Music in the Philippines

Overall the volunteer program in the Philippines was a very meaningful and enriching experience. It is a relatively new program having just restarted in recent months after being shut down by the typhoon so there were a few snags in the beginning but everything was dealt with and resolved quickly. When I first got there I found out that my volunteer placement was only going to be three days a week in the mornings, I was hoping to be more involved in volunteer work than that and after talking with the in-country staff other opportunities were found. The homestay family was very welcoming and made sure that I felt comfortable. Overall I was very happy with my experience in the Philippines and would definitely consider going back.
