Your experience will be packed full of activities at the placement and around the area, enabling you to learn about another culture while helping and immersing yourself in the Vietnamese way of life.

You will work alongside other volunteers assisting with lessons for the children and organizing activities like arts and crafts or playing sports. You will also spend time helping on a painting and refurbishment project, creating a lasting impact at the placement.

Yes, I recommend this program


The best experience of my life! The staff were so supportive and friendly, they made the experience so enjoyable. I loved the mix of activities between culture and the school, allowing both a fun and rewarding experience that allowed me to fully embrace such a new and different culture. For example, we visited places such as Hoan Kiem Lake, Museum of Ethnology and the night market, not forgetting the weekend trip to HaLong Bay. We had so much support for our work in the school, with our project coordinators providing materials and helping plan the funday. The language barrier held some difficulties but the projects abroad team were great, they provided translators so each class had someone who could communicate better with the children. I have already planned my next trip with Projects Abroad!

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
To fully embrace the whole experience, especially the food as you will get so much more out of your trip.
