We are an NGO in Vietnam and have a mission to connect people with locals in need in Vietnam.
WHAT WE DO
We place volunteers to assist at social support centers, children homes and disadvantaged schools in Vietnam.
HISTORY, GOALS AND ACHIEVEMENT
Volunteer Vietnam was founded in 2004 by Mr Viet Dang who is a volunteer teacher. Viet believes that volunteering makes a great impact on the lives of people who need help and volunteers themselves.
Our goals are to improve the quality of life for the abandoned children, disabled and homeless people and to run an ethical volunteer program which gives a rewarding experience to everyone who are involved in it.
Since 2004, we have been placing around 1,800 international volunteers in Vietnam. Our operation gives support around 1,000 disadvantages in Vietnam.
WHY WE NEED VOLUNTEERS We operate to support the social support centers, children homes and disadvantages schools in Vietnam. The centers and schools are for abandoned children, disabled and homeless people. Due to the limited funding and resource, they have been still going without enough supplies and manpower. The centers do not have enough care-givers and the schools do not have enough teachers for their program. Volunteers can come and help hands and share knowledge to improve the situation. Volunteers do not need any special skills to volunteer with us. Whatever you could contribute we would appreciate it very much.
by VIET D. from VN(Administrator for this Organization)(October 9, 2019)
I have become a member of the Volunteer Vietnam family. I have returned to volunteer with them 3 times and hope to continue working with them for many years to come. I have volunteered with other organizations and consider VV the best organized group. Also this is the only organization I have seen that offers such a wide variety of daily activities. I would highly recommend volunteering with Volunteer Vietnam.Social Impact: Volunteering emphasizes the importance of helping the disadvantaged people of Danang. I could see that volunteers make a dramatic difference in the lives of the elderly and disabled and enrich their lives by providing physiotherapy, companionship and just the knowledge that other people care about them. Safety: Volunteers live in the volunteer house with several VV team members. The house is very secure, locked at night and the neighborhood around the house is safe to walk around at night. VV team members also give you advice on safety issues. From Leslie Palmer
