Province of Cavite, Philippines

The RYS began its 1st global project in the Philippines in 1986 and has completed numerous regional, national and local project projects since that time. Currently efforts are being made to set up an active RYS club and this project was a part of that effort. This projects aim was focused on supporting and highlighting a week dedicated to honoring the United Nations. Participants were chosen from the select University of the Philippines and worked with enthusiasm and commitment.


The program was highlighted with a variety of interreligious programs including joining pilgrims in the Allure Festival. The community was deeply moved with the heart and spirit of the volunteers who worked on the local school. Our cooperation became a substantial model of the peace building spirit of reconciliation so needed in this nation.
 This was the second RYS project in New Zealand and the 1 st international program. This project drew much support from Australia and pulled in participants from a wide variety of nations and religious traditions. Networking with organizations was a key to the programs success as Habitat for Humanity, the local civic leaders and the Moreau Youth Movement worked to model the pattern of cooperative living so critical in building a culture of everlasting peace.
