For intrepid travelers with a desire to ‘do good’, this volunteering travel program promises to deliver. Based in action-packed Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam, this will be an experience of a life time! The two-week program (which can be extended if you desire) spends weekdays helping others, while weekends are spent exploring this cultural and scenic wonderland!  Participants can choose from a variety of volunteering activities that all share the same mission – to help enrich the lives of others. Placements could include working with abandoned children with HIV to assisting the elderly or working in a pre-school, to name just a few. 

Goals of this Project:

  • Provide essential care and support to vulnerable people in Ho Chi Minh
  • Improve the future prospects of those disadvantaged in society
  • Give society’s most vulnerable quality care, compassion and a sense of hope
  • Enable inter-cultural exchange which benefits both locals and international volunteers alike.

Typical day

Volunteers are given a customized volunteering activity plan that also includes daily cultural workshops, a local cooking demonstration and a dinner with a local family. Optional weekend excursions include trips to must-see destinations in this fantastic country. The first excursion is to the picturesque Mekong Delta, a vast maze of rivers and islands, home to floating markets, Khmer pagodas and villages surrounded by rice paddies. Mui Ne is the second –  a traditional fishing village set on a gorgeous beach, a location that is fast becoming a popular tourist destination.

Free-time activities

Volunteers on this important program are fortunate enough to be based in vibrant Ho Chi Minh City. 

Having risen from the ashes of a turbulent past this former French colony, still known colloquially as Sai Gon, is storming into the future with panache. Visitors will be swept up in the excitement and awed by the evident extremes: modern vs traditional, past vs future and luxury vs simplicity. Ho Chi Minh has so much to offer the international traveller.
