The mission of Childhope Asia Philippines (CHAP) since 1989 has been advocacy for the cause of street children, capacity building and technical assistance, networking, databanking, and program development in 13 Asian countries. Since 1992, Childhope has provided direct services to street children in Metro Manila through its Education on the Street Project. It also initiated and organized two city-wide inter-agency advocacies and training networks for the protection of children in Pasay i.e. Pasay City Network for the Protection of Children Inc. (PCNPC) and in Caloocan i.e. Network of Advocates for Children's Welfare and Development (ADNET), as well as a crisis intervention and recovery center, Tahanan Sta. Luisa (TSL) for sexually and physically abused street girls housed now in Quezon City. All three programs were assisted by CHAP to organize their respective Boards of Directors and to register as separate legal entities. CHAP has continued to assist through resource generation for TSL, and through its President / Executive Director as the monitoring Board Member of the TSL Board of Directors. Childhope also has a sister organization, FCED (Families and Children for Empowerment and Development) with a community based prevention, education, and advocacy program and has organized in 40 Barangays a Barangay Councils for the Protection of Children (BCPC).


In 1986, Childhope International was established as an international movement specifically on behalf of street children. Childhope Southeast Asia in Manila was established in 1989 as a Branch office during the First Regional Conference on Street Children in Asia. In 1995, Childhope in the Philippines became an independent Philippine non-government organization and registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) as Childhope Asia Philippines. The organization also received its license and accreditation from the Department of Social Welfare and Development in 2001 and from the Philippine Council for NGO Certification (PCNC) in 2003.
