Personal and Social Engaging Activities for Children in Conflict

This petition had 482 supporters

Children in Conflict or also known as “Sukarap” have been wandering anywhere and everywhere in many cities. General Santos City is one of those cities who has a large number of sukaraps. A sukarap is another term for “ton-og” or “batang kalye” or as translated in English, the children in conflict. Usually they stray on the streets and in malls, and a majority of them come from public schools. It’s not about the way they dress or how they style themselves but mostly on the way they act in public especially when in groups or with friends.

There have been numerous cases wherein these children are reported to be causing trouble in public through riots and noise, causing inconvenience and fear of safety for the innocent bystanders who are at risk of getting involved with these fights.

This petition helps children in conflict engage in social and personal development activities to develop their social interaction with people around the community. It can directly address issues of sharing information, clarifying communication and working cooperatively without fear of judgment. Through this, they can pick up a better comprehension of their own conduct and the issues they are facing. This will help them learn and grow as an individual. The developmental learning environment for children in conflict or sukaraps will help them maximise and unleash their potentials. The purpose of this project is not only for the sukaraps but also for everyone to take and perform an action about the reality that these children are experiencing now.

As students, we must raise awareness for everyone to be able to understand that these children are troubled youths who are in need of guidance. Through raising awareness, we can get the attention of the citizens so that they can help provide guidance. The government must know that they need to step up their game, even though they are drawing up several initiatives, they need to pririotize the children in conflict because the future of every child is important for the betterment of the city, and to increase the feeling of security within families. 

We would like to suggest for seminars to be conducted. These seminars will help:

  • in thoroughly educating the sukaraps in order for them to be aware of their wrongdoings
  • contribute in the gradual development of personalities of these children
  • these children change their way of life, the way they see other people and the way they interact with people

As Generals, each and every one of us must help and be united in creating a change that will help these children renew their own lives.
