The Women are your hosts on our basecamps. They’re strong and skilled, shy sometimes, but never fail to make a remote island feel like home. Over the years we’ve trained these women who would otherwise be unemployed for roles ranging from part-time masseuses to top company management.

Culturally it is the men in the family that earn a living, so many of our women have never received livelihood training. However this is a matriarchal society and these women are skilled wives and mothers who are eager to support themselves and care for their family. Filipinas are natural homebuilders. Their caring nature and innate skills are given application in the tourism industry. They’re also disciplinarian mothers, who have no trouble keeping the Lost Boys in place.
