Harnessing the Full Power of Facebook

and not just using it as a distraction from our work!

Facebook is now more popular than ever. With over 500 million users, the social media website has successfully institutionalized itself as part of the social norm, completely altering the way in which 1 in 13 people on the planet (and most probably every single Filipino) lead their daily lives.

For us at Volunteer for the Visayans, Facebook is by all means our most powerful tool, offering us a multitude of different quick and easy ways to provide up-to-the-second updates regarding our various ongoing community based projects, not to mention an affordable and easy way for us to promote our volunteer abroad program and to give appropriate shout outs to our fantastic supporters all around the world!

Help Support the Dumpsite Learning Center

The squalor of the Tacloban City dump is probably one of the last places on Earth which anyone would want to spend their Saturday afternoons.

However, for individuals volunteering in the Philippines with VFV, many have chosen to sacrifice their weekends off so that they can venture deep into the City Dump to augment support outside of their regular project commitment to the Volunteer for the Visayans Dumpsite Project.
