Our Partner Community
Since the start of the organization in 2001, we have implemented many community assisted projects in depressed rural areas where employment is scarce and government initiated livelihood and support are few and far between:
Through the partnership for Work Camp Projects where we and the people in the community envision to develop a better quality of life, LOOB has established a strong and enduring relationship with these communities so that Japanese and Filipino volunteers can work and learn hand in hand, in fullfiling their potentials to becoman instrument of change in our society.
