Samal Island is a small island that can be reached from Davao by a 15-20 minute ferry ride. Samal is rapidly developing, full of breathtaking views and home to some of the best resorts in this area!

On March 21, 2018 Global Impact’s Freedom!Philippines team met with the city’s Vice Mayor Orly A. Amit, to discuss possible collaborative initiatives.
