Volunteer in Philippines
Volunteer work in the Philippines ranges from placements in rural health clinics to working with and teaching children in Kindergartens and primary schools alike. With the unfortunate unequal distribution of wealth many communities don’t have access to some of life's necessities and many people are in need of assistance in areas we may take for granted. Volunteering in a local community or at a district school will undeniably end up being a once in a lifetime experience and the impact you will make will never be forgotten. Volunteers who choose to visit this magical country will be faced with countless choices to help make a difference in the lives of children and communities in the region.
On top of the warm and welcoming manner of the people, the humidity can reach almost a hundred percent, so remember this when you are packing for your trip! Fiestas or local festivals are also a common occurrence in many of the rural communities across the country and celebrations include eating, drinking and dancing and are a wonderful way to celebrate a love for life!
When volunteering abroad in the Philippines you will find a vast array of exotic islands and their natural wonders to visit - these could include stunning waterfalls, majestic volcanoes and ancient caves. Taking the close proximity of all the islands into account, travel around the region is generally very easy and affordable, meaning you will literally be able to explore every bit of the country during your time volunteering there.
Making a difference in the lives of the adorable children of the rural communities or even aiding in construction efforts on the island will truly open your mind and leave with the kind of memories that will truly last a lifetime. Volunteering abroad in the Philippines is really a once in a lifetime opportunity. read more close
Volunteering in one of the local daycare centers was quite the experience as I was able to see firsthand how important it is to learn English at such an early age, especially in a poverty stricken country, such as the Philippines. I didn’t spend my time simply teaching English, however, I also taught simple things such as shapes, colors, songs, using manners, and how to show respect.
