The first quarter of 2015 is a very busy one for the center.


They had many inquiries of volunteers wanting to visit and help in any way they can.  There were also inquiries for on-the-job trainings for college students; as well as inquiries from friends who would like to conduct activities in the center.

This first three months was also a busy one for the staff of Tahanan Sta. Luisa  - as many reports for donors are being  completed. 

We were recently visited by Ms. Erich Gonzales, actress and one of the recurring visitor of TSL. 


If you wish to see more of the girl’s day-to-day activities, kindly visit their official facebook page:


We hope to hear from you!  Please email us at and let us know your thoughts about the center’s program and activities.


Summer is already here in the Philippines – our next report will be about it! Stay tuned!

Tahanan Sta. Luisa Updates for December 2014




This December, the girls of Tahanan Sta. Luisa were very thankful for all the gifts they have received this year.  Their joy overflows specially during the time when they will be giving some of the gifts they received to their loved ones – during the center’s “Family Day”.


December indeed is a month of giving – the center have felt it with an outpour of activities from volunteers, friends and supporters who wished to celebrate the Christmas with the girls.


The girls were busy with school, practices and attending to activities planned by different volunteers and organizations.  We all could not ask for more.


We would like to sincerely thank everyone for their tremendous support to help the center.  We all could not do it without you.


We wish you will all have a prosperous 2015... Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Tahanan Sta. Luisa Updates for November 2014

One more month – and then, it’s Christmas!

Every year, Tahanan Sta.Luisa conducts a Christmas Program / Family Day to the girls and their relatives (if possible).  This is regularly arranged so the girls are able to celebrate the holiday season with their loved ones.

Usually during this month, individual or group donors would ask the girls a list of what they would want to receive as gifts this Christmas.  And what they answer will amaze you – they almost always ask firstly that they will have a Christmas food package that they can give to their families.  They all do not ask for any new personal items (like clothes) before making sure they have enough to give to their family.  Indeed, their selflessness is very inspiring.

During the Family Day, the girls are presenting song and dance numbers to their visitors.  After that comes the lunch or snacks with their relatives – and updating each other with what’s happening with them. The last part of the program is the gift-giving – when the girls are giving their gifts to their families (the ones they requested to receive as a wish list).  We will update you with what’s happened during this year’s Family Day next month.

On other notes, one of TSL’s donors, Korea Foundation for Women visited the center on the first week of November.  Ms. Lee Hae-ri, Chief Manager and Ms. Hyoung Cho, Chairperson of Korea Foundation for Women,  were very delighted to meet the girls; and they enjoyed their stay in Manila.

Lastly, TSL recently ties up with Lamido through its “Lamido4Charites” campaign.  Lamido sells TSL products and ships it for free.  All sales will proceed to the center / the girls who made the personalized accessory.  To see the products, please visit this link:

Happy November, everyone!
