PG / VSO Volunteers Survey

Dear All,

As you may already know, PG has been in negotiations with the VSO (Volunteering Services Overseas) organisation for a good while now. We can finally confirm that we are partnering with their Diaspora programme. This means we are joining forces to bring those of Filipino origin and resident in the UK, to the Philippines in order to volunteer and share their skills and experiences.

The Philippines is in need of assistance in many areas, these might include business development projects, building projects or even social projects. This opportunity can enable Filipinos in the UK to go back home, reconnect with their culture and ultimately give something back.

Volunteering is an ideal way to build the kind of life experiences that you can use professionally as well as those that will stay with you personally forever.

In order for us to get started in providing access to this kind of opportunity for the community we need to gauge the level of interest, skills and capacity of you, the Filipino community. We will be doing this with a survey designed with you in mind.

Those who take part will automatically be entered into a prize draw for a voucher which entitles you to £20 off a dining experience at our favourite restaurant, Guanabana, in Camden!
