About Program

The mountainous northern region of Vietnam, south west of Hanoi, is home to Vietnam’s third largest ethic minority group the Muong people. The Muong are most closely related to the ethnic Vietnamese, however culturally and socially more similar to Thai people. The Muong rely on crop cultivation (mostly wet rice), animal husbandry and fishing to sustain their lives. The village of Pa Van in Thanh Hoa province is home to approximately 400 people, with 26 children attending the elementary school from grades 1-5 and 30 younger children attending the kindergarten.

The school and kindergarten is in disrepair. With the assistance of local building experts, we will renovate the school and kindergarten for the children of the surrounding villages. Following the community project work we discover the stunning national parks that surround Mai Chau, the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Halong Bay and the vibrant cities of Hanoi, Hue, Hoi An and Ho Chi Minh City.
