Global Xchange Team 107 ready to fly!

The Butterfly Effect Project aims to mobilize the youth to promote and support volunteering through Global Xchange. This project seeks to advance the knowledge and awareness of the youth, by encouraging them to participate in meaningful activities to serve as a generative force in human resource development committed to the values of volunteerism, social transformation, equity and diversity.

In about 40 hours from now, 9 young Filipino young people of Global Xchange Team 107 will be on a plane to begin their trip to London, UK.

Meet Global Xchange Team 107!

Global Xchange, which is an initiative set up by Volunteer Service Overseas (VSO) in partnership with the British Council and VSO Bahaginan, is a volunteer exchange program which gives young people from the Philippines and UK a chance to work together to develop and share valuable skills to make a practical contribution where it is needed in local communities.

Set to work as a team for three months in London, United Kingdom and another three months in Cebu, Philippines, these young FIlipino volunteers will live with local families and work with local community organizations to address the pressing issues on disability, secure livelihood, and environment.
