Face the Children (FCT) is one of Fronline's latest undertakings, reaching out to the thousands of needy children roaming or living on the streets of towns and cities throughout the Philippines. Due to the economic disaster that has long prevailed throughout the country, millions of families are living in a hopeless cycle of grinding poverty. As a result many children end up on the streets due to hunger, where they go out to work, beg, or steal. Most of these children will grow up without any education, and every year thousands of are subject to numerous dangers and abuses, including physical and sexual abuse, often leading to a life of sexual slavery in prostitution.
FTC is developing a system that brings children off the streets in order to povide safety, loving oversight, 24x7 physical and spiritual care, and an excellent opportunity in Christian education. The FTC program requires the children's cooperation and positive reponse to move forward. The goal is that those who respond well will receive scholarships to be full time boarding students at the Frontline Christian Academy.
