Nearly every young boy who comes to the ROP Center has fallen behind in his education. We at the ROP know that education is the most valuable asset one can possess so we have an in-house catch-up school where each boy has a chance to continue their schooling. We also offer our older children the ooportunity to attend a secondary school or vocational school after they have completed primary school.
One of the biggest challenges in taking in children from the streets is changing their behavior. Often we find these children have had to beg, steal and fight to survive on the streets, and many will have used drugs and alcohol too. Through schooling and gentle guiding from our staff, we try to gradually change the boys' behavior.
