The story of Alouette
Alouette Association was founded in 1991, in the Philippines, by Bernard Pierquin. Mr. Pierquin, a social work executive, was formerly the director of a rehabilitation centre for marginalized juveniles. This work experience and his personal beliefs led him to share his life with the people of the Malibay shantytowns (Pasay City, Manila) for two years. The two years he spent there enabled him to really understand the needs of these people, and to realize that the most urgent requirement involved educating the children.

The French Association
