VSO Philippines has facilitated thousands of VSO volunteers of various nationalities, in partnership with local organizations and government agencies, who have been working in and with communities in different parts of the country.
The main purpose of the website is to communicate the stories of VSO volunteers and its partners. A separate website was developed to provide an online community for its Returned Volunteers. Significant effort was given to clarify the website strategy coming from preliminary ideas and existing communication practices. WordPress, a popular content management system, and BuddyPress were used to develop the websites. From the page mockups that implemented their branding guidelines, premium themes were customized to also properly showcase contents. A hands-on online training was conducted while concrete suggestions for effective management especially of the online community were shared based on good practices.
