Education for Street children and Youth
Dynamic Teen Company (DTC)
was established in 1997 by Efren Penaflorida Jr. and his former classmates. DTC initiated the idea of the ‘Kariton Klasrum’ (pushcart classroom) a programme inviting (street) children and youth to a weekly learning session. In addition, DTC runs three programmes that are also all designed to encourage children and youth to enroll in formal education, to enhance their joy in learning and to secure they continue to go to school. All programmes support the children during their studies and finally to find a job or to set up their own business. DTC also provides school supplies, tutoring, meals and health checks to the children and youth in the age of about 5 t0 14 years old.
Period: July 2015 – July 2017
Goal: to support 800 (street) children and youth to enroll in formal education and/or to give support to ensure they continue to go to school.
