Volunteers

Posted by booboo on 8/1/2011 at 15:58

My partner and myself will be heading to Vietnam in 2 months and will be staying there for a 2 months or possibly more. We would very much like to volunteer and are happy to either pay reasonable costs or to sort out our own accomodation etc. We both have an i-to-i certificate in TEFL. However we are happy to be involved in any useful project and we are finding it difficult to find one that isn't just based on paying a huge fee. We are unfortunately don't have the funds for this on this trip although we would be more than happy to donate to a worthwhile organisation once we are working again. Any suggestions ????

Hi Booboo,

A friend of mine volunteered in HCMC at the Christina Noble Children's Foundation - you can find out more here: http://www.cncf.org/en/home/index.php. I visited her during her stay, she said it was one of the most rewarding experiences of her life and was very enthusiastic about the work CNCF does.

I seem to remember you weren't required to pay any fees but the minimum stay required is 3 months.

I hope you find what you're looking for.

Take care,

FSH
