About

TEACHING ENGLISH AND PROMOTING SUSTAINABLE TOURISM (NO FEE)

We wish to tackle the unemployment rate in Vietnam, and one of the ways we can do this is by providing language education at an affordable cost. Especially in Northern Vietnam, in the regions of Hanoi and Ha Giang (a province on the border with China where we have implemented our first Responsible Tourism Project). Language education is unfortunately very expensive in Vietnam and so it is not something that most people have the luxury of being able to afford. We provide skills training in English and tourism (when applicable) so that the unemployed or employed students with a low salary can have better job opportunities after they graduate from university.

* Classes for students:
- They are from 18-27 years old and eager to learn. They include 2 kind of students:
1: Disadvantaged students whom we are training to be our tour guides for Responsible Tourism.
2: Students in universities who pay a small fee.

* Class for kids:
- They are from 7 - 14 years old. The classes will be located around Hanoi. Vietnamese volunteers will take you to these classes by bus, motorbike or walking.

* Class for disabled students:
- They are from 12-24 years old and they all have disabilities.

Our volunteers tasks include :

*Creating materials and lesson plans for English classes.
*Going with them to the places where they will be your tour guide so that they can learn practical skills.
*Helping out in outdoor and indoor activities with the students.
* Observing classes.
* Helping them to design products.
