Our mission is to connect people with locals in need in Vietnam
Why Combine Travel & Volunteering?
Traveling and volunteering are important activities that can have a profound impact on personal growth, as well as on the communities and environments we visit. When we travel, we expose ourselves to new cultures, perspectives, and ways of life that challenge our assumptions and broaden our understanding of the world. By volunteering, we can also contribute to the well-being of local communities, support environmental initiatives, and develop new skills that can be applied to our personal and professional lives. Moreover, traveling and volunteering can foster personal development, such as enhancing interpersonal communication, building self-confidence, and increasing cultural competence. By combining the two activities, we can create meaningful travel experiences that not only benefit ourselves but also have a positive impact on the world around us. Whether we volunteer for a few hours, a few weeks, or a few months, traveling and volunteering can be transformative experiences that promote personal growth, cultural exchange, and global citizenship.
The Volunteer work ranges from English teaching to working with physiotherapy patients at the local social support center, socializing through outdoor activities and sports, and assisting at the “school of possibilities, working with children and adults who suffer from disabilities.
