You will not only assists the shelter staff with the ongoing day-to-day activities, but also have the opportunity to conduct empowerment activities such as livelihood development and skills training. It is beneficial for volunteers to pass on such skills as it promotes independence, female empowerment and eventually prepares the women for life back in society.
Volunteer is a rural town on Leyte in a woman's shelter. Here you can help promote female empowerment to some of the most disadvantaged and abused women in Filipino society. Issues such as domestic abuse, trafficking and abandonment can leave many women in the Philippines feeling isolated and despondent. Many situations are not brought to the attention of authorities; however, the women in the shelter were referred to the court and placed in the program for their safety and to receive rehabilitative services. Volunteers will assist the shelter’s social services staff to help the client develop a support system, strengthen problem-solving and coping skills, and develop livelihood skills. Things like jewelry making skills, or something to drawn an income are needed. Teaching money management, or employment skills may be needed.
