    Project PEARLS Summer Program

    There is nothing that make our spirits happier than to see these children with paper, pens and crayons rather than with sacks, shovels, garbage and charcoals. Project PEARLS Summer Program aims to help these children to Explore. Create. Discover. Wonder. Grow.

    Operation One Love: Day 5

    Five days on air, sea, and land with these crazy, yes crazy PEARLS volunteers made this Project Pearls Operation One Love worthwhile and very memorable.

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.

Last year, over three hundred Ulingan families were relocated to Batia, 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.
