Develop experience, Experience development

 

Main theme: Global Citizenship

  • Through various promotional, incentive and advisory activities, young people, and nowadays also older people, are made aware of all kinds of possibilities of being abroad and getting involved in development. On the one hand by partner organizations in the Netherlands and abroad, and on the other hand by JoHo support centers in developing countries.
  • Annually, more than 1,000 projects are provided with manpower, funding and other resources through JoHo partners abroad. Because of these projects tens of thousand of children receive education, childcare and teaching materials. Hundreds of disadvantaged young people get the chance to start a study, setup their own business or access free (health) insurances. Hundreds of aid workers are supported when realizing their activities.

JoHo Support Centers

Main themes: Choice Improvement and Sustainable Tourism

  • Through preparation, awareness and advisory activities, backpackers and travelers are encouraged to act fair during their stay abroad. Besides that, they get inspired to use -where possible- organizations that also have proven to be "sustainable" and "world supporting'

  • Meanwhile, more than 1 million travelers and backpackers use the information activities of JoHo through JoHo support centers

Smokey Projects

Main themes: Talent Development & Community Based Tourism

The Smokey Tours

  • Smokey Tours are not just tours. They offer experience, believing that deep experience equals deep insight. The tours are unique and honest; a testimony of changing times and our global interconnectedness. All tours are guided by well-trained local Smokey Tours tour leaders, from underprivileged communities to running eye-opening tours around Metro Manila
  • All tour leaders are part of the JoHo Insurance for Talent Programme which assures them and their families of Health Insurances.
  • Smokey Tours hopes to bring societal change in our communities, either small or on a much bigger scale. It is a huge goal, and they work in small steps. It is not easy, and sometimes things go smoothly, sometimes not at all.

The Smokey Health Center 

  • Providing positive and meaningful impacts on those living in the slums have been the goal since the inception of Smokey Tours. We have distributed relief goods and given qualitative training on health and disaster preparedness that will surely help the slum community cope with the daily challenges that they face. Cooperation and coordination with non-government organizations, people’s organizations and concerned individuals have been vital in successfully addressing these short to medium term social issues as we race to reach our goal.

The Smokey Art & Work Center

  • We believe that mental illness is nothing more than an illness, nothing more, nothing less. That it is not a mental disability if the person affected can function in society provided the illness, like all other illnesses, is properly managed. 
  • In a society that is increasingly becoming insensitive to the plight of people with mental illness, we have taken the cudgels to promote the advocacy of eliminating all shame and stigma and creating a support group for artists with mental illness and their caregivers – Boxless Society.  

The Smokey Library

 

JoHo World School Bank

Main theme: Knowledge Sharing

  • JoHo World School Bank materials: a multimedia initiative facilitating pupils and students to donate their school materials, extracts and excercises (written in English or Spanish). These materials are made available to pupils and students in developing countries, both online and (partly) in print.

  • A community website for those who actively want to work for a world where everyone, independent of origin, can lead a good life. Anyone can contribute to the community, by creating a profile (resume), and by blogging about activities and experiences that contribute to global citizenship.

  • The main goal of this multimedia platform, for and by 'supporters', is to exchange knowledge internationally and to make already invented wheels more available

  • JoHo WorldSupporter Magazine operates as a multimedia initiative with WorldSupporter blogs, songs, stories, recipies, advice, statements, photos and videos about global citizenship at work, on holiday, at school or in leisure time.

 

Millennium DO

Main theme: Global Citizenship & Integration

  • "Millennium Do" encourages and facilitates young people to inspire others, through their own global citizenship, to actively contribute as well. Apart from that, Millennium Do stimulates talent development of young people.

  • The program is focused on the millennium development goals and practical ways to achieve these goals.

  • The program ran between 2011-2015, with a preceding similar program (called "JoHo Xplore") between 2005-2009.

The Goals

  • Smokey Tours aims to improve the living conditions in Baseco’s almost unreachable areas.
  • Providing positive and meaningful impacts on those living in the slums have been our goal since the inception of Smokey Tours. We have distributed relief goods and given qualitative training on talent development, health and disaster preparedness that will surely help the slum community cope with the daily challenges that they face. Cooperation and coordination with non-government organizations, people’s organizations and concerned individuals have been vital in successfully addressing these short to medium term social issues as we race to reach our goals.
 

