Bayanihan is a Filipino word that has no translation to English and refers to the spirit of communal unity, work and cooperation to achieve a particular goal. And that’s what I’ve seen and learned in the past three weeks of "voluntourism". No matter where you look you will see them helping one another.
In the day cares, I've learned and had so much fun with extraordinary children who at 3 and 4 years old already know how to count, read, write in English as their second language. I could hardly imagine that going to the Philippines would make me meet the most receptive and loving people ever



My experience in the Philippines it has been so grateful. The family and the teachers treated us as a one more member of it’s community. And we have to say thank you above all to Bonee, that was the person who made this possible. Also he is an excellent person and a fantastic filipino ambassador.


Bonee Jaye replied

Volunteering was a nice experience at first. However they had a little boy in the honestay who would hit me, spit on me, and throw things at me, every Rhine he did this I would tell the host and they would laugh it off making excuses for him. It got so bad that my second to last day there the boy broke something valuable of mine. When I told the host they over reacted and wanted me to pay them for my time there and tried to throw me out at 11pm that night with nowhere to sleep. They made me feel very uncomfortable when that happened and I feared for my safety. They are unprofessional.


Bonee Jaye replied

I already reported this volunteer to the Worldpackers platform and i sent an Incidental Report.

This was the reply of Account-Host Manager ""Thank you very much for your email and for all the detailed information regarding what happened to those volunteers. It's really important to have your point of view regarding the situation, and that's why we feel it's so important to talk to you about it.
We're deeply sorry that these situations occurred to you and to your family, and we strongly disagree with any kind of aggressive, offensive or accusatory behaviour within the platform - from any user.""

I do not intend to write a negative comment regarding this volunteer because I do not want her to be embarrassed in this public platform.
You know your behavior Madam. GOD KNOWS what happened on that night .

Still, I am thankful for visiting my family. Do not worry about your ratings, it does not and will not affect me. BECAUSE OF YOU, I will never accept volunteers again.. This Worldpackers account is closed.. God bless

Perfect for you if you're looking for
