VFV placements always put volunteers in positions when they have to adapt to, often challenging, conditions. A different culture, a different language, not to mention 35 degrees humidity everyday are more than enough to cope with for most volunteers, but some have even greater obstacles to overcome.

Frequently meeting and providing training for our host families is something that we at Volunteer for the Visayans hold with high regards. Not only does such frequent contact enable us to sustain a healthy and appreciative relationship with our homestay families, but also offers us the opportunity to provide training that our homestay mothers might not necessarily be exposed to should they not be involved in our programs.
