In coordination with a local NGO organization, I Can Make A Difference, the Pearls Project Foundation visited the Badjao community of the Yellow Boat Community of Sta. Cruz Island last week and spread the love of Christmas thru gifts of toys and knowledge. The community is under the care of the Yellow Boat of Hope Foundation (YBFH).

The Project Pearls was founded in 2008 by a mother and daughter, Melissa Villa and Francesca Villa Mateo, who are based in California, USA. With donations and pledges, the Foundation have been making rounds of poor communities giving food, medical help, toys, books, livelihood, and educational scholarships.

When it got connected with the YBHF and I Can, they collaborated together to come out with this noble Christmas project.  Visit Project Pearls Facebook account and learn how to be a part of this humanitarian program.
