Onesimo: A future for street children and stranded youths
Home, hope and healing
Many of the youth are drug addicts and many children are abused and neglected when they come to Onesimo. In the communities they find a home, draw hope, experience healing and can complete school or training. This gives them a chance to escape the spiral of poverty and street life.
Accompaniment and care of more than 600 children and adolescents
Onesimo cares for and accompanies more than 600 children and young people from the streets and slums of Manila, a city of 20 million (Philippines). This includes 40 therapeutic living communities, open day care centers, student and training centers, residential centers for street children and a shelter for sexually abused girls.
New project: agricultural construction and camp
For the latest project, an agricultural school and a camp are under construction. Organic products are already being planted and marketed on ten hectares of unused bush land with the intention of self-sufficiency.
