Spreading PEARLS in various communities
Project PEARLS’ mission is currently focused on the following communities:
Helping Land, Tondo, Manila
an impoverished community located in Tondo, Manila. The community is situated in an active dumpsite and the people’s main source of living is making “pagpag”, which is leftover food from restaurants.
St. Martha’s Village, Brgy. Batia, Bocaue, Bulacan
The families and children who lived in Ulingan, Tondo were relocated in 2013 at Brgy. Batia, Bulacan. We are focused on helping children change the odds through our Scholarship Program with more than 400 scholars, and also serve hundreds of meals through the Hunger Relief Program. This community also is where we started our empowerment program, G.R.O.W in 2019 to help uplift the lives of women and their families.
Erika Louise Ville, Naic, Cavite
This is the relocation site of around 700 families from the community of Temporary Housing, Tondo Manila. We adopted this community in 2018 by continuing the Scholarship Program, LiClubs for children and now, because of the COVID-19 pandemic crisis, conducts a thrice-a-week Hunger Relief Program to help families survive each day.
Zamboanga Sibugay, Mindanao
is a province in Zamboanga and home to some impoverished families and children in the Mindanao Region. LitClubs for elementary and high school children and the Scholarship Program for high school students are our current programs and activities in the community.
