Volunteer in the Philippines

Experience life on the island of Cebu while supporting disadvantaged communities

Volunteer in the Philippines with Projects Abroad and use your time and energy to support people in need. We run several different projects in the country, which are designed to address the needs of the local community.


You can help to construct vital sanitation facilities for disadvantaged families, or provide a helping hand for teachers in overcrowded classrooms. Promoting early childhood development is one of our core goals at local kindergartens. Or you could spend time on our pioneering Physiotherapy or Public Health placements, providing specialised care to locals who cannot afford these services.


You’ll be working on the mainland island of Cebu, famous for its diving opportunities and gorgeous beaches. We are based in two locations, San Remigio and Bogo City. While volunteering in the Philippines you’ll receive 24/7 staff support.


The Philippines has some breathtaking scenery for you to enjoy. Apart from beach-based activities, there are wildlife sanctuaries, ancient monuments, and bustling markets to discover. And don’t miss out on some of the delicious local cuisine. Make the most of your time in this beautiful country!
