What can volunteerism do? From Inspiration to Impact

For 63 days, over ONE MILLION VOLUNTEERS in the recently concluded 2014 Bayani Challenge experienced a most amazing journey!
 
Volunteers left comfort to confront the most pressing issue that our nation and our world is facing today: transforming the apathy and "walang pakialam" mentality to a culture of walang iwanan!  The volunteers
 built houses, refurbished schools, built fishing boats, cared for the environment, fed thousands of kids and danced to the same choreography for the now famous Bayani Challenge song! We were truly one!

Thank you volunteers for showing us that it takes BAYANIHAN to journey from Araw ng KAGITINGAN to Araw ng KALAYAAN!
 
With faith in the Almighty we look to the 2015 Bayani Challenge. 
 
 
Same dates   : April 9 to June 12;
 
But with an
ALL-NEW CHALLENGE :
 
Let us engage 20,000 BARANGAYS to feed the hungry, provide land for the landless, build homes, care for the environment, fix schools and unleash the potential of the poor to be our partners in driving true inclusive growth. Be a part of building:

"BARANGAY WALANG IWANAN!" in 2015!

Our prayer is for the Lord to grant us the courage to continue to find ways to end poverty for 5 Million poorest families by 2024.  
 


"I have the strength for everything through Him who empowers me"
- Philippians 4:13
