Make a Difference with Volunteer for the Visayans

Founded in 2004, VFV is dedicated to sustainable development projects in the areas of child welfare, community development, education, and public health, through our Volunteer, Sponsorship, and Community programs. VFV's main community center and head office is located in Tacloban City, Philippines.

Sponsor A Child

Our Child Sponsorship program provides various social welfare services to primary and secondary school children from low-income families. Each sponsored child receives financial support to cover their educational costs, daily nutritional feedings, monthly groceries, annual health check ups, and access to many other resources and seasonal activities. You can sponsor a child for just $25 USD a month!

Volunteer With Us

We offer a range of volunteer placements across a variety of fields and interest areas, so we can cater to nearly any international volunteer's hopes and dreams of volunteering abroad! From rural health clinics to orphanages to nutrition projects, our placements are tried and true, as are our homestays who accommodate dozens of volunteers each year. All volunteers have access to extensive orientation and 24/7 staff support!

Community Program

Part of what makes VFV special is our well-rounded dedication to the communities we serve, especially the communities in which our three distinct community centers are located. Through various community programs and projects, we continue to expand our impact and assistance to families in need. From building homes to distributing school supplies to our annual medical mission, we are dedicated to making a difference!
