  • Description


    Hi I'm Mary, a Filipino lady running my small guest house and cafe in Sabang, Palawan. We're located 2 minutes walk to the beach on a nice block of land where I try to grow as many vegetables and herbs as I can. I often have Filipino workers here, though since I'm always working on various projects around my place, in the garden, or the guesthouse, extra help is always useful! I'm very flexible and happy to use your skills in whichever area you wish to volunteer.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Learn about Filipino carpentary. We're very good at using native materials such as bamboo and drift wood to build things. If you want to help in the garden you can learn about planting and maintaining our various local fruit and vegetables trees. Or, learn about Filipino cuisines. Here in Sabang, we don't have electricity unless we use our generators or solar panels. We also live in quite a small village, so access to things you'd typically find in a large supermarket is limited. So here you can experience living in a fairly remote environment, as the Filipino's do !

Otherwise, enjoy daily runs on our 2 beautiful beaches and swim untill your hearts content.
