Volunteering in the Philippines

Maloy Tiongson, Director, VSO Philippines

We invite you to join over 1,000 Filipino volunteers who have shared their skills and knowledge in helping poor communities in some 45 countries. 

They all come from a wide range of professions and expertise, all brought together by one common goal:  build a better life for people living in poverty. 

Volunteering for development is guaranteed to be a life-changing experience. 90% of our returned volunteers recommend volunteering with VSO, with a good number re-volunteering themselves.

After super typhoon Haiyan struck central Philippines in November 2013, at least 100 VSO Filipino alumni joined local and international organizations in providing emergency relief and rebuilding lives.  When a strong earthquake devastated Nepal in April 2015, Filipinos were among the first batch deployed by VSO to provide emergency response.

We’re pleased to announce that we shall soon implement a new country programme in the Philippines, with disaster risk reduction and management (DRRM) and peace-building as key themes. The programme will involve a blend of national, international, youth, corporate and eminent volunteers. 

Here’s looking forward to welcoming you onboard soon!

All good wishes,

Maloy Tiongson
