Ten Foundations

Volunteer with Us

Be Apart of Something Amazing. Volunteer with us!

The world is not a fair place to live.

We live in a world where the balance of wealth is completely out of sync. More and more people in developing countries are becoming poorer and Poorer making it impossible for them to find a way out of this poverty themselves.

Almost half the population of the Philippines lives on less than $2 a day, with around a quarter of the country under the international poverty line of $1.25 a day. This economic reality has contributed to a high number of children being pushed to work to help support their families - sometimes in dangerous or potentially abusive or exploitative situations. 

It is estimated that 1.5 million children are abandoned and live on the streets of the Philippines. We believe it is basic human right that every child, where ever they live should have the shelter and safety of a place to call home. We are helping women and children break the cycle of poverty, join us and help change the lives of vulnerable women and children.

How you can help.

We have met some amazing people both here at home and in the Philippines and we have been supported by some great businesses and schools across Northern Ireland. 

Volunteer with us and help us build a future for vulnerable children and their families in the Philippines.

It is a privilege to have been nominated as one of Queen's University Belfast, Student's Union charities from 2018-2019. We are taking 2 groups of 30 students to our Bayanhina Village. We have built a small compound, comprising of a work area for our Livelihood Programme, and Education Pod for teaching and visitor accommodation. We are offering students an opportunity to visit our village and work in the areas listed below.

-Education

-Medicine

-Sustainable Architecture & Engineering

-Sustainable Development

-Social Enterprise

The cost of the trip per student is £1,000, this includes flights, food and accommodation (cost may increase due to flight prices). We also ask that each student fundraise an additional £500+ for Ten Foundations. Do not worry we have lots of great fundraising ideas to help! So, if you are interested in helping change the lives of some of the poorest people in the world, we would love you to join our 2019 team.

Spaces are limited so if you would like to volunteer with us, please register your interest as soon as possible. A small deposit will secure your place.
