Volunteering for a month at the disabled kids center in Hanoi was an amazing experience that I will never forget. The community was super friendly with valuable volunteers who helped each other a lot. As for the propertyt, it was not that clean, we had rats twice during my stay :), not to mention ants. In general Dung was helpful with me when it came to pick ups and drop offs, that I m grateful. I just wish things were more organised here. Like providing basic information upon arrival, getting food expenses without asking for it all the time. But all in all, great volunteers, good experience!
I was NOT expecting much from this program (given previous reviews about lack of organization, etc.) however, I really enjoyed the students & teaching aspect of the program (although it was VERY unorganized) and there is sometimes an assistant to help. Classes are not consistent either-different groups every day. Difficult to build relationship with kids. The major downside to this program is its management. I think accommodation was decent but food wasn't good. Also schedule issues (last minute classes and a general lack of respect). WE WEREN"T ALLOWED TO STAY OUT LATE EVEN ON WEEKENDS.
I had a very nice experience staying at Dung's family, he and his family are very friendly and kind :)
I did the volunteering program outside Hanoi and had different classes from kindergarden to teenagers which I really like it because I felt I had the complete experience of teaching and being creative in each group class. Also there were more volunteers from different countries which whom you can share on your free time. Generally, there is a good atmosphere in the house and the program! I def recomment it.
I spent four months at Dung‘s family and I really liked it! Dung is really nice and he took good care of me during my whole stay.
What I like a lot about the project is that you have many options. I spent six weeks in Halong Bay, teaching at a language center and the rest of the time in Hanoi with Dung and his family, and there are even more options than these.
I have to admit that the classes in Hanoi weren’t as organized as expected them to be, but this way I learned to improvise and to be flexible. I really enjoyed staying with Dung and his family and I would definitely recommend it!
Fui un mes para ayudar con las redes sociales y estoy pensando de quedarme más tiempo aquí en Vietnam. Una experiencia inolvidable, he conocido a gente súper maja de todo el mundo. Y Dung es muy flexible y siempre dispuesto a hacer lo que esté en su mano para facilitar la combinación viaje + voluntariado. En breve me voy de ruta a otros países del sureste asiático, y sin duda volveré!
