To Do Before the Tour
About the Tour
Projects and Activities
We will visit a local orphanage and deliver fleece blankets. We will also spend time with the children, playing games, painting, and reading. Spreading love and just being with these children who don’t have families is always rewarding.
We have partnered with a non-profit organization called Synergeia Foundation Philippines that works to produce curriculum and excite students to be more serious about school and eventually graduate from high school. We will hold school assemblies and teach this curriculum to the students.
When trying to help the education system, we turned to local teachers and asked for their greatest needs. In many underdeveloped areas the schools do not have desks for the students and many sit on the ground. With the help of the locals we will buy and assemble school desks that will literally lift the children up.
At a government-sponsored community event we will teach locals proper procedures for washing hands, and brushing teeth. This project creates an opportunity to interact with locals as we try to improve their health.
Visit Indigenous Villages
We will work with a group of people that will give us a glimpse of history and culture. They are the Mangyans of Mindoro, the indigenous people of the Philippines. We will visit their villages to run health clinics, build desks, and facilitate education summits. This is always a unique opportunity to help these beautiful, traditional people.
Touring & Recreation
It would be unfortunate to travel all the way to Asia without a little recreation. Throughout the tour we will try our best at Filipino karaoke, play night games with local children, and swim, a lot! Our last full day in the Philippines we will do some recreation in the beautiful Puerto Galera. This area is known for its beautiful snorkeling, parasailing, hiking, and boating.
