Vietnam Volunteer Trip Is Here!
Our first Vietnam Service Trip is set for Summer 2016.
Impact the Community while Volunteering in Vietnam
Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam is a bustling southern hub, filled with palm trees, motorcyles and smiling faces. Set close to the coast and the Mekong Delta, Ho Chi Minh is a dichotomy. One part modern, metropolitan city, one part under-developed throwback. What grabs your attention immediately is its clean, safe, tropical environment. Then it embraces you with its friendly, open, warm culture.
The food, the history, the landscape and the people will leave you wanting more of this incredible slice of the world. Although this community has made great strides in the last few decades, there is still great poverty. Orphanages are commonplace in Vietnam, which is why we find ourselves volunteering principally to support orphaned children. Explore this magical country in Souitheast Asia, and make a difference in the lives of children in need of love and attention.
Trip Benefits and Cultural Exposure
When you're not engaged in meaningful volunteer work, you'll want to immerse yourself in the rich culture and the breathtaking sights of Vietnam. You'll visit one of the most beautiful beaches in Southeast Asia, learn about the impact of the Vietnam War from a different perspective, explore the delicious cuisine and understand the cultural traditions of these wonderful people.
Volunteer Housing in Vietnam
Ho Chi Minh City is extremely safe and peaceful. It is very developed, yet has maintained its cultural traditions. Strolling along the river, visiting the shopping district or watching the endless stream of motorcyles will captivate you. Our housing facility in Ho Chi Minh City is a large guest house with various bedrooms, each with private bathrooms, a major common area with couches and coffee tables, and a large dining hall and kitchen where our groups eat together. It is set in a quiet part of the city outside of downtown, but just a $5 taxi ride to just about every popular part of the city.
