Are you ready to embark on an adventure that’s both inspiring and life-changing? We’ve got something incredible for you. Picture this: a teaching program in El Nido, Palawan, one of the most vibrant tourist destinations in the Philippines. But here’s the kicker – it’s not just any program; it’s a chance to transform lives and make a lasting impact.
In this beautiful corner of the world, where tourism thrives and English is the key to unlocking opportunities, there’s a unique need.

Cultural exchange is a vital component of this program. These Filipino kids are eager to explore the world and learn about foreign lands, including your culture, traditions, and stories. So, bring a piece of your home with you, be it photos, mementos, or tales. Share your world, and they’ll share theirs in return.
Teaching is a noble calling, and it comes with great responsibility. Your role is not limited to teaching English; you’ll prepare lessons, organize activities, and create a dynamic learning environment. You’ll be part of a supportive team, working closely with local teachers to provide the best education.

In our tree planting initiative, we have carefully selected Moringa and Mahogany seeds due to their manifold benefits, local availability, and adaptability to the region. Mahogany is renowned worldwide for its exquisite wood, valued for its beauty, strength, and durability. However, few are aware of its medicinal properties, as the seeds contain saponins and flavonoids, which may aid in fever treatment, cholesterol reduction, and improved blood circulation.
Moringa, often hailed as a “superfood” or the “miracle tree,” offers a plethora of health benefits. Its pods, leaves, seeds, and roots are all edible and treasured by local villagers for their potential medicinal uses. From prevention to treatment of various diseases, Moringa holds a special place in their home remedies. Additionally, its pods and leaves find their way into local cuisine, complementing fish or meat dishes splendidly.
This program is tailor-made for individuals who possess good physical fitness, boundless enthusiasm, and an unwavering passion for effecting positive change for the environment and the local community. Please note that tide changes can impact water levels and may affect your ability to complete certain tasks in the mangroves. In such cases, our knowledgeable coordinators will guide you toward alternative activities. Your schedule will be communicated to you in the event of any adjustments due to weather conditions, local factors, or unforeseen circumstances.
Let’s embark on this transformative journey together, starting each day with a nourishing breakfast. We’ll then delve into the crucial task of mangrove planting, guided by experts and locals who share your dedication. After a rewarding morning’s work, return to the center for a fulfilling lunch, recharging your energy for the coastal clean-up efforts that follow. As the day draws to a close, gather at the center once again for a delightful dinner, reflecting on the progress made and the bonds forged.
Our schedule for the week revolves around our core mission. On Tuesday, alongside mangrove planting, we’ll prepare Mahogany and Moringa seeds at the camp nursery. Wednesday brings the opportunity to engage in environmental conservation lessons, while Thursday features an enlightening lecture on the subject. Finally, on Friday, we’ll conclude the week by planting trees, specifically Mahogany and Moringa, as we contribute to a greener future.
Let’s keep in mind that this schedule remains flexible, allowing for adjustments based on weather conditions, local considerations, and unforeseen circumstances.

Ervaringsverhalen Abroad Escape
Mijn vrijwilligersreis was absoluut de beste reis en ervaring van mijn leven!
Het is een geweldig programma! Ik heb echt genoten van mijn tijd. Het was een ervaring die ik nooit zal vergeten.
Mijn ervaring was in veel opzichten positief. Het personeel bestaat uit geweldige mensen met wie het van het begin tot het einde leuk is om mee samen te werken. Het was fascinerend om tussen hen te leven en hun levensstijl en tradities te ervaren.
Ik heb 4 weken vrijwilligerswerk gedaan in Thailand en ik heb er echt van genoten. Het was een leuke ervaring!
Ik heb een hele leuke tijd gehad in Nepal, ik heb veel geleerd over de cultuur en de mensen. Nepal begon echt als thuis te voelen. De mensen en kinderen in het weeshuis zijn heel aardig voor me en ik vond het heerlijk om dingen met ze te doen.
Het programma was goed en de steun van de coördinator was geweldig. Dit waren de beste 2 weken in Thailand, ik voelde me behulpzaam en speciaal om deel uit te maken van dit programma. Ik heb genoten van elke minuut. Bedankt!
