    TriboCo. Kultura Kamp, a different kind of travel and tour with immersive experience. 
    • EMBARK: Kultura Kamps are about immersing oneself in the lives and culture of the indigenous groups of the Philippines. It is about experiencing their culture and way of life with your own five senses.
    • EMBRACE. Through immersion, a sense of kinship with our indigenous brothers and sisters allows one to understand, accept, and develop deep respect for their culture and way of life...thus called the value of Kapatiran.
    • EMPOWER. In the end, through the short camps, Kultura Kamp hopes to empower our indigenous people to embrace their own identity as they become teachers of their own culture. They hope also to empower the participants to have a more open disposition allowing them to be able to understand and respect those who have a different way of life from their own. And all this, is ultimately, geared towards the fight against cultural discrimination.


    Everyone can contribute their time, talent, and skills through volunteerism. Volunteering is a great way to spend your summer, and may be one of the most valuable experiences of your life. Aside from the obvious feel-good factor from giving your time to a worthy cause, volunteers themselves also benefit from their volunteer activities, according to the 2000 National Survey of Giving, Volunteering and Participating (NSGVP). Volunteer activities helped them with their interpersonal skills, such as understanding people better, motivating others, and dealing with difficult situations.

    Spend your summer in service. Become a volunteer teacher at A-HA! Learning Center, a free tutoring center for street kids living in Makati cemeteries and surrounding areas.

    Bayani Challenge is an annual test of courage, endurance and love for country. Teams go on an adventure to plant hope on ground by building communities and fostering friendships. From April 9 (Day of Valor / Araw ng Kagitingan) to June 12 (Independence Day / Araw ng Kalayaan), together with other volunteers and partners, you can bring concrete hope and help end poverty for the province, municipality, and barangay closest to your heart. So, it's time to plan for the best summer ever! So many locations to choose from and so many new families and hearts to meet!  Register now! Visit for registration info.

    KRIS Library volunteers keep the organization alive. Through book-reading activities, story-telling gatherings, and various activities, they may have the ability to reach out to children and change their lives. If you would like to contribute your time to help these children prepare for a better tomorrow, volunteer HERE.

    Volunteerism is the backbone of Servant Leadership at Caritas Manila. For inquiries please call 564-0205 or email /
