Volunteer in Vietnam
If you want to volunteer in Vietnam, we have a number of community-based projects that could be perfect for you. Share your teaching experience skills and improve children’s education in the Teaching Development Placement. Or for those interested in working with both adults and children, we have a Community Volunteering Project, where you will provide extra support to centres helping the elderly, children with HIV and, also, special needs children.
In many societies in Southeast Asia, life can be difficult for the disadvantaged and Vietnam is no exception. Children and adults with disabilities and special needs are often hidden away and lack support to help improve their quality of life. In impoverished communities, teachers do not receive they need to develop as educators. Becoming a volunteer in Vietnam is a great way for experienced volunteers or those with a general interest in working with people to work alongside local educators and staff to support those who need it the most.
When you volunteer in Vietnam you can spend your spare time in Cuc Phuong National Park, one of Vietnam’s most important protected areas. It boasts magnificent limestone mountains, traditional stilt houses of the Muong hill-tribe and is home to some of Asia’s rarest species. For those who want to volunteer in Vietnam with a particular interest in the country’s history, take a trip to the war remnants museum in Ho Chi Minh City. You can also try traditional and delicious Vietnamese cuisine, like beef pho noodle soup.
When you volunteer in Vietnam why not extend your trip and travel further afield by climbing Vietnam’s highest mountain, Mount Fansipan? All you need is the endurance and energy to make it to the top! Or take on the ultimate cycling adventure from Saigon to Angkor, Cambodia, riding along less travelled roads and encountering areas untouched by tourism. Visit Halong Bay in northeast Vietnam, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, with floating fishing villages.
