Real LIFE Foundation is a Philippine nongovernmental organization that exists to honor God by serving and empowering the underprivileged youth of the Philippines through educational assistance, character formation, and leadership development.
I am Ronnie Chu, a Real LIFE alumnus from Pasig City. My stepfather earned very little from driving a tricycle. So in high school, I had to walk three kilometers to go to school. In college, before becoming a Real LIFE scholar, I became a house boy to a family my mother was baby sitting for.
I am Jireh, the fourth of five children of Pantaleon, a shoe repairman, and Belinda, a housewife. Life was never easy for our family. There were times when we only had rice and soy sauce to eat. I would walk to and from school because my allowance was not enough to pay for public transportation.

I am Joel Pereyra, the second of four children. My father, who had a car repair shop, was able to provide well for the family. The time came when my parents fought and my father eventually left the house, staying instead at his shop.
