How the RCCC
The Tuloy Formula
emphasizes 'Christian values', discipline, vocational skills and training for
future productive employment. Following a six-phase program the street
children are gradually and systematically rehabilitated:
Motivation. An atmosphere of freedom and caring is
established to encourage children to leave the streets.
Humanization. The children change their basic
habits towards food, shelter and clothing, with an emphasis on personal
hygiene, orderliness and cleanliness.
The children are helped to cope with their emotional problems in an environment
of loving care with moral and spiritual guidance.
Education. The children attain a sense of self worth through academic and
vocational training giving them the opportunity to aspire to a better and
Pre-integration. Through apprenticeship and on the job training (OJT) the
children are exposed to the working world to prepare them for future employment.
Integration. They then enter the world of
work and settle in new communities.
Saint Don Bosco was an Italian priest
living in the 19th century who dedicated his life to caring for
children. ‘Tuloy’ is a Filipino word meaning “Welcome” or “Come in”.
