Building & Renovation in Palawan
The Philippines and the island of Palawan is home to a population of amazing people; warm and welcoming, and extremely gracious for what they have! There are, however, a wide range of people living in Palawan and on the many surrounding islands that make up the Philippines who do not have the equipment, expertise and funds to be able to upgrade their home and the community’s facilities.

There is a great demand for improvements in a range of areas in the local villages in Palawan, the local people requiring assistance with residential renovation work, and the upgrading and construction of communal facilities and institutions such as schools, community centres, healthcare centres, hospitals…the list goes on! By supporting this hugely important project in Palawan, volunteers will work alongside local Filipino people, helping to develop community buildings and homes to help promote a brighter future for these vibrant people.

Your Building Placement
By working closely with a wide range of local people, including local builders, contractors, local families, and more…you will gain a truly unique insight into the life of the local people and the on-going restrictions that impact the local community and how these resilient people overcome these issues. As well as working alongside local people and experiencing an enlightening cross-cultural exchange, you will also work with other like-minded volunteers from around the world, supporting each other as you jointly work on these construction and renovations projects together.

Your Role on the Building Project
This fantastic programme supports a range of different projects around Palawan, so the specifics of your placement will be dictated by the needs of the local communities at the time of your visit. From building important community centres for communal use, such as healthcare, childcare and education centres in the disadvantaged communities, to fixing a roof on a storm damaged home, the support you can give as a building and renovation volunteer is endless!

The main construction and renovation activities will include activities consisting of painting, renovating furniture, gardening, laying bricks, plastering walls, erecting fences, plotting and digging foundations of buildings, and much more. This project is available to any budding volunteer who is keen to give something back to the local communities of Palawan, whilst learning much more about the culture and fascinating lives of the local people. Whether you have experience working in construction or other trades, or just want to get involved with something rewarding, this is the ideal opportunity.

Building & Renovation Projects Abroad
Whether you are qualified in the construction trade, or just fancy a new challenge, by lending a helping hand on one of our hugely beneficial and rewarding project in the Philippines, this is the ideal opportunity for you to spend time on your gap year, career break or during your summer holidays to experience a side of Filipino life that many travellers will not get the chance to witness.

Social Life in The Philippines
Whilst you will be kept nice and busy during the days of your projects, you will generally have your evenings and weekends to explore and travel and socialise with your fellow volunteers. The Philippines is still a relatively quiet country in terms of tourism, which means you can still really experience the authentic life of the country. Our in country team will be there to advise you of activities you can join at the evenings and weekends, so that you can make the most out of every moment in the Philippines. 

During your volunteer role you will be staying in a comfortable shared volunteer house, rooms will be shared with between 4 and 8 people, with only single gender occupancy. You will be sharing a bathroom with a shower which will only have cold water, but you will find this very relaxing after a day at work due to the Philippines hot tropical climate. You will have mosquito protection and a fan in the room.

With the environment in mind, all volunteers in Palawan are asked to be sensitive with the resources they use, in regards to water, paper and electricity.

Travel and Adventure in Palawan
Whilst volunteering on this Island you are sure to fall in love with this stunning location, it is a relatively small island that means you will be able to spend your weekends exploring the different areas. The island is long and skinny which means you will never be too far from an idyllic beach; Palawan is still a very quiet Island where you can find your own private beach very easily. 

El Nido, in the North of Palawan is a must visit, you can hire a kayak or join an island hopping tour and visit many of the beautiful islands of the Archipelago, the turquoise water will be some of the clearest you have ever seen. Just north of Palawan is the island of Coron, Coron is often considered one of the best wreck diving locations in the world. There are 11 WWII shipwrecks here to be explored and if you are a diver this should not be missed. The capital of the Island is Puerto Princesa, here you can arrange a boat trip to the UNESCo world heritage site of the underground river National Park, and depending on the time of year, you can also swim with Whale Sharks. For a small island there are so many amazing opportunities in Palawan.

Philippines Philippines Philippines

Where is The Philippines?
The Philippines is an Archipelago of 7,107 Islands in the Western Pacific Ocean, in South East Asia. The Philippines is south of Taiwan, East of Vietnam and Malaysia, and north of Indonesia. There are 3 main geographical divisions of the county; Luzon (in the North), Visayas (in the middle) and Mindanao (in the South). . 

The Philippine’s Climate
The Philippines has a Tropical Rainforest Climate, with high temperatures and high atmospheric humidity throughout most of the year. The summer months between March and May can see very high temperatures, this is followed by a typhoon season from June - October when a lot of rainfall should be expected. Although at specific times the climate can be very diverse across the country, with different regions experiences different patterns in climate. 

