About the Volunteering Program in Philippines

Location: Cebu, The Philippines
Start Dates: Start every Monday throughout the year
Arrival and Departure : Cebu International Airport
Accommodation : Homestay

We have some wonderful community volunteering projects in beautiful Cebu which will give you the opportunity to experience the Philippines in a very meaningful way. Our program in the Philippines is very flexible as you can start every Monday throughout the year. The arrival is on the Sunday before your start date.

The capital of Cebu island is Cebu City. Cebu City is the first Spanish settlement in the country and the oldest city in the country. Cebu City is the Queen City of the South on Cebu Island in the Philippines and is one of the most popular destinations in all of the Philippines for foreign visitors.

Typhoon Haiyan also caused a lot of damage in the areas where we organise our programs. The damage was mainly material damage to houses and buildings which means these already very poor people had to rebuild their houses. Fortunately, besides the damage to buildings and houses, all the children and staff involved in our projects were fine after typhoon Haiyan.

Volunteers stay in a Homestay accommodation during their program. Staying with a local Filipino family is a great way to get to know the Filipino culture and to experience the Filipino hospitality.

Testimonials

We had an amazing time teaching and interacting with the kids. They were absolutely adorable and seeing the smiles on their faces is exactly what we came for. The coordinators are some of the nicest people we have ever met. They were more then accommodating and took great care of us. We felt very safe and are grateful we got the chance to meet them. It was a great week and we are very happy we got the chance to participate in this project.

It’s a great program! The children love to learn and it’s nice to see them enjoying the meals we prepare for them. I was new at teaching and the coordinator helped me to get started and I ended up loving it. I truly enjoyed my time in The Philippines. It was an experience I will never forget.
Marianne Van Camp, Belgium

The program was a great experience for me. I had a fortunate childhood and I was given a good education which is why I wanted to see and help children who have a very different up bringing. I have learnt a lot about poverty and the Filipino culture. The kids I taught were very smart and happy. They were very willing to learn which was amazing.
