The Philippines is a fast growing country in Southeast Asia, with multiculturalism and rich biodiversity that makes it an exciting and dynamic place to learn and grow.
Since 1964, thousands of volunteers of varied nationalities have worked with partners in government, non-government and people’s organisations in the Philippines, while more than 1,600 Filipino volunteers have been deployed to various countries.
Volunteers have worked in a wide range of professions and expertise including health, education, livelihoods, gender and development, helping community organisations and government agencies towards the achievement of development goals.
Volunteering for development is guaranteed to be a life-changing experience. The experience of volunteers in the Philippines has been fulfilling for many, as touching lives creates deeply inspiring memories. 90% of our returned volunteers recommend volunteering with VSO, with a good number re-volunteering themselves.
We're looking forward to welcoming you soon!
