International 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:



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.


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.


Have another idea of what you would like to do during a GK immersion trip? Get in contact with your local contact and we’ll see what is possible.
