    Can you share the experience you had on the May 1-12 trip to Bohol? If you have testimonials or photos, that would be great.

    I hope you can scale down the project price for young professionals and students to encourage participation – I don’t think your average Filipino, though willing to volunteer, can afford the project fee of 1,000 USD for a 12 day “vacation”.
