Phillippines Typhoon Response
Become a disaster volunteer, helping devastated Tacloban residents and communities to rebuild their lives on an operation dedicated to Typhoon Haiyan Disaster Relief and Recovery in the Philippines. At Kaya, we have been working in Tacloban for 5 years and although everyone is safe, the city has been destroyed. Essential work is needed both immediately in the form of emergency relief and in the long term through sustained recovery.

Be a Volunteer Teacher in the Philippines
The benefits of volunteering extend to you - the volunteer, and to the Romblon community where you will serve. Personal benefits include development of life skills, personal growth, friendship, increased self confidence, social awareness, and building independence. An international volunteer experience will also enhance career prospects. When you volunteer with GVN, you can be assured you are helping a local grassroots organisation.
Build a needed home or women's centre in the Philippines
Join locals and other volunteers working with our in-country partner, Rise Above Foundation, in building a home for a family in need or a women's centre that will provide training for some of the poorest women in Cebu, Philippines. The people who will benefit will find their lives drastically improved by the work you help with. In addition to volunteering, we recommend exploring old Manila and see what remains of the massive wall that protected the Intramuros (Walled City).
Photography and Media Production for an NGO in the Philippines
Volunteer in the Philippines for this grassroots NGO and help to raise awareness of the socioeconomic issues which face local Filipinos. This organisation has many established social welfare projects which act as a support line for many disadvantaged people in the local community. However, the social and economic issues present in the Philippines often go unrecognised. This media project aims to address this by documenting and highlighting the issues concerned to a more international audience.

Teach in a Rural School in the Philippines
English is the country's second official language, and therefore it is not surprising that most Filipinos can understand, speak and write at least some English. But teachers in poorer schools are often not native English speakers, and so the presence of native or fluent volunteers is extremely valuable and exciting for the children and teachers alike. Volunteers teach in elementary schools within rural villages where resources are low and the most help is required and appreciated.
