Education project in Palawan schools

Education project in Palawan schools

This humanitarian project in Asia consists in teaching local children in the village of Tigman, Aborlan, Palawan to improve their English skills in a local school

This programme will give you an insight into the education system in the Philippines, and specifically in Palawan. You’ll teach English to children in a fun and practical way, and in doing so you’ll be working hand in hand with this beautiful community!

When you register for the project, you can choose whether you want to take part in the programme in nursery schools (3-6 year-olds) or primary schools (7-12 year-olds).

It is also possible to combine the two projects: you will spend 2 hours in the morning in nursery schools and 3 hours in the afternoon in primary schools. This combination will enable you to take part in the project for 5 to 6 hours a day.

Types of assignments in schools:

This programme aims to offer comprehensive assistance, whether by allowing the children to hear English pronunciation from native English speakers or by providing additional support in other academic subjects. The main aim is for you to leave a positive mark on the children’s lives, as well as encouraging multicultural learning and exchange.

Your main roles will be as follows:

  • Teaching English alongside local teachers.
  • Preparing and organising meaningful lessons and learning activities with the local programme coordinator and local teachers.
  • Facilitating learning activities such as fun games, art, songs, dances, grammar and conversation exercises, sport and other related activities.
  • Taking part in other activities organised by the school.
  • Preparing assessment exercises.
  • Grading the assessment exercises
  • Grade monthly exams or assessments.


The teaching programme allows you to organise a variety of activities such as music, songs, games, art, sports, conversation and grammar exercises. You can also teach maths and science subjects.

The school’s pupils are always very curious and enthusiastic about learning more about your family, your country, your culture and your way of life. That’s why we strongly encourage you to bring photos of your home, as the children will really appreciate them!

Palawan is an archipelagic province of the Philippines, located in the country’s largest region of MIMAROPA. Its capital is Puerto Princesa. Renowned as one of the best destinations in the country, Palawan is regularly ranked among the best islands in the world. The island is dotted with fishing villages and fringed by a magnificent blue sea, while its landscapes are characterised by green mountains emerging from the jungle.

Palawan offers a multitude of attractions, including white sandy beaches, crystal clear waters, spectacular marine life, shipwreck sites, breathtaking waterfalls, majestic cliffs, historic sites and delicious local cuisine, all reflecting the rich cultural diversity of the region.

The accommodation is located in the village of Tigman, in the district of Aborlan, a peaceful area on the outskirts of Puerto Princesa. Approximately 72 kilometres from Puerto Princesa, a two-hour drive, and twenty minutes from Aborlan town centre, our centre is ideally located close to the beach. You can relax and swim in your free time or after the programme activities, while admiring the magnificent sunrises and sunsets with the other participants.
