The Payatas Paper
The Payatas Paper is a student newspaper written by our scholars in Payatas, focusing on issues in the community and sharing stories that can be a source of inspiration for many others.
It began during the lockdown due to the Covid-19 pandemic. With nothing much possible to do, this became a way the scholars could do something and make a constructive use of their time to share their stories.
Fairplay TV follows the story of the Payatas Football Club and the personal journey of the girls as they compete against some of the best women’s teams in the country.
See how the girls are fighting to change the image of their hometown with episodes featuring what the girls have to go through off the pitch, from scavenging to coaching, hard-hitting topics like the impact of childhood trauma on our physical and mental health, and of course some great highlights, skills, and goals from the games.
Humans of Payatas
At Humans of Payatas we share real stories from people in Payatas. Payatas is one of the largest and poorest slums in the Philippines, but it’s also home to great people with unique and beautiful stories.
Humans of Payatas began as a way to give people their power back. Because no matter how poor someone is, no matter anyone’s situation, they have the power to tell their own story, so we just have to ask and listen.
