All children need to be safe and be able to play and develop. Bahay Tuluyan's Drop in Center is an open space for children to play, learn, seek refuge, access support services, develop their skills and engage in community activities.
Our Drop In Center, located in Malate, Manila, is open for children to come in on a daily basis to shower, rest, join in activities, speak with a social worker or just hangout. Through the Drop In Center Bahay Tuluyan offers a variety of recreational and non-formal educational programs aimed at developing children's self esteem and natural talents. Clare's Classroom is a place where out-of-school or at risk children can participate in education programs to help them transition back into formal education.
Most of the programs in the Drop Center are led by our volunteer Youth Facilitators using a 'child-to-child' approach.
