Over het programma

The project

A large number of Ho Chi Minh’s population live in poverty and this project aims at providing support to those who can’t afford to support themselves, by cooking and serving them meals.


This food shop, run by an NGO together with local people, has been helping poor people by providing them affordable lunch for more than three years now. The food shop is self-funded and relies on donations and local people who work to cook and serve the meals. By joining the project, you will have an opportunity to prepare and serve cheap, high-quality and hygienic meals to more than 500 people among which are students, children, old people, workers and disabled people. Everyone who is in need is welcome and nobody is discriminated against.

Fill your heart and the plates of people in need!


The location

Vietnam is not only one of the most populated countries in the world but it is also a dynamically developing one where roads are being renovated, new buildings are being erected and cities are changing. Vietnam has not been influenced as much by Western culture as Thailand and Cambodia and it has a unique identity, which manifests in many ways including its delicious traditional food. Vietnam's fast-growing economy is boosted by tourism which is led by the growing interest for the country's fascinating history and breathtaking sights such as its beaches, the beautiful countryside in the north and the typical rice fields. Having put their painful past behind them, the Vietnamese are proud of their heritage and they embrace life with determination and enthusiasm. The largest city in Vietnam, Ho Chi Minh City, was formerly named Saigon and was the capital of the French colony of Cochinchina. Today it is a bustling city where the new and the ever-present old merge at a dizzying speed.


Dagelijkse activiteiten

The daily schedule on the project starts with breakfast and continues at the food shop where you will assist in the preparation of the food including cooking, cleaning and serving. After you have lunch you will head back to the accommodation and will enjoy your free time in the afternoon.

Vrijetijdsactiviteiten

The highlight of any trip to Vietnam is to learn about their recent history, and experience life as a Vietcon in the Cu Chi tunnels. There are also plenty of beaches and culture to soak in.

Who we are

Global Nomadic empowers positive change by connecting people with projects

Global Nomadic was founded in 2008 with one clear goal – to empower change by connecting people. We believe real change can only come about when people are able to find the right opportunities with the right organisations. Over the past years, we have grown to offer high-quality international internships in a wide range of professional fields, but our aim is still the same; connecting people with projects.

We provide aspiring young professionals with exactly what is needed to set them apart in the very competitive world we live in. We exist to help you further your career through educational international work experience placements, but also to help NGOs around the world carry out their community-building work, by connecting them with you. By working with local NGOs, charities, and communities you will gain excellent experience and valuable skills, aiding you to further your ambitions – whilst making a difference where it’s needed most.

This world is not a perfect place – and we don’t claim to be able to fix it. But what we can do is provide a bridge between you and the people who can. Our mission is to work towards a better and more stable world by connecting people with projects. We believe we work better together than apart. We believe travel and exposure to other cultures, beliefs and ways of life are the best ways to achieve this. We believe you can travel the world and travel your career.

What we do

We provide access to vetted, worthwhile international internships in a wide range of professional fields.

We work in a range of different fields from veterinary medicine and environmental conservation to journalism, public health, business development and education – matching you with reputable, worthwhile organisations around the world. Unlike many other volunteer organisations, we have personally visited and vetted our project partners, to ensure you a safe and worthwhile international experience.

We also choose to only work with partners whose projects contribute to their local community in a sustainable manner. We do not support, nor advocate orphanage tourism or irresponsible wildlife conservation projects. Our aim is to help our project partners focus on their core work by offering an easy way to find committed interns and volunteers to support their daily activities.

Our volunteers

Global Nomadic is a trusted community meeting space connecting people with NGO projects around the world.

We also offer helping you to source and organise the best flights, insurance, visas and all the many other things you will need before you reach your project destinations, including country guides, packing lists and much more! We want to make sure that you have the volunteering time of your life.

Global Nomadic personally visits all volunteer sites to ensure a quality experience for volunteers. You will receive support before, during and after your placement.

2019 at Working at a Local Food Shop

My experience in the food shop is one that I will remember. It was arguably the most tiring thing I’ve ever done. Even if the job was just for half a day, I found it very tiring and labor intensive. I was assigned to food prep and cleaning. It was a tiring job. Despite this, I found myself ...
