A day center for the street children
DICE : Drop In Center Ermita
Today we opened our new project: a daily center for street children in Barangay Ermita. Thank you to our partner Fondation Luciole and to Agnès Boumard for their support!
Barangay Ermita is the downtown area of Cebu City, in the Philippines. Many young children of this Barangay, whether with or without parents/guardians, play in the streets in a highly unsanitary environment, with no development stimulation whatsoever. The goal of the DICE is to provide a safe, clean and stimulating place for children aged 1 to 10 years old who usually play in the streets and to reduce the number of young children exposed to the dangers of the streets.
DICE is a welcoming place for children usually playing in the streets. They could come whenever they want, having access to educational activitiesand games facilitated by professional educators.
