STEPPING INTO THE OUTSIDERS' WORLD This is part of the SAGIP YAGIT Program envisioned by Rev. Rogelio V. Umali, D.D. The SAGIP YAGIT has a deep meaning such as: SAGIP stands for Save, support And Guide Indigents into Peace, Prosperity, and Pro-active Life, while YAGIT is Young And Adult Got, getting Into Troubles, Tribulations and Trauma. Outsiders are also called the street dwellers and are part of the YAGIT. The corresponding SAGIP is also presented in this project; STEPPING INTO THE OUTSIDERS' WORLD. WHO ARE THE OUTSIDERS? Outsiders are human beings! They are people like us who are in serious troubles. They are the "yagit" as commonly called and described upon by the society and even themselves. Poverty is the principal caused that put them into such situations - out from homes and away from their families. They are the homeless people - young and old and oftentimes hopeless, manipulated and exploited! People who need and long for understanding and supports of their fellowmen. WHERE DO THEY LIVE? Most of them live in the cities particularly in the vicinities of churches, schools, markets, commercial areas, parks and other busy places frequented by people. They depend too much on the from other people thru feeding, mendicancy, menial services and prostitutions, etc. WHY DO THEY BECOME OUTSIDERS? The common factors why they become outsiders are 1) poverty, 2) family disputes and violence, 3) peer influence, 4) political instability, 5) calamities such as typhoons, and floods and 6) fire. WHAT MUST WE DO TO HELP THE OUTSIDERS? Given the opportunity of helping the outsiders, we must be careful enough of handling our intervention programs. Steps in caring them must always be based upon the type or category of the outsiders and their status. The right approaches and interventions must be done and carried out in order to be successful in putting things into right proportion.
