Through our volunteer placements at the project sites, where they share a day in the life experience of local people while working in their particular community, side by side, the volunteer will be rewarded with learning quite a bit about themselves and their role on this planet. Most leave with their life’s compass pointing clear and strong to a new direction in their lives.

We help to create local jobs. Our project has been implemented at many sites in Vietnam. Volunteers come to help local people, they not only bring their knowledge and experience but also the hope, and drive to improve the economy of the local community
We have so many colleagues all over Vietnam, so that we have an extensive network of local knowledge, enabling us to channel the skills of our volunteers to places in which people really need.
Taking part in one of the VVS’s placements, volunteers can learn from the people which they meet and teh environment they live in. Mutual learning and mutual respect is what cultural exchange is all about.
We welcome approaches from potential partners – universities, schools and institutes, sending organizations and individuals; we will arrange the most suitable placements which meet their needs and their willingness. We also highly appreciate contributions from participants; if you want to do volunteer work, just tell us what you expect and we would love to hear from you.
