Since November 2000, Rise Above Foundation have been working as volunteers in Cebu City, Philippines. Their team is striving to help improve the quality of life for the poor and underprivileged by means of providing educational opportunities, livelihood training, and health and hygiene programs. They connect and cooperate with volunteers from several countries and help facilitate their work and accommodations in Cebu. They establish contact with schools and institutions for students in our internship program, and organize “dental missions” to treat the poor in “Free Clinics”. Scandinavian (and recently British) dentists and dental hygienists participate in their projects to provide treatment as well as oral education for poor children and adolescents.

Their vision is to give people a chance to lead better lives through education and training. You can help make that dream a reality through financial contributions or to work as a volunteer. TOGETHER WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
