"My father was a carpenter and
addicted to metamphetamine. He sold shabu (crystal meth) on the side,” he continued.
The young boy recounted the events: His
father, after being on shabu for several days, came
home and fought with his mother.
“He punched and then stabbed her in the
stomach with a knife,” Rayjon said. “Realizing
what he did, he then turned the knife on himself.
Both died in front of my eyes that day.”
Rayjon and his siblings got some help to
understand what had happened. He continued
going to school but dropped out after getting into
a fight with a classmate. His older brother followed suit.
“When I left school, I joined a gang where
we sold things like mobile phones and scavenged
for plastic bottles and electric wire in garbage
piles,” Rayjon admitted. “We sold recyclable
materials to junk shops to get money for food and
sometimes for rugby (sniffing glue). I still have
flashbacks and get easily upset when I think about
my parents.”
Meanwhile, in another part of the Metro are
a pair of siblings getting through an equally tough
childhood as Rayjon’s.
They are Rosenda and Jobert, they are
among the several children born to poor parents
living under the NAIA overpass in between two
very busy roads.
Rosenda is 17, has one child and is expecting
a second one. She takes care of her 8-year-old
brother Jobert. Their mother left them to be with
another man, while their father is nowhere to be

How Poverty Affects
Street Children

have 6 siblings and no parents," 12-year-old
Rayjon*said in Filipino.

Fall 2015

Their mother is mentally unstable and
sometimes visits them. It is uncertain how they
eat aside from the food provided by a non-governmental organization twice a week.
Whenever she can afford it, Rosenda buys a
pail of water for P5 to bathe Jobert and herself.
They also use that water to wash clothes and
cook meals. Every night, they sleep on a wornout mattress they found in the dump.

Under the Rugs

Rayjon and Rosenda’s stories sound like perfect scripts for a Hollywood horror film, but all
these are a Philippine reality.
Their lives are only among the several other
unheard stories of Filipino children. They are
often pushed under the rug because it sounds all
too familiar in this country.
Rayjon and Rosenda are among the thousands of street children who roam Manila’s landscape day and night, often growing up in violent
and harsh conditions, receiving little support for
a better future.
Instead of enjoying their youth, Rayjon and
Rosenda act as their siblings’ providers and pro-

tectors. Along the way, the two are forgetting
their dreams of becoming a nurse or a teacher
because they don’t have the psychological time to
Surviving abject poverty often supersedes
the need for psychological healing.
Unsurprisingly, the combination of untreated psychological trauma and poverty creates a
perpetual cycle of “psychological poverty". This
complex phenomenon is in need of much attention from communities and policymakers since
the future of the Philippines will depend on its
ability to foster the healthy development of the
poor and the coming generations.

Child Protection

Poverty means not having enough money to
meet basic needs, including food, clothing, and
shelter. Children living in poverty do not access
such needs essential for early learning, self-regulation, and brain organization.
Although the Philippines has child labor
laws meant to protect children’s rights, poor law
enforcement has allowed some parents to rely on

their children for money. Some children are
forced to beg in the streets, some sell sampaguita,
and others prostitute themselves just to help their
families make ends meet.
In time, they get caught in the “tangle of
pathology – a combination of absent parents, low
educational attainment, unemployment, and
delinquency,” as noted by Princeton University
professor Johannes Haushofer. But at what price?
All these could create unsafe conditions for
any child to grow up in and leave profound
immediate and long-term effects on their overall
development. In the immediate sense, as early as
age two, children experience developmental
delays, increasing the likelihood of lower school
achievement grade retention, and chances of
dropping out.
They may also encounter more subsequent
emotional and behavioral problems such as poor
peer relations, conduct disorder, depression, and
delinquency. Further, children growing up with a
parent addicted to drugs or alcohol could develop
the same patterns of compulsive behaviors and
have several co-occurring issues including neglect,
emotional, physical or sexual abuse.
Incest is believed to be twice as likely among
children of alcoholics.
These children tend to need psychological
intervention and end up in the penal systems.
Why? Because their childhood stress was more
than their brain and body could process at the
Their parents who should have been helping
them fix problems were often the ones causing it.
Some parents are also overwhelmed with their
own problems, they forget to care for their children. The impact of such family arrangements
could be observed from one generation to the
When stress is not properly dealt with, it
could accumulate in the form of negative emotions, leading to sadness and anger. Sadness, a
symptom of depression, can decrease anyone’s
ability to make smart long-term decisions, including seeking good health and education.
Without these, one is exposed to more trauma and personal violence. It is a vicious circle
where poverty could be linked to greater rates of
mental illness, and in some cases, certain kinds of
mental illness could be linked to a greater likelihood of living in poverty.

Breaking the Cycle

To break this vicious cycle of poverty, the


first step is to admit that poverty is also psychological. The second step is to admit that it
requires psychological solutions. Third, the solution needs to start with poor families, they are the
beginning and the end of the problem. And finally, the government’s funding priorities must be
In the Philippines, funding is currently
being directed at individual families who fit certain criteria under specific poverty-reduction programs such as the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino
Program, also known as the Conditional Cash
Transfer (CCT) Program.
Despite its promising figures and its
emblematic “no one gets left behind” policy, the
CCT money simply isn't enough and isn't reaching deeply enough, as seen in the cases of Rosenda and Jobert who continue to live on the streets
because they can’t afford housing.
Funding needs to be reversed: it needs to go
to treatment and recovery programs in poorly
invested barangays where a majority of street children and street families reside. Simply relying on
individual government conditional handouts and
NGO programs create another cycle of dependency. The money shouldn’t be stopped but other
services need to be added on top of that.
Such programs should consider problems
like lack of parental involvement, mental health
issues, substance abuse, the at-risk-youth. Possible activities include expressive arts therapy,
counseling, and stronger social services.
In doing so, the youth will not only feel
financially supported, but they will also have the
self-confidence necessary to reach their fullest
potentials as the country’s ticket to a better
future. Then children like Rayjon and Rosenda
could rewrite their own stories and begin new
ones with a clean slate. 
