    NBA & PBA United at PEARLS Turf!

    Late post:  Five years ago, we can’t even put a make shift basketball court inside Ulingan, the first slum community in Manila that we adopted. Now, we are still in disbelief that players from NBA did another basketball clinic for our PEARLS children, this time with PBA players, Jayson Castro, Ranidel De Ocampo, Beau Belga. […]

    How One Child’s Tragic Death Inspired a Charity To Offer Daily Feedings In Tondo

    As written by Frank Schuengel for When in Manila: For most people, eating dinner is an enjoyable experience and one we hardly think of as being dangerous or life threatening. For a small boy called Marco, it was to be the last thing he would ever do. In his legacy, and to help prevent another […]

In 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!

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

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

dreamerWe need your help in putting over 300 scholars to school this coming school year!  This coming school year, we are sending 45 children to nursery, 32 kindergarten, 165 to grade school, 64 to middle and high school and 11 in college!

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!

Education is the only key of these children to change their world out of poverty.  GIVE THE GIFT OF EDUCATION!  Sponsor a child to school.  Change a Life. Change Yours!

To learn more about the PEARLS Scholarship Program , 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.

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.

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.
