I recently arrived from Manila, Philippines on June 21, 2011 after staying for three weeks and accomplishing PPFF’s objectives to assist the Filipino poor, which are:
1. to provide basic catechism for the Sacraments 2. to provide basic knowledge of Christian marriage, and family, and parenting 3. to assist street families in securing basic documents such as birth and baptismal certificates so as to take part in governmental and non-governmental programs designed to provide for their basic needs, and the education of their children; 4. to provide vocational and skills training (PPFF has a total of 4 scholars undergoing skills training at St Peter's Velle Technical School Cubao, Quezon City)(created July 7, 2011)
PPFF in partnership with Sacred Heart Parish (SHP) located in Quezon City, Philippines conducted a four day workshop in June for eleven (11) couples, who are living on the streets and in the slums of Manila and for the most part do not have documentation, and were living together an average of 10 years.

Our programs for the Filipino poor especially the street families living in Manila are aimed at instilling hope for a better life. And we believe in giving in a way that is sustainable and promote self sufficiency. We recognized the importance of ongoing follow up in order to accomplish our goals... Video
He Cares Mission has taken on the role to follow up the street families who attended our workshop. Every Saturday, they have an event for street children accompanied by their parents. You are welcome to check out their website and please feel free to give them a call and to volunteer in their programs.
Workshop June 2010
On the first day of the workshop, we went to Nia Road in Quezon City and met the street families and asked them to come and join us for a free workshop. We were honored that they trusted us and dedicated four days of their lives to growing closer to God, and trying to improve their lives. We’re so proud of them.
I would like to extend my thanks to all who contributed financially to the Workshop 2010 for Street Families Living in Manila themed “Mahal Ako ng Diyos, May Plano Siya Sa Aking Buhay”(God Loves Me, and He Has a Plan For My Life). The workshop took place at the He Cares Center in Quezon City, Philippines from June 14-17 and June 22-25 in two sessions which started at 8:30am to 3pm daily.
Health for our Future Generation
In our next project, we hope to immunize hundreds of street children and at the same time offer the free workshop again. We also hope to bring with us Filipino-American youth on our next mission. Interested teenagers please contact us. We would appreciate your support for our next project.
