Discover the wonders of the East as a remote intern, exploring Vietnamese culture, modern and traditional.


Remote Internships in Vietnam

Vietnam is located in Southeast Asia and has developed remarkably over the past 30 years. Economic and political reforms have spurred rapid economic growth, transforming what was one of the world’s poorest nations into a lower-middle-income country. However, like many other countries in the region, life for Vietnamese’s disadvantaged population still can be difficult.

Vietnam has focussed greatly on green energy growth and has promoted reforms to protect itself against its high vulnerability to climate change. There is also a great focus on improving education for the most disadvantaged of the population and eradicating poverty.

Our remote internship projects in Vietnam work with local social enterprises and NGOs that help the development of the country, its communities and its climate change agenda.
