We are a small European non-profit organisation that is teaching street kids in Malate in Manila. We are involved in several projects around the Philippines, yet the Teaching project in Manila is the main project for which we are looking for volunteers.
While teaching the kids in our program you learn a lot about the Philippines, Manila, Malate and also about how very different life is growing up in the street, with sometimes nobody taking care of you.
We teach street children in Manila and are looking for help and people taking responsibility within our projects. We are not looking for high-profile teachers, yet for strong personalities that have experience with street kids and kids in general.
Each of us helping the organisation longer term is staying in a hostel. We usually use one and the same hostel, as the staff and management knows our organisation for a long time and are usually very helpful with everything. We recently found a small unit that can also be used from time to time, it depends who is already there teaching.
If you are flexible we are grateful and try our best to offer you the best accommodation that we have on hand and accommodate you as homy as possible. Accommodation is paid for in advance and a daily food allowance is paid weekly, after the volunteers have successfully helped teaching and report to the organisation as agreed.
This is a small measure in order to avoid people taking advantage of our offer. Because we are only a very small organisation, funding is as small and we want to make sure every penny that we spend on volunteers instead of in the kids, is well spend.
Manila is a place that you start to enjoy when you stay for some time, people that only pass by for a few days ususally find it very busy and complain about the traffic. Once you get to know the city a little bit there is a lot to do, a lot to see and experience and a lot of fun stuff to do!
