An estimated 1.5 million children between the ages of 11 and 14 live on the streets in the Philippines, begging and offering services like car washing, selling cigarettes, newspapers and candy--even their own bodies-- to survive. The Sonshine Center is reaching out to these children offering them educational, physical, emotional and spiritual development programs that are transforming their lives and that of their families. Short-term mission teams support the work of the Philippine’s team by conducting Children’s Ministry programs that share the Gospel message through drama, crafts, songs and Bible stories. Also, teams can assist with construction projects, discipleship programs and through community outreaches that minister at the local dump and flood relocation site.
