Global Volunteers, a non-profit organization, has been giving short-term volunteers the chance to provide essential services to local people on service programs since 1984. Volunteering under the direction of local leaders, team members form groundwork for international peace via common, global understanding. Our goal is to sustain authentic development projects with the host community and give volunteers wide opportunities to help.
Since 1984, over 30,000 people have volunteered with Global Volunteers in 34 different countries. Visit our website to learn more about how to join this movement and become a Global Volunteer!

I got the feeling that James was kind of a placer holder for his wife. Several people told me that she had been a better administrator of the program and the sort of lapses our team experienced would not have happened on her watch. I hope that she will return as the GV leader for this project when she finishes her training in NZ. James is certainly capable and well-meaning, but his priorities lie elsewhere in my impressions.

the program should find a different high school to volunteer in. i know there is another Nguyen Binh Kiem hi school in Hanoi that teachers disabled students along with regular students. It is a public school. This would be a perfect fit for GV.
