Work with a local government office that aims to reduce the number of malnourished children in Tacloban City. The office monitors malnourished children throughout Tacloban City. 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. Volunteers with this program should have knowledge of nutrition.
The Philippines has been described as one of the world's best-kept secrets: this nation of 7,000 tropical islands offers pristine white beaches, turquoise waters, ancient rice terraces, virgin rainforests, volcanoes and some of the friendliest people in Asia. Explore this magical place and its diverse culture through an ELI volunteer placement on the historic island of Leyte.
All ELI Programs are set up on a completely individual basis according to the interests and skills of each participant and the current needs of the local organizations we work with.
Participants in the ELI programs experience the famous hospitality of the Philippines through staying with a local host family.