The Projects & Initiatives

  • Due to COVID-19 and safety concerns, we have discontinued our tours and our projects. Our freelance tourleaders are taken care of, with allowances so they have some funds until they find other work. 
  • In 2020, we have started working together with Project Propel more closely, to exchange skills and talents. Smokey Tours has helped with our tourleaders to start the Talent Development in the slum community that Project Propel supports.
  • Another project with Project Propel is the start of the Floating gardens in area of mangroves of the PRCMO in Baseco as livelihood of 10 families with the goal of Nutrition. Due to COVID-19, the project is on hold. 
  • Furthermore, Business/families in charge of water filter system have been selected in partnership with Project Propel and through ocular assessment with the following criteria: Each resident was hand selected due to their community reach, accessibility, and proximity to water hose/source. 10 Families and their communities can have life long clean water, which will decrease diseases and the families can drink cheaply more clean water.
  • In 2019, after we have done a Baseline study in Baseco. We have focussed our Energy on Talent Development. We want to help people help themselves, to gain confidence and to be able to provide for their families. We give Talent Development Programs in Baseco, with the goal that people can find a paid job.
  • In 2019 with donations we have funded our Baseco Recycle Worker Project, where we have trained 6 Baseco Recycle workers and their communities. After 6 months, they were able to function by themselves, with the tools needed, saved and partly funded, like a Tribike or a cart to pick up Garbage.
  • In 2019 we have started after the fire disaster to give loans to community members, with coaching and money, they are able to rebuild their businesses and to provide for themselves. 

History

  • In 2018 we continued our Efforts in the Community in Health Projects, we support a group of 45 pregnant ladies. With folic acid and with skills training regarding healthy food, living and breast feeding. 
  • In 2017 we opened a Health Center - for the people of - Aplaya in the barangay Baseco, Manila. Aplaya is the part of Baseco that hardly receives any help from NGO’s because of its remote and isolated location. The Health Center has been a place where individuals and/or families can go to check on their physical and mental well being, for medical consultation and treatment and/or to obtain medicines - if necessary. The goal is to improve the conditions of the people of Baseco by treating diseases or illnesses and providing them with clean water, so they will be able to avoid water borne diseases. The local Health Workers are visiting the community to check and help the weak and sick people.

Why Insurances through JoHo

Why Insurances through JoHo

  • Specialized: in emigration, work, internships, study and travel abroad.

  • Service: JoHo offers multiple travel insurances by multiple companies. Thanks to JoHo's extensive experience, it can offer support in case of problems with insurers, as well as advice and fast and personal handling.

  • Safe: JoHo is recognized as a trustworthy intermediary for insurances.

  • Social: by purchasing an insurance through JoHo you provide a talented student in The Philippines with health insurance

Why Should You Take Out A Travel Insurance?

  • The chance of getting injured or ill is generally higher than when you would have stayed at home. The medical care you will need can be very expensive, even more so if you are treated in a private clinic.

  • If you have to fly back because of family circumstances, the flights might be more expensive than your original flight because you have to fly on short notice.

  • You might have to deal with the damage, loss or theft of your luggage.

  • In case of emergency it can be difficult to figure out what to do. A good travel insurance will have an assistance team on standby for you 24/7 and will be able to tell you what steps to take.      

Why Should You Specifically Take Out A Travel Insurance For A Long Trip Abroad?

  • Often regular travel or health insurances only cover trips for a maximum number of days (for example 60, 90 or 180 days). 

  • Depending on your home country, your health insurance might not offer any coverage for treatment abroad.

  • During a long trip you might consider specific activities, like paid work or volunteering. Regular travel insurances often don’t cover these kind of activities. The same goes for adventurous/ hazardous sports like skydiving, scubadiving and bungee jumping.

More on why to use JoHo

  • JoHo is one of the few organisations  where you can directly purchase a comprehensive range of foreign insurances from a variety of insurers. As with our other products and services, we believe that you should be able to choose between the best, the most cost effective and the most specialised insurance.

  • JoHo offers various possibilities from combining insurances to assisting in transferring from one insurer to another.

  • When you purchase an insurance policy through JoHo, you will not pay more than if you had purchased it directly from the insurer. Sometimes (through special collective agreements) you will even pay less.

  • JoHo offers support with problems that may arise with the insurer. Sometimes disagreement with claims, cancellation notice or insurance premiums can occur. In this situation it helps if you have the assistance of an organisation who has an established relationship with the insurer.
