Police Officers Use Mobile Library To Teach Street Children Basic Education
POLICE OFFICERS – Manila Police District (MPD) police officers used a mobile library to teach street children basic education.
Studying is very important to every one of us because it helps people to be wiser in life decisions and succeed in careers.
A typical family would send their children to school even a kid is just 4 years old then support them until they finish a degree in college.
Meanwhile, some unfortunate families didn’t have a chance to provide a good education for their children because of poverty.
Children who are not in school has a probability to be influenced with bad doings such as stealing in the streets.
At a very young age, the minds of the kids can easily be corrupted by adults who they saw robbing bags or just all over the place doing nothing.
It is not a very good example for the children, so the Manila Police District (MPD) made a move to help these street children.
Based on a report from UNTV, Police officers in Manila assembled several street children to provide them with books to read from their mobile library and teach them some basic education.
The Police Officers usually catch these street children in Roxas Boulevard asking for money from strangers, loitering in parks or even stealing.
A 19-year-old girl named Lhera stated that she has been doing those things since she was young and has no idea it was against the law.
Lhera confessed that she was a thief and a user of an illegal substance. They beg from strangers or rob them if they won’t hand them money.
“Dati po nagnanakaw,” she said.
Lhera’s confession urged the Police Officers to initiate the mobile library project or the “Pulis na, Teacher pa” program.
According to the report, MPD’s project teaches the street children to learn basic lessons, morality, respect, and personal hygiene.
Their mobile library is filled with interesting books to read contributed by private donors. The vehicle is also equipped with audio-visual aids to make their presentation more interesting.
The Police Officers’ mobile library program does not only benefit the street children but also their parents and the people passing by Roxas Boulevard.
