Project PEARLS Mother’s Day Celebration


May 12, 2019 | Tondo, Manila, Philippines

“The influence of a mother upon the lives of the children cannot be measured.

They know and absorb her example and attitudes when it comes to questions of honesty, temperance, kindness and industry.”

-Billy Graham

It’s Mother’s Day today!

And we celebrated it with the kids of Helping Land and some of the mothers in the community. We celebrated with games in which both kids and mothers joined in!

We also had some kids who performed!

Our Nursery and Kinder kids with their mothers even sang and danced for us!

Such cuties!

On this day, we also took the opportunity to honor all the mothers. PEARLS kids sang a song just for them.

And here’s a few line of the song, “Salamat” (Thank You) by Yeng Constantino that the kids sang:

“Ang awiting ito’y para sa’yo
At kung maubos ang tinig, di magsisisi
Dahil iyong narinig mula sa labi ko
Salamat, salamat.”

(This song is for you.

And if the voice will be gone, will never regret

Because you heard from my lips

Thank you. Thank you)

With no doubts, a mother’s love will always be the greatest and the most unconditional one.

To all the mothers around the globe, Happy Mother’s Day! We salute you for all the sacrifices you’ve done for your families and loved ones! Thank you for you never running out of  love, care and generosity not just for your own family but for everyone you love so dear.

Happy Mother’s Day too to our Founder, Melissa Villa! She’s truly a mother to hundreds of kids. She dreams and always does her best to help these children get out of poverty through education.

Thank you for all the hard works, Mommy Melissa!

We would also like to deeply thank our feeding sponsor for today, Paper and Pen who also distributed school supplies for the kids.

And thank you to all our volunteers for this day’s outreach!
