From the Streets
to the Campus


From the Streets to the Campus provides scholarship grants to indigent but well-deserving college students.

The organization began its education program, From the Streets to the Campus, in June 2002 because it firmly believes that education is the fundamental building block of a person's road to self-respect and self-reliance, as well as a crucial factor in reducing the issues brought on by poverty.

The launching of the program, From the Streets to the Campus, in 2002.

The program began when the foundation approached the Missionaries of Charity and the Mother of Divine Providence organizations to offer educational scholarships to indigent high school graduates in their respective areas. This eventually led to the foundation partnering with various universities to screen and select scholarship applications in their respective universities.

Charity First Foundation Inc. began with 40 scholars in 2002 and currently has a total of 330 scholars. To date, Charity First has seen a total of 654 graduates in various fields such as education, accountancy, engineering, nursing, social work, banking and finance, and vocational and technological courses.


The initial partner universities are the following:

  • Polytechnic University of the Philippines

  • Philippine Normal University

  • Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Manila

  • Universidad De Manila

  • Technological University of the Philippines

  • Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Marikina,

  • University of the Philippines – Diliman – College of Social Work and Community Development


Through our education program, the organization also sealed a partnership with the DSWD Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program to help the deserving youth of today achieve their dreams.

Yearly, the department sends their child beneficiaries as applicants to the foundation for possible scholarship grants. All pantawid beneficiaries also undergo a thorough screening process based on the standards set by the foundation.

Also, once they become a scholar, they must follow the rules and regulations of the foundation to maintain their scholarship.

To date, we have 64 4Ps beneficiaries with good academic standing.
