Jomalig Island: Voluntouring

Innocence

Hitting two birds with one stone: two things I love doing the most. I got to travel…and volunteer!

This picture was taken during a volunteer trip (#Project Jomalig: Feed the Kids, Change the World c/o JourneyingJames) that I did with a few travelers in Jomalig Island. To get to this place, we rode a 3-hours van ride + 6-7 hours of boat ride in *drumroll* Pacific Ocean.

You see, Jomalig is so far and hard to reach that only a few knows this place exists…. so far that Jomalig is considered “the most nutritionally depressed municipality in the country”.

It’s always nice to see people smiling despite all the hardships life throws in. It’s inspiring.
