Overview: Support local fishermen and farm workers during their daily work in Tigman, Palawan, Philippines

The average salary of the inhabitants of Palawan it not very high. Many of the people living in the village don’t have an adequate education and earn their costs of living with traditional fishing and farming. In this project a close cooperation with the locals takes place, which allows to get a deep insight into the culture and traditions of the Filipinos. This program focuses mainly on the culture exchange and non-profit assistance. This is a unique chance to experience the Philippines in a way that only a few get the chance to.
