“Play is so integral to childhood that a child who does not have the opportunities to play is cut off from a major portion of childhood.” -Musselwhite
In partnership with Philippine Toy Library and Books for the Barrios, Project PEARLS provides children with a place and time to create their own opportunities to learn and grow through reading and playing.
The schedule for Reading and Toy Library in our community in Tondo, Manila is: Monday to Friday, 9 am to 11:30 am. This is right after the Daily Soup Kitchen where we provide breakfast to hundreds of children from 8:00 – 9:00 am. Please feel free to volunteer for both activities. To volunteer, please sign up here.
We are always on the lookout for good quality used toys, games, puzzles, dress-up items (hats, accessories, fashion jewelries), globes, building blocks, dolls, children books and magazines.
If you’d like to donate any pre-loved toys then either email us or speak to one of our staff at a session.
