    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. These meals are formulated with 21 vitamins and minerals. They will provide a rich source of easily […]

Welcome

We are now accepting sponsors for the 2015-2016 PEARLS Scholarship Program! 

scholarship

We need your help in putting 300 scholars to school this coming school year!  For the last school year of 2014-2015, we have 274 scholars from Nursery to College and not even 50% have sponsors.   Our goal this coming school year is to have a sponsor for each scholar who can support and mentor the student throughout the school year.

All of these children are living below poverty line and with a household monthly income of less than $130 or Php 6000.  And only for less than $1 a day in a school year, you can send a child to school!

For detailed information about the program, please click here.

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.

ULINGAN2010 HELPINGLAND2013

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.

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.
