Welcome

We are now accepting sponsors for 2016-2017 Scholarship Program!

This 2016-2017 school year, we are aiming to send hundreds of children from the slums of Helping Land in Tondo, Manila.  Helping Land is home to thousands of families whose main source of livelihood is scavenging from garbage. Because they live way below poverty line, most children here do not go to school and we want to change that by giving scholarships to children who dream to get out of poverty.  AND WE NEED YOUR HELP!  Click here to learn how to send a child to school.

Volunteers and Donations Needed for Daily Soup Kitchen!

JadeIn less than two months since we started the Daily Soup Kitchen (Monday-Friday) at Helping Land and we have seen positive impacts already!

This is Jade, 4 years old, before and after. Healthier and less shy :) ! Jade is just one of the hundreds of children who now gets a healthy and hearty breakfast daily; hundreds are being saved from garbage food poisoning; hundreds go to school in a full stomach!

We are in need of rice, canned goods, noodles, peanut butter, oatmeal, milk, juice, eggs, fruit and vegetables.

Please help us sustain this life-saving feeding program. To donate or to sponsor, please click here.

Project PEARLS focuses its outreach efforts in the slum communities in Tondo, Manila, particularly in Ulingan, Happy Land, Aroma and Helping Land. These 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.

CNN Philippines reports about the communities we serve in Tondo (April 24, 2015)

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.
