The mission of Payatas Poverty Alleviation Foundation (PPAF) is to help alleviate poverty in Payatas, Quezon City. We exist to provide opportunities and give hope to impoverished Payatas residents. Our programs range from adult education to house/shelter to sports and to development and environment.

We simply do not give dole outs. We help people help themselves. We open the doors that would lead them out of poverty.
