    A Sorok Film Festival Entry

    Project PEARLS joined the SOROK FILM FESTIVAL Contest not only with the hope of winning but more so to raise awareness about the reality of poverty in the Philippines and our humble mission in helping the children living in it. To help us win and bring more educational opportunities to the underprivileged children, please watch […]

Welcome

THANK YOU everyone who supported our Noche Buena Fund Drive!  Because of you, over a thousand families (in Tondo, Bulacan, Zamboanga)  had food on the table this Christmas! Please check our photo albums on our Facebook page.

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.

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.
