To kickstart Blogapalooza's anniversary month, the BlogaTeam decided to have a fun birthday party with some of the street kids of Childhope Philippines last June 4, 2022. Childhope Philippines Foundation, Inc. or Childhope Philippines is a non-government organization or NGO for children in the Philippines. They work to promote the welfare, uphold, and protect children’s rights, particularly children in street situations.
The BlogaTeam spent the whole afternoon getting to know the kids, playing fun games, and eating spaghetti and chicken (a #BlogaTurns7 birthday party isn't complete without a handaan). The kids were also given some loot bags which consists of toys and school supplies that the they can use for learning. It was a very fun time full of laughter and the kids had a great time bonding with the BlogaTeam. Here's a short video of some of the highlights during the birthday party:
About Childhope Philippines Childhope Philippines traces its history back when Childhope International was founded in 1986. Individuals from children’s agencies saw the need to address the plight of children needing protection, especially those living in the streets. In 1989, a regional office for Asia was established in Manila after the First Regional Conference of Street Children in Asia. This forum facilitated networking and collaboration among agencies working for street children in Asia.
