Youth Build: Habitat for Humanity

Youth Build: Habitat for Humanity

On 27th April2012, YouthBUILD will bring together thousands of young volunteers to build homes, communities and hope across the Asia-Pacific region. Volunteers and supporters will help create a world where everyone has a decent place to live, by building homes and raising awareness and support through their social and digital networks.

Habitat Youth BUILD Philippines will see 2,000 volunteers build 140 homes in Barangay Tanza, Navotas City, in Metro Manila. Currently, families displaced by Typhoon Pedring and the various monsoon rains are still living in evacuation centers and in transitional shelters. Hygiene is poor and there are inadequate sanitation facilities. Volunteers will also help with cleaning up the area and building community centers. There will be a special opportunity to meet and assist local children.

It is the YouthBuild season again!
Are you excited to be part of this year’s Youth Build? 🙂
Volunteer. Donate. Advocate.

Nccp_logoPeace greetings from the National Council of Churches in the Philippines!

The NCCP is one with the indigenous peoples in the struggles against development aggression, ecological destruction, and militarization. We walk with them in the path of righteousness and justice towards life in all its fullness for all.

As part of this ministry, the NCCP is facilitating an immersion program in Mangyan and Igorot communities. In this light we are inviting TWO YOUNG PEOPLE FROM THE UMC to participate in this immersion program (one young people in each event). The immersion program will be held on the following dates:

April 12-15, 2013 at Mangyan Day Festival in Occidental Mindoro

April 22-25, 2013 at Cordillera Day Festival in North Luzon.

We recommend the three minimum requirements for your selection of participants: (1) willingness to participate in the entire duration of the program including participants’ orientation; (2) willingness to submit a reflection paper; (3) willingness to volunteer for the indigenous peoples program of the NCCP. Your endorsement will be highly appreciated.

Participants’ orientation will be held on April 5, 2013 (Friday) at the NCCP Office, from 1:00P.M. to 3:00P.M.
