Program Details

– In Ho Chi Minh we have a low priced scheme for students wishing to learn English from volunteers. This first project consists of small classes from 5-12 students per class. We are also running a charitable project which is also based in Ho Chi Minh. The Charity project is a full teaching package including life skills advise, career counseling, accommodation, food, education for some of ethnics students. We outreach to poor regions of Vietnam to acquire young and willing Vietnamese people who are looking to make a difference in their hometown such as English teachers, tourguides, receptionists.... Thanks to the first low-priced classes we are able to provide this charity and provide accommodation and food for them as they learn.
- To every volunteer who devotes your time with us. We are also happy to award you with Volunteer certificate.
