Program Description

Volunteer for the Visayans (VFV) provides a wide range of program choices for people wanting to Volunteer Abroad in the Philippines through our local community partners and our very own community centers. VFV endeavours to improve the quality of life of the community by providing responsive, efficient and high quality community service through our programs and projects that promote self-efficiency, well being and prosperity of individuals, families and communities all throughout Visayas Region.

VFV initiated programs that will address issues concerning social welfare, education, public health and community development in rural areas surrounding Tacloban City. The design of our programs allows prospective participants of varied skill sets and professions to get involved with a variety of projects.

What we can and are doing at our grass-roots level, is to identify individual and community needs and to establish programs to address these needs. We actively collaborate with other community organizations and local government agencies. We strive to provide comprehensive, multifaceted services that address all aspects of poverty – programs that feed the hungry, keep children healthy, strengthen parental life skills, educate children, and foster optimism for a better future.


Since being founded, Volunteer for the Visayans has grown in size and reach. Below are some of the accomplishments that we have:

4 Community Centres
42 Build-A-Home Projects
4 Adopted Schools
16 Medical Missions
165 SP Sponsored Kids
48 DP Sponsored Kids
Nutrition Sites


VFV accepts volunteers in all age groups (though anyone below 18 must have parental consent) and from all over the world (though a working knowledge of English is required). Diversity makes us a stronger program as everyone has unique life experiences and backgrounds that we can draw on. Some placements require specialized skills, but most do not. Our project descriptions on our website will help you determine which placement would be best for you. Our staff will be happy to help you determine which project works best for you and will guide you through the pre-program stage of your volunteer abroad experience.