Language in The Philippines
The official languages of the Philippines are English and Filipino. English has been an official language since 1935 (when under occupation of the US) and Filipino an official language since 1973, Filipino is made from the native language of Tagalog. Often people in the Philippines will use both Tagalog and English interchangeably in one sentence, resulting in ‘Taglish’. There are 13 different recognised indigenous languages however over  the different regions of The Philippines there are thought to be between 120 & 175 different languages.

The People of The Philippines
The Philippines has one of the largest groups of Christians in Asia, 80% of the population are Roman Catholics, due to  Spanish influences in the country for over 300 years. The people of the Philippines are renowned for their hospitality, being a guest in a Filipino home will see you eating the best food they have to offer and sleeping in their best bed. Filipinos are a very passionate and emotional nation with very close family relations.
The people of The Philippines love to sing at karaoke, so when visiting the country you will be sure to pass a karaoke bar or two (or a hundred).

Travelling in The Philippines
The Philippines is as close to paradise as you can get, the white sandy beaches full of beautiful tropical shells and the pristine clear waters just perfect for snorkelling and diving. It is the perfect country for Island hopping, where you can be on your own private paradise all day long. 

Nothing will prepare you for the first time you see a ‘Jeepney’, one of the main forms of local transport which were originally made from US military jeeps left behind from WWII. They are like nothing you will have seen before and you won’t believe how many people they can squeeze in there.

Exploring the North of Luzon you will experience a very traditional side of the Philippines, very different to the Islands, trek through the thousand year old rice terraces of Banaue, watch the horse and carts on the cobbled streets of Vigan and hire a tour guide to soak up the culture of Sagada where you will learn why there are coffins hanging on the side of a cliff. 

Climbing the country’s tallest peak Mount Apo (2956m), a semi active volcano in Davao will leave you with memories you will never forget. ‘The Chocolate Hills’ are a must see when visiting Bohol, 1500 mounds as far as the eye can see is a truly spectacular site. 

Gap Year and Career Break Travel in The Philippines
The Philippines has the perfect blend of qualities needed to be a perfect gap year destination, white sandy beaches, active volcanos, UNESCO world heritage sites, world class diving and surf spots. Join a gap year project in the Philippines now and you won’t regret it. 

Some people find the concept of paying to volunteer a bit strange. The truth is you don’t actually pay for your volunteer placement. That part is free. Your money goes on all the other benefits around it.
Project Assessment
Before you see a placement on our website, a lot of background work has gone on. We have met with local organisations, vetted in-country staff, conducted rigorous safety assessments and thoroughly evaluated the benefits of the placement, both for you and the community. Only then do you get to see the placement on our website and book your place, safe in the knowledge that it is well-structured and beneficial to the local community.
Help Choosing Your Placement
If you are not sure which placement or country to choose, our hugely informative Travel Advisors are here to help. They are a friendly bunch, have all travelled extensively and can offer lots of advice on choosing the right placement for you. This makes the task of deciding to volunteer in a foreign country much less intimidating, and far more exciting.
Pre-departure Advice
Once you have booked your placement, you will be assigned a dedicated Travel Advisor to offer essential pre-departure advice on vaccinations, visas, kit lists and more. They will also be on call to answer those important last minute questions like “how many pairs of socks do I need?” and “can I take my mobile phone with me?”
Help with Flights and Insurance
We do not include flights and travel insurance in our placement fee. This avoids us having to pass on unnecessary admin charges to you. It also gives you flexibility to plan any further travel before or after your volunteer placement. We do, however, offer lots of help on this through our leading flights and insurance partners, providing you with an easy booking facility and the best prices around.
Airport Pick-Up
Landing in a foreign country for the first time can be daunting. This is why we ensure our in-country staff are there to meet you on arrival. There’s nothing like seeing a friendly face when you walk out of a new airport. And once we have given you a warm welcome, the in-country staff will take you back to your accommodation where you can meet the rest of the team and other volunteers.
Arrival Orientation
We will take you through a local orientation and placement induction on arrival. This will introduce you to any useful amenities and local customs, and it will also show you how to stay safe while volunteering abroad. Our team also have lots of handy travel tips and advice if you are thinking of exploring the country in your spare time.
Accommodation and Food
Accommodation is included in all of our placements. Our volunteer houses, family home-stays and shared residences are comfortable and very sociable places to live while overseas. In some destinations, you may be able to upgrade to alternative accommodation. Just contact us for details. We endeavour to supply food on all of our placements, however in some cases this is not always possible. In many cases you will receive at least 1 meal a day, please see the project summary for further details.  
In-Country Staff
Your safety and enjoyment is extremely important to us. That’s why we have dedicated in-country teams to look after you throughout your placement. Our staff live nearby, can be reached 24-hours a day and will check-in with you throughout your placement to ensure everything is running smoothly, and you are happy in your new environment.
24-Hour Emergency Support
In addition to our in-country staff, you will benefit from our international support network. You will be given emergency contact details before you leave which you can call in the event of a crisis. We are on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Ongoing Project Support
For every volunteer who travels with us, we make a donation to support the work you do in-country. This donation funds future initiatives in the countries and supports the local community, ensuring that those living in disadvantaged communities also have opportunities to develop.
Recruiting More Volunteers
In order to provide a reliable flow of volunteers to our placements overseas, we have to spend a chunk of money on recruiting people like you. Our projects simply wouldn’t survive if we didn’t. It costs to maintain a website, an office, phone lines and a team of dedicated Travel Advisors to answer all your questions!  
Philippines flights Philippines

