No One Will Be Left Behind

This petition had 31 supporters

The Philippines is indeed a beautiful country. It is blessed with beautiful sceneries, wonderful people, and abundant natural resources. But despite its beauty, just like any other countries, it is bombarded with many predicaments- be it economical, political or societal. Among the list, are poverty and the ballooning number of its population. As an aftermath of these two topmost dilemmas of the country, our country is confronted with a lot of societal issues. 

In connection with the above-stated predicaments, I am writing this petition to seek the attention and call for swift action from DSWD to take immediate action on the current situation of the streetchildren. We can observe nowadays that a lot of children are not afforded with education by their parents due to the aggravating problems on poverty. Children who were born from a poor family, especially in urban areas, are usually found on the streets. They are begging for alms. Some are engaging in illegal acts such as snatching, stealing and worst, using drugs. This is why juvenile delinquency is increasing as years passes by. 

As an agency concerned with the welfare of these streetchildren, I urge you to help them by extending support by giving free education and providing a comfortable shelter. By supporting this petition, the cases of juvenile delinquency can be mitigated, we can be able to build a better world and no one will be left behind.
