Fairplay TV

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.

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.
