    PEARLS Summer Program Graduation

    When we conceptualized the Summer Program, our goal is to keep children away from the possibilities of child labor. We want to provide the kids a child-friendly space where they can learn, interact, play and have fun. The next thing we know, a month and a half have passed, and we see how kids have […]

Welcome

We are humbled and honored to be named as the Global Pinoy Family of the Year by Jollibee and Coca-Cola!  Read our story.

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 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.
