Tuloy Foundation, Inc. began in 1993 and was registered with the SEC as a non-stock, non-profit corporation on September 23, 1996 by Fr. Marciano ‘Rocky’ Evangelista, SDB. TFI then constructed a 3.5-storey building within the compound of St. John Bosco Parish in Makati that had complete facilities – including dormitories, study area, dining room, and kitchen – for its residential program. Two years later, TFI began offering non-formal education that has a DepEd-approved curriculum especially designed for street children. In 2001, TFI moved to a 4.5-hectare property in Alabang, Muntinlupa given to the foundation by the Department of Social Welfare and Development via a 50+50 years lease at no cost basis in 1998. The land has since been developed into a village complete with facilities necessary for the well-rounded development of children. At present, there are 10 residential structures, a school building and technical vocational skills workshops that have been recently expanded to accommodate more trainees and improve air circulation. Its office is located at Alabang-Zapote Road cor. San Jose Village, Alabang, Muntinlupa City. The organization has 58 regular staff, 10 project-based staff, 1 part-time staff, 84 volunteers and 14 members of the Board of Trustees.
