    Amazing Things Happen with Great Teamwork

    Last February 7, we were hoping to have 20 volunteers and to pack 4,000 meals! But 48 volunteers came from all over San Francisco Bay Area and packed 8,424 meals in less than an hour and a half.

    A Visit to Aeta Community

Project PEARLS focuses its outreach efforts in the slum communities in Tondo, Manila, particularly in Ulingan and Helping Land. Both communities sit on a dumpsite where children have no choice but to live with garbage, mosquitoes, flies, and vermin. Children and families in Ulingan also live on soot and around toxic smoke from the charcoal factories.

Young children work either at the charcoal factories and/or at the dumpsite as scavengers. The common meal is “pagpag”(leftover food from fast-food restaurants scavenged from garbage sites) “Pagpag” means to shake away the dirt and maggots in the food.  Please check our various Outreach Programs and read how you can help.

In 2013,  over three hundred Ulingan families were relocated to Brgy. Batia at Bocaue, Bulacan by Philippine’s Department of Social Welfare and Development and National Housing Authority. To ensure the successful transition of these families, Project PEARLS is extending its outreach efforts to these families. To learn more about the Philippine government’s relocation program, click here.

Project PEARLS built a learning center at the relocation village in Bulacan where we hold nursery classes, after school programs, livelihood program, and other outreach events.
