Tuloy kids offer their Hakka for New Zealand. They hope that this video reaches the families and friends of the terrorist victims. Among them are kids who have also experience violence, neglect and abuse. They offer not only their sympathies but also their struggles. “God bless New Zealand!”
The trail blazing Prima Ballerina of the Philippines was in Tuloy to inspire and be inspired. Ballet Manila, which she heads, has been taking in Tuloy kids.
This production would not be possible without the help from our sponsors!

SPEAKING OUT MANILA BULLETIN
By IGNACIO R. BUNYE
James Augustine Dino, a culinary arts graduate, was personally chosen by Chef Alain Ducasse to work in his famous Le Jules Verne restaurant in Paris, France.
Benedict Sabularse and Edmar Sumera, ballet dancers, are considered rising stars in Ballet Academy in Cannes, France, and in Hamburg Ballet school in Germany, respectively.
Robbie Bron, Rene Malleza, Oxenola Adimar, all automotive graduates, had successful stints in the Middle East and are now living in Australia with their families.
Maricar Peñalosa, a member of the Manuvu tribe in North Cotabato, is productively employed in a BPO.
What do James Augustine, Benedict, Edmar, Robbie, Rene, Oxenola, and Maricar have in common?
Years ago, they were malnourished, shabby, and frightened children whom Father Rocky Evangelista rescued from the streets. The good priest took them under his care at the Tuloy Foundation, hoping to transform them into responsible contributing members of society.
Father Rocky has been hugely successful. For the past 25 years, Tuloy Foundation has taken under its wing around 20,000 street children who, otherwise, would have been at risk of becoming perpetual burdens of society or, worse, criminals.
Father Rocky’s formula was simple: Gather these children in a caring and nurturing environment, provide them with their basic needs, give them basic literacy and technical-vocational skills training and initial job placement. More important: teach them to dream and make them realize those dreams via value and spiritual formation.

Please spread the word and help us gather support for an original production that is sure to get you swaying to the groove and whistling to the tunes that made the Philippine 70’s a fun time to be in.
Aside from being a Fund Raiser, it is also a tribute of our kids to one of the Hotdog’s legend, Rene Garcia, who happens to be the brother of one of Tuloy’s indefatigable board member Kuya Greg Garcia. The script was written by our Performing Arts Director Ms. Joonie Garcia who also happens to be the niece of Kuya Rene.
“Pers Lab” (First Love) is not just about the play. We hope you get to experience the huge Love that was put into producing this play. See you all there.
Fr. Rocky was clearly ecstatic to the gut when Tuloy Trainees of Refrigeration and Air-conditioning gifted him with money they have saved so that other students can benefit from the Technical Education offered by Tuloy. In his own words Fr. Rocky messaged as follows.
“I could not hold back my tears when a group of Tuloy students of the Ref. and Air Con Course gave me 20.880.80 pesos in one peso , five peso, and some 20 peso bills collected thru the year to help in their own little way somebody poorer than they ... hard hard earned money thru begging, carry loads at night Widow's mite talaga!!!
What a humbling and inspiring and example from our Tuloy kids.
Thank you friends and benefactors for helping this transformation of our kids.
You help them to help others this early . even if they
are still struggling
God bless us all..

The Philippine U19 National Rugby Development Team defeated Hong Kong for the first time recently in the opening match of the International Development Series.
The future batch of the Philippine Volcanoes, better known as rising stars, put together a stellar performance to outplay their opponents 36 to 12 in sunny conditions at the Southern Plains Sports Field, Calamba.
It was the visitors who opened up the scoring 5 points to nil early in the match, however it wasn’t long until the local heroes put together some teamwork of their own. Lyndon Adlao, an experienced member of both the Eagles RFC and previous National Youth Teams, continued to show why he was force, as he lead from the front, on all facets play. Adlao broke the defensive line early with a barnstorming run for his first try.
A strong display from the Philippine backline kept the Philippines in the match, pressuring the Hong Kong Warriors and capitalizing on their strong defense. It wasn’t long until Adlao swooped again, finding loose ball and open space to score his second try and take the Volcanoes to a 12 to 5 lead after 20 minutes of regular play.
The Philippine forward pack continued to provide strong go forward from Marco Xavier Tan and Fausto Eizmendi. Coach Carlito Abono opted for an early injection for some fresh impact. Abono called upon Reymarc Faller Bustillo of the Makati Chiefs who proved to be a notable difference.
“This is the first time I have seen our local development team play this outstanding, to put on 36 points against a team like the Hong Kong Warriors, it’s tremendous to see. Reymarc Bustillo for me was outstanding, strong runner and very fast off his feet, he had an outstanding game” said Jake Letts of Philippine Rugby
“Proud of the guys, proud Coach and mentor. We still need to be ready on Monday, so our game face is still on,” said Abono.
"XO field for XO kids" in Tuloy sa Don Bosco Street Children Village was featured in ABS-CBNs The Score. The Tuloy Foundation children and staff are truly grateful to Mr. Raymond Tan and his friends for making our XO field a dream come true.
March 4, 2018. Insular Life Theater, Muntinlupa City. The cast of Lion King came to watch a production of the Musical Jesus Christ Superstar by Tuloy Foundation. They could not believe "how amateurs could be so professional" and they gave our kids a standing ovation which moved many of the JCS cast to tears. "We did not waste our time coming here. And enjoyed every minute of it." they said. And to express just how happy they were the Cast of Lion King gave free front-seat tickets to our kids and on May 8 the cast would come to Tuloy and give acting/singing/instrumentation workshops to our children. Yes Oh Wow.
Miss Joonie Garcia, Tuloy's performing arts director with the director of the Musical Lion King.
His Eminence Archbishop Luis Antonio Cardinal Tagle spontaneously ecstatic on hearing about Tuloy's 25th anniversary. Thank you so much dear Cardinal for the warmth and affection you have always been extending to Tuloy even in front of Pope Francis.
