Tuloy in Pilipino, our national language, means "welcome" and "to continue". "Tuloy po!" can also mean "This is Tuloy!"
We started Tuloy in 1993 to rescue street children, and give them a home, direction, and the skills they will need in the real world. We had 12 children then in a 40-sqm room. Over 17 years, Tuloy has served more than 10,000 children in need. The small room is now a village on 4.5 hectares of land in southern Metro Manila.
Every year, hundreds of disadvantaged children and youth, many of them hopeless, choose to learn in Tuloy classrooms and workshops instead of wasting time in the streets. Education is part of their dream of a better life.
Help Tuloy put more poor children through school! Remember, Tuloy education is free!

The Power of Choice
“People can change…but real change is the outcome of personal choice and voluntary commitment… It begins with the right to say ‘no’.”
Every child who comes to live or study in Tuloy makes the decision everyday to transform his life. He knows that the decision is his key to a better future.
The Drucker Foundation in 1999 acknowledged this Tuloy guiding principle in The Power of Choice, one of the thought articles in their first book in the Wisdom to Action Series, “Leading Beyond the Walls”.
Angels in Tuloy
Angels abound in Tuloy. They are the people who generously share their time, talent, or treasure in the service of street children. Their dedication and commitment enable the children Tuloy serves to undertake a transformation journey.
Be a Tuloy angel and partner with us in our work of keeping kids off the streets.
