SOCIAL ISSUES

Welcome to Payatas

The Fairplay for All Foundation began as a collaboration between the work of Naomi Tomlinson in England and Roy Moore in the Philippines, both British nationals. Naomi Tomlinson first set up a fundraising charity in England in 2010 after spending a year working with abused girls in Mindanao. Wanting to particularly help those still on the streets she began to fundraise upon returning to England and built up a network of support before returning to the Philippines. Roy Moore, meanwhile, was back in the Philippines after twice volunteering at Mango Tree House, the children’s home of FFA’s now partner charity, ASCF. Beginning his Master’s in Political Science at UP Diliman, Roy also founded football teams in the poor urban communities of Payatas and Kasiglahan due to the rise of football in the Philippines. Payatas FC quickly became a successful team and usually has around 80 different kids training each week, aged 5 years old and above.

Later, they decided to pool resources, expertise and experience in order to work together towards the same vision of helping street kids and marginalised communities in Manila. The drop-in centre was later established in a small rented property in Payatas. With help from supporters, the charity then acquired a bigger building in early 2013. Currently there are forty eight children in the education sponsorship programme and several have been recommended to children’s homes with their situation under investigation.
