children enrolment in the after- class mentoring and tutorial program due to the increasing cost of living.
My strategy in overcoming these barriers is to look for grants and networks that will help in reducing the expenses and creating financial opportunities to sustain my advocacy. Upgrading and innovating more activities that are attractive for parents and school to invest in the project.

Historia de la fundación: Queremos saber acerca del momento en el que hiciste "¡Ajá!". Comparte la historia de dónde y cuándo el/los fundador(es) vio (vieron) el potencial de esta solución para cambiar el mundo.
I am social worker and a women rights activist in the Philippines. WHO reported that 22.6% are living below $1.00 a day and 51% or 94 million Filipino families said they are poor. Over the years of working with women, I always cried witnessing children going to school hungry and barefoot. My story, my family story of battling poverty inspired me to be a part of a social change movement that cares for women and children. My two children especially my eight year old daughter inspired me to pursue this child rights and right- based learning system because of my frustration with the traditional educational system that blinds children of the social realities and training them to be self –centered, apathetic and competitive.I am so passionate to start up an child friendly annd rights-based alternative learning center for children and youth because they are the hope of the next generation for a brighter future.

They will help broaden my networks of parents, caregivers, teachers and school who are very receptive of the parent empowerment and teachers’ training. These parents the ones who will sustain the program by staying with us and inviting more parents, teachers to join the program at a very minimal cost. My partners will also help me in social marketing.
