Education & Literacy

The core mission of Project PEARLS is to break the cycle of poverty through education. We believe that by providing adequate resources and support to children and youth, they can have a brighter and better future. We also aim to develop their potential and skills so they can be changemakers and leaders in their own communities.

Let us change the world, one child at a time.

Scholarship Program

From the first batch of 40 Nursery scholars in 2010, we now have more than 500 scholars from preschool to college. These scholars come from three communities: Helping Land, Tondo; Bocaue, Bulacan; and Zamboanga Sibugay. They receive complete school supplies, monthly grocery packs, transportation allowance, tutorial opportunities, and most importantly, an environment of learners and mentors that support their holistic development.

We invite you to change a life now. Give the gift of education.


Together with LitWorld, an international non-profit organization advocating for global literacy, we established Literacy Clubs in different communities. LitClubs facilitate in-depth literacy and empowerment programs for girls and boys, ages 10 to 14. More than just a literacy tutorial, it is “a space for joyful learning, creative expression, community building, and developing social-emotional skills.”

Community Learning Programs

We conduct various learning activities for children after the feeding program in Tondo. From Monday to Friday, we have the Toy Library and Time2Learn programs that hone their cognitive and social skills through creative play and basic literacy tutorials. On Saturdays, we do Brain Booster activities, such as art and crafts, to develop their creativity and artistic skills. And on Sundays, we have the After School Program to provide free tutorials to inspire kids to excel academically.

In Bulacan, high school scholars conduct mentorship and tutorial for younger scholars every weekend.
