  • Accommodations

    Accommodations

    Volunteers in the Philippines stay with local host families. ELI truly believes that this is the best way to fully immerse in another culture and get the most from an international experience. All families are carefully screened and are well-respected members of the community with at least one family member who speaks English. Participants will have either a private or shared bedroom with secure storage (volunteer must provide own padlock). Bathrooms are shared with the host family. Volunteers will be provided with breakfast and dinner daily.

  • Start Dates

    Start Dates

    The start dates for the Philippines programs are very flexible. We ask that participants arriving in December not arrive between December 23 and January 3 in order to allow our coordinator and staff to spend the holidays with their families.  There are lots of holidays throughout the year, be sure to check out the 2018 Holiday Calendar.

  • Notes & Useful Links

    Travel Insurance

    Travel insurance is not included in the program fee. We prefer to let participants decide what kind of coverage they need.

 

It's been 5 days since the earthquake of 7.8 magnitude hit Nepal. I was finally able to have a long conversation with Anish, our coordinator. His home, which is located near Bhaktapur, was destroyed by the quake. He has moved into a small house nearby. They do not sleep in the house. No one is sleeping indoors these days. Aftershocks continue to rock the region. A large one had struck a few hours before we spoke. No one in our Nepal family was injured in the quake, but the mental and financial scars will live on.
