GK Philippines Programs

GK Australia aims to both support the community development work in the Philippines, as well as develop the template to help marginalised communities in Australia and the region.

How does GK Australia supports the work overseas:

 

IMMERSION TRIPS

Since 2003, Australia have been continuing to send groups over to the Philippines to visit, volunteer and help build in GK communities. Every immersion trip is a unique and memorable experience for everyone – not only for the families of the communities, but also each and every volunteer.

GREAT ADVENTURE TOUR

The Great Adventure Tour is a 2-week trip where a volunteer group can experience and learn about the GK program first-hand. The participants will get to learn and experience the culture and beauty of the Philippines, stay in a GK community with the families, help to build part of the community and learn more about the other parts of the GK program such as Education or Livelihood.

TASTE TOURS

A Taste Tour is a short 5-day tour where participants can visit a few GK sites across the duration and learn about the GK program and get to see first-hand how the families benefit from the support of GK.
