Here’s the full episode of Reel Time (GMA News TV 11) episode where they featured Project Pearls. Help us transform the lives of children living in extreme poverty.

Project PEARLS focuses its outreach efforts in the slum communities in Tondo, Manila, particularly in 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.

Young children work 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.

Below is Ulingan, the first slum community that we adopted back in 2010 where we put up our first Learning Center; established our Scholarship Program and Feeding Program.

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.
