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.
Erika Louise Ville, Naic, Cavite
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.
