Volunteers are needed in the Philippines to help alleviate poverty. Volunteers will help build housing or work on a school in Cebu City. Developing World Connections has given a long-term commitment to our in-country partner, Rise Above Foundation Cebu, to help improve the community members’ options and increase their self-sufficiency.
After you're done volunteering, we recommend you explore old Manila and see what remains of the massive wall that protected the Intramuros (Walled City). A side trip to Bohol Island is also worthwhile for the historic sites, vast beaches and unique Chocolate Hills.
