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.

Sponsorship Program

For $300 USD a year (or $25 USD a month) sponsors can help provide the basic necessities to children from disadvantaged families and supply them with access to education, food, social support, and medical care, while restoring their sense of dignity and hope for success in the future.


VFV offers a variety of volunteer placements in children’s projects so volunteers should find it easy to find one that matches their interests and abilities

Community Program

The center not only acts as VFV’s office and headquarters but also runs as a local community center that offers a broad base of empowerment programs and social welfare services to a diverse collection of community demographics. Part of VFV’s unique success is owed partially to the combination of services it provides for various members of the local community.
