Our Story
Founded in 2008 by mother and daughter, Melissa Villa and Francesca Villa Mateo, initially to help Melissa’s deaf and mute childhood friend and daughters who are living in a squatter area. Melissa helps in sending her friend’s daughters to school. Realizing that their extra savings in dollars go a long way in the Philippines, they started sending school supplies to other school children living in different slum communities. In the summer of 2010, Melissa was introduced to the children of Ulingan by photo journalist, Sidney Snoeck. Since then, the focus of Project PEARLS’ outreach efforts is in Ulingan, a slum and garbage dumpsite community where over 400 families contend all day with the heat, fumes, dust, stench, flies, mosquitoes and vermin. Project PEARLS, under the leadership of Melissa’s brother, Juan Villa has a weekly Feeding Program, Scholarship Program and quarterly Medical Mission in Ulingan.
