The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
JWOC develops projects in Southeast Asia that reduce poverty levels, increase educational and economic opportunities, and empower recipients and supporters, inspiring ongoing social change.
We work to promote societal, economic and improved health opportunities through access to education. JWOC builds capacity and increases self-reliance, helping struggling communities to face daily challenges and better their own future.
Based on the principle of 'Learning Today, Leading Tomorrow’, our focus is education, including opportunities at local universities, JWOC’s Community Center and in the villages surrounding Siem Reap, Cambodia. Over the years, we have learned that focusing on education is where we can make the greatest difference in helping those struggling to better their future and become leaders in their community.
