Welcome

Project PEARLS just launched its 2017-2018 Scholarship Program!

There’s no better time to give the gift of education but NOW! Giving children living poverty better access to education will give them more chances in life. Education will increase their chances of having a healthy life; of making the right choices; of being employed; of being able to participate in the political process that will shape their future too.

For as little as less than $1 a day for a school year, you can change the life of a child, including yours.

Give the Gift of Education through Project PEARLS Scholarship Program!

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. 

HELPINGLAND2013

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.

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

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.
