Hi there! We are inviting you to volunteer in our Saturday Feeding and Brain Booster program!
What is the Saturday Feeding and Brain Booster Program?
Project PEARLS has been doing this program throughout the years at the communities they serve It provides healthy meals to the most malnourished kids and help them bring out and enjoy their creative side through the Brain Booster activity where they do arts and crafts sessions. For children living in extreme poverty, breakfast can be their one and only meal. A meal that can define if they will survive or not. This is the heartbreaking reality that Project PEARLS aims to change.
Through our Feeding Programs, we want to provide a delicious and nutritious meal to children to help decrease the incidence of malnutrition. This is done every day in Helping Land, a slum community in Tondo, Manila. Helping Land is home to hundreds of families whose main source of livelihood is scavenging from garbage. Most of them fill their hunger by relying on “pagpag” – leftover food from restaurants scavenged from trash. (For more information about this, please visit this article
We need volunteers who can help us in setting up the feeding area, distributing the food, and supervising the children while they are playing. We welcome volunteers who love playing and interacting with kids especially during our dancing exercise!
Join us every Saturday and show your love for the kids!
