About Hands on Manila
Formally established in August 2001, Hands On Manila (HOM) brings to the Philippines an innovative and alternative model of volunteer service. The flexibility model of volunteer service allows for volunteering to be integrated into daily schedules even for busy individuals.
Introduced and developed by the Hands On Network (formerly, City Cares), the model has been successful in many American cities. Hands On Network is an innovative alliance of volunteer organizations founded in 1992 with the mission of encouraging and effectively channeling the volunteer impulse.
Hands On Manila is the first Hands On Network affiliate in the Asia Pacific region. Hands On Manila is committed to empowering individuals to act as citizens and realize their ability to contribute to the community in meaningful ways. By providing a variety of flexible tangible volunteer opportunities, HOM seeks to enhance citizen capacity to effectively serve the community.
Based on the premise that everyone can serve, HOM’s mission is to mobilize people to address the critical social, educational and environmental needs of the Metro Manila area and in some provinces through volunteer action. HOM believes that VOLUNTEER ACTION is a powerful force for creating change. Through our network of other non-profit and community based organizations, HOM offers flexible, diverse service opportunities for individuals, as well as customized service projects for civic and corporate groups.
HOM’s goal is not only to provide http://assignmenthelponline.co.uk/assignment-writing-services a roadblock-free path to service; it is also to provide meaningful experiences that clearly make a difference. By doing so, Hands On Manila encourages an even greater sense of responsibility, caring and awareness in those who come to know the life-changing power of getting involved. Those in need as well as those volunteering are able to gain a sense of fulfillment and inclusion, as we all work together to unite and improve our community.
We envision a community where people contribute their time, talent, and resource for sustainable development.
To provide a wide range of flexible, innovative, and community-driven volunteer opportunities; and to mobilize capable volunteers for programs and activities that contribute to sustainable development
