Location: Angeles City, Pampanga, Philippines
Beneficiaries: 50 sponsored adolescents and youths
Background: One of the trends among the sponsored youth in the Pearl S. Buck Foundation Philippines is early engagement in physical relationships, which are resulting in teenage pregnancy. In this context, PSBP believes that proper sex education among its sponsored youth must be given time and importance. This is to help the teens and young adults understand, be aware of, and protect their sexuality and reproductive system. Easy access and exposure to sexual content on the Internet is also contributing to these members of Generation Z to the world of sex and even the sex trade, which is thriving in Angeles City.
