In which we see ripples of change ...
As this year’s 16th Philippine Hobie Challenge comes to a close, we look into the people that make the race amazing and fulfilling at the same time. Our whole mantra transcends to everyone that wants to help through their passions. The sailors of this challenge are no different.
Waves For Water’s philosophy is simple. We encourage people to look at humanitarianism as lifestyle driven. By following your heart, doing the things you love, and helping along the way, you end up organically fusing passion with purpose. It’s a major shift in the way we normally think about aid work—not only does it create a dynamic experience, it becomes a more socially conscious way of life.
Supported by our belief in developing and empowering local networks, we implement our programs specifically with the help of local volunteers and community leaders. Working through these networks enables us to truly connect with the communities, establishing a sense of trust and friendship so we can provide a high level of individual attention to each of our projects.
Sailing around the Philippines is always fun. As conscious sailors, outreach was always a big part of the Hobie Challenge. Our passions are a platform for us to do good. Connecting to the local champions of a location makes a big impact because what we provide is then plugged-in to their daily lives benefitting their health and overall well-being.
