Orphanage for Street Children

Overall rating: 0 based on 0 reviews

Program Description

As a volunteer with this project, you will work with an orphanage that takes in children from the streets from across Vietnam. There are currently 37 children that range in age from 5 to 14. Volunteers are expected to teach English, assist in renovating the facilities, and helping out with light construction.

Volunteers can also choose, as a secondary role, to assist with producing local handicrafts that fund the orphanage by being sold in local markets.

Volunteers will be housed in a local college campus. Program participants share rooms with other volunteers and are also living closely with local students. This layout facilitates cultural exchange.

You will stay in dorm rooms with 2-4 volunteers in each section. There is internet access nearby and rooms have both fans and showers.

You will be transported to your project site each day.


You will have the chance to teach English

Since English abilities are usually fairly low, volunteers should spend time on building up basics such as simple writing, everyday conversation, and vocabulary.

Participants will be able to choose between teaching the higher level or the lower level. You will eat lunch at the orphanage.

Renovating the orphanage and helping with light construction

Volunteers will assist with whatever the current needs are including decorating inside the orphanage and paintings the outside walls. There are also current plans to build an outside shower and toilet.

Making Local Handicrafts

Volunteers can assist with making jewelry such as pendants, necklaces, and bracelets. You will first learn the method and then create them before traveling to sell your wares at the local market.
