Youth-led Taal Volcano Disaster Response


We will focus our disaster response by providing 3,500 youth with direct support comprising food, water, heavy-duty face masks, hygiene kits and communication access via mobile phones. We will mobilize local youth organizations present in the disaster sites so that together with them we will be able to ensure their well-being.

The eruption of Taal volcano bring untold hardship to affected residents. The youth especially those who are still not gainfully employed are most vulnerable as they have very little means to survive except depend on their parents or neighbors. This situation will worsen in the coming days hence the urgency of our response.


We will provide immediate support to youths that are affected by the Taal volcano eruption. Our support will include food, water and sanitation, hygiene and communication links so that they are able to connect and ask additional assistance from their relatives. We will mobilize youth-led networks and organizations to provide support for this initiative.

Long-Term Impact

The well-being of the youth and their communities assume high priority in disaster response in order for them to improve their situation and contribute to their welfare as well as the welfare of their neighbors. In times like this there is a need to provide support and assistance to each other as well as engage the larger community.
