Welcome to the Hands On Volunteer Vacations (HOVV) blog site, where we will post stories and updates on the project.

HOVV is a program of Hands On Manila Foundation, Inc., which is an international affiliate of HandsOn Network of Points of Light Institute.

Pilot HOVV projects are categorized in three main areas: environment, heritage, and livelihood. Initial project sites include Mt. Halcon Forest Museum in Oriental Mindoro; Baclayon and Pamalican in Bohol; Boracay and the mangrove plantation in Aklan; as well as heritage and environment sites in Laguna and Batangas.

Hands On Manila works closely with the Philippine Department of Tourism (DOT) for this project and is partnering with the Philippine Tour Operators Association (PHILTOA), and the National Association of Independent Travel Agencies (NAITAS), both of whom will provide logistical support for the vacation aspect of the program.

HOVV offers flexible volunteering wherein activities may be customized based on the availability and preference of the volunteer. There are also scheduled activities that may need a specific number of volunteers on a particular duration of time. Those interested to volunteer under the HOVV program may email accomplished HOVV Application form_email with a copy of passport and other information to Please confirm your volunteer participation at least two weeks before your scheduled trip or months earlier.
