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 then lived in Ulingan, Tondo now live in a relocation site in Batia, Bulacan. Up to this date our Scholarship Program is ongoing to over 300 children and we currently conduct outreach activities there once a month and seminars and trainings for the families every now and then.
LAKAS Tribe, Botolan, Zambales
is a small, indigenous Aeta community located in Botolan, Zambales. Project PEARLS adopted this community in December 2014 and now visits often for various special programs especially during Christmas. The LitClub program for elementary children is currently running there. A classroom and community center for high school students was donated by Project PEARLS for the community in 2015.
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 the current programs and activities of Project PEARLS in the community.