There are quite a few things to consider and to organise before you travel to your chosen destination to take part in your trip or tour with us.

Flights and Insurance
Flights and insurance are not included on your placement which means you will have to arrange them before you leave. But don't panic, this is simpler than you may think! To make life much easier for you, we offer a free, personal booking service through our chosen flights and insurance partner – StudentUniverse, part of Flight Centre. They will guide you every step of the way.

Please only use this service here and do not go into one of their branches as this can complicate things for us.

Browse or book flights using our search engine. Click here to access it.

Alternatively you can call them on 03300 585032 and mention you are considering or are going away with Changing Worlds and let them do the hard work. They will also be able to provide you with adequate travel insurance.

Travelling after your trip with us? Need a round-the-world ticket? Not a problem... just discuss this with them too.

Why are flights not included?
By not including flights in our trips and tours, it avoids us having to pass on unnecessary admin charges to you. This keeps the cost of your trip lower and also means you have the freedom to search around for the lowest fares and most flexible tickets that fit your travel plans. It also means you can benefit from the expertise of our preferred partner.

What happens when flights and insurance are booked?
When you book any trip with us, you will gain access to our online Travel Centre, personalised for you. In here you will have all the information about your trip and how to plan for it, including the contact details for our in-country team and address you will be staying at.

There are also some forms we need you to complete before you depart, covering areas like your dietary requirements, next-of-kin, medical information, flight arrivals details and more.

Do I really need travel insurance?
We take the safety of our travellers very seriously. You must therefore book adequate travel insurance before you come away with us – you simply won’t be able to participate in your trip or tour if you don’t. Although policies vary, your insurance must include emergency medical expenses, personal accident cover, and repatriation. We also recommend that you book baggage, personal liability and cancellation cover.

Some of the countries where we work will require you to have a visa. We provide guidance for this against the Trip Summary tab so you can check whether your nationality requires it. If a visa is required we will provide a letter of invitation, if the embassy requests this, as well as all the relevant information you will need to complete the visa application process. This information is provided after you book with us. With all visa applications it is important that you have sufficient space available in your passport for the relevant visas required for your travels, and that your passport is valid for at least six months after your planned date of return.

Please note we have no control over the issuing of visas and this is at the embassies discretion. We will help wherever possible though.

At least 6 – 8 weeks before your chosen travel date you should visit your local GP or Nomad Travel Clinic to discuss your vaccination and medication requirements. Your medical professional will be able to advise you of any recommended and required vaccinations for your chosen destination(s).You should inform your doctor of all of your destination countries, and what activities you plan on doing, and in which regions you plan to stay while you are there, as different regions and activities have different health risks in some countries.

Some destination countries will require you to produce a certificate of vaccination in order to enter the country, so be sure that you understand any vaccination requirements for your chosen destination, so that you do not have any issues when passing through customs.

Above all you should make sure you are well prepared for your travels, so that you have the best experience possible whilst overseas!

Speak To Us
If you have any questions or would like some more information, simply contact one of our friendly Travel Advisors. You can give us a call, request a call back or drop us an email and they will be able to answer any questions you might have.

Book Your Place
Once you have decided to travel with us, you can secure your place by paying a small deposit. You will then be able to pay the rest of your placement fee in easy-to-manage instalments.

Welcome Pack
Once we have received your deposit, we will send you a welcome email confirming your booking. This will contain your personal login details for your Travel Centre – an online account full of useful information about your destination, you chosen project and all the things you need to do before you depart.

Personal Information
We will ask you to provide some key information to help us create the best overseas experience for you, such as medical and dietary requirements, any previous language lessons you have done, and what you’re hoping to get out of your time abroad. We may also ask you to complete a police background check.

Flights and Insurance
You will need to book your flights and travel insurance before you leave, and then provide us with these details. We do not include flights and insurance in the project fee (to avoid passing on extra admin costs to you) but our partners will help you find the best options around.

Next you will need to get your visa for your trip. British citizens do not require visas unless they are planning to work before or after the course, in which case a Working Holiday Visa will be required. We will also provide you with lots of information to make obtaining your visa very straightforward.
