Smokey Tours was started in 2010 by three well traveled and proud Filipino social entrepeneurs, eager to show the beauty of the Philippines and its people. In 2012 they met Juliette Kwee, a missionary with Bahay at Yaman ni San Martin de Porres, who came up with the idea in 2011 to help the local community of Sitio Damayan by sharing their experiences and shwoing their dignity, faith, resilience and strength in dealing with abject poverty; hence the Smokey Mountain Tour was born. The Smokey Mountain Tour had been discontinued since June 2014. Taking place of the Smokey Mountain Tour is the Slum Tour around the area near Smokey Mountain.
Apo Island products
The women of Apo island make yogamats to earn a proper living. They show their skill in using the traditional ways of weaving and proudly present their products. Any additional profit they make by selling the mattresses in Holland is used by the Apo community for e.g. medical care or renewable energy.
WorldActivity works with Artland printing services because the quality of the materials is good. But aside from that we appreciate that Artland offers jobs to young adults from slum area's. Apart from a job they get the chance to go to school and finish their education. After some months or years of schooling and working they are ready to find their own way (or with a little help) into a job elsewhere.
