TSL's new home, soon to arise
TSL's new home, soon to arise


Half of the year has already passed - and the girls and staff of Tahanan Sta. Luisa continues to seek out opportunities for the center to grow.  A lot of friends and organizations (old and new ones) visited the center to meet the girls and share informative activities and lessons; and last July, the center celebrated its 'Nutrition Month' - for the girls to know more on the importance growing vegetables and the nutrients that we get from it.


One of the dreams from the board members to the staff is finally coming true - to give the girls an adapt "home", as Tahanan Sta. Luisa recently conducted its Groundbreaking Ceremony to their official center! This was made possible because of YOU! =)

The staff would not have done it without the guidance and help of the board of directors and friends of TSL who never stopped helping the girls for years.


With the help of friends who continues to believe in the advcacy of the center, the staff and the girls are forever grateful for the support.

Dear friends,


It's already half of 2016, and the girls are ready for the shool year!

The girls of Tahanan Sta. Luisa had a full pack of schedule as it is summer here in the Philippines, and many are conducting their outreach activities (schools, organizations and companies alike). The girls met new friends and gained new knowledge shared by the visitors.

One of the visitors that came to the center was Australia's Ambassor to the Philippines, her excellency Amanda Gorely.She visited the center last May 5, 2016. The girls prepared a dance presentation to her which she enjoyed as well. 

During the quarter, Ms. Aleta has sent another donation to the center from UN Manhattan. Dra. Aleta is one of TSL’s friends who continuously help the center. The staff and the girls of Tahanan are forever grateful for her.

More past activities of the girls are also posted in their official facebook page - hoping that you will keep on reading their stories and updates, and that it will inspire you more.


Thank you very much, and God bless!

Tahanan Sta. Luisa Updates for Jan-Mar 2016


Happy 2016!  A new year greets the girls of Tahanan Sta. Luisa with new friends, new activities, and new possibilities.


The center currently supports 13 young girls, aged from 10 to 18 years old.

The center's annual report is being completed, and as per its last update, Tahanan Sta. Luisa catered to new admissions (totalling to seven) who needed a loving home and a second parent to take good care of them.

Last year, during the last quarter of the year, one of the girls was invited to have a speech in Asian Development Bank, a recurring donor of the center.  There, she talked about her struggles living in the streets, and the impact of all she is having now that she lives in the center.  She gave a short talk during ADB's program for the International Day of the Girl Child.

This quarter, one of the highlights of their activities was when the center arranged a Prom Night for the girls, held in the center last February 27.  The girls had a great time, as well as the visitors and the staff who attended as well.

The year is starting well for the girls, and hopefully will continue to be even greater than before.


For any concerns and more updates, you can email the center at, or give them a call at (+632) 987 5864.

Thank you for all your continued support to the center, and we will update you next time! :)
