Join this very popular program. Help local nutrition and public health advocates by volunteering with ELI Abroad and a local government office fighting hunger and malnutrition in Tacloban City on Leyte Island in the Visayas region of the Philippines. Volunteers can work with neighborhood nutrition committees directly and organize educational programs for parents, implement community and school vegetable gardens, and conduct weight surveys of children in different areas.
Because of the specific nature of this placement, volunteers should have knowledge of nutrition and an interest in public health. Past volunteers raved about their experience, saying it enhanced their understanding of the challenges faced by developing nations and gave them a uniquely satisfying feeling of being able to help those in need.
As an ELI Abroad volunteer, you'll live with a host family near your placement. It's an amazing opportunity to become a part of this mutli-cultural society, which is a fusion of indigenous Austronesian, Hispanic, Chinese, Islamic, and American influences. Filipinos are well known for being some of the friendliest and most hospitable people on the planet.
