The idea for the LOLA Foundation began with Nia Maninang's desire to help poor schoolchildren in the Philippines. The purpose of LOLA is to supply Palawan children with the school supplies they currently lack everything from toothbrushes to coloring books. Care packages, it was decided, will be organized and shipped to various schools throughout the island of Palawan; such efforts will substantially increase the quality of life of the schoolchildren, and provide for a better, more enjoyable schooling experience.

There is currently no other foundation that provides school and hygiene supplies specifically to Palawan elementary schools. Our founding members are dedicated individuals with first-hand knowledge of the region and established school contacts.

The primary operations of the LOLA Foundation will take place in California.
