Bayanihan (pronounced as) is a Filipino  taken from word “Bayan” referring to a town or community. The whole term Bayanihan refers to a spirit of communal unity or effort to achieve a particular objective. The origin of term Bayanihan can be traced from a common tradition  in the Philippine towns where community members volunteer to help a family move to a new place. The process involves literally carrying the house to its new location.This is done by putting bamboo poles forming a strong frame to lift the stilts from the ground and carrying the whole house with the men positioned at the ends of each pole.
