Volunteer in the Philippines, a country made up of more than 7,000 islands, where you will instantly be welcomed by warm, upbeat people. The Philippines is geographically and culturally distinctive from mainland Southeast Asia; it’s a place where you’ll encounter coral reefs, tropical rainforests, lush green rice fields and busy cities.
Intern & Volunteer in The Philippines
The Philippines are an enchanting array of islands where you can experience tropical adventures and a rich cultural heritage on each island. From coral reefs to mountain tops, there is so much to do, and love, in the Philippines!
Our projects in the Philippines are all community-based activities based in Tacloban City, in the heart of the Philippines. These projects focus on a number of crucial needs in the local community, whether focused on building homes, supporting nutrition and public health, exploring media and photography, or developing women’s empowerment programs.
When you’re not busy volunteering in the Philippines, you can travel south for amazing snorkelling and diving spots. If you’re really adventurous, why not take a trip to climb the Philippines’ active volcano, Mount Mayon? If you’re looking for a true island experience, visit the islands off the west coast of Leyte, where you can walk around an entire island in ten minutes. If you fancy taking a city break, Tacloban Airport has daily flights to Cebu City and the bustling capital of Manila. It’s also very cheap and easy to fly to neighbouring countries, like Cambodia, Thailand or Vietnam, if you want to see even more of Southeast Asia. For a taste of authentic Filipino cuisine, try Adobo, the national dish, or a local delicacy, deep-fried banana!
