The Father’s Heart

Today we want to feature the Puso ng Ama (or the Father’s Heart) Foundation and try to put the spotlight on their Children’s Library Project.


This non-government, non-profit community of young people helps kids in Payatas.

If you’re not familiar with Payatas, it’s one of the poorest areas in Metro Manila.
People called it Payatas from “Payat sa Itaas” (“Thin at the Top” in Tagalog) which means the soil is not fit for farming.  Thus the site is still where the city’s largest open dumpsite resides.

Assessing the enormous needs of the young people living there, Puso ng Ama Foundation is responding by putting up a Children’s Library at their center.  

Staffer Ben Salvedia is now collecting book donations.  We hope you will consider going through your books and lending a hand by donating some of them.  Book cases are also needed.  *Please do not give used workbooks. 

Books can be dropped off at all Books for Less bookstores.
