From a small shore off Talon-Talon, the Layag-Layag Yellow Boat is now “sailing” into 13 different communities around the Philippines and continues to inspire humanity to make a difference in the lives of other people. From ferrying school kids, living in house stilts in an open sea, to dry land riding yellow colored boats, it’s story has spread worldwide and has extended also in giving free school supplies, conduct medical/dental missions, building school buildings, and giving livelihood opportunities.  The Yellow Boat Fever of the Yellow Boat (known today as the Yellow Boat of Hope Foundation) has spread and contaminated others to do good works.

Recent visitor to Layag-Layag was the National Youth Commission with NYC Chair Chair Leon Flores III, Comm. Earl Pioquinto Saavedra, Oliver Tuazon, ISS Singapore YBH CHAPTER Janine Parel, and basketball player/TV host Chris Tiu. They extended assistance and committed to allocate programs from their office to Yellow Boat.

NYC is the voice and advocate of the youth in our country. It is the lead government agency for participation of our youth in our country’s development and is mandated to promote and protect their physical, moral, spiritual, intellectual and social well-being.

Visit Yellow Boat website at and its Facebok. Be inspired with the yellow fever and the goodness it brings.

Yellow Boat Philosophy: "The great thing a little lamp can do which the big sun cannot do is to give light at night. It shows no one is superior by size but by purpose. If we cannot do great things, we can do small things in a great way. Little things make a big difference to God."
