▼How is “international volunteering”?
Everybody who is interested in international volunteering can wonder like these.
“How is international volunteering in fact?”
“What is a “Work Camp?”
These movies might answer your questions. They were all recorder by our volunteers during their project. They wanted to share what their life looked like while they were on workcamp.
▼Voice from volunteer
We accept a lot of volunteers from other countries every year. They come all the way to Vietnam and work different places around Vietnam. After projects, they go back to their own countries with special feelings or some kinds of progress.
In this movie, two volunteers, one from Spain and the other is from Australia, are talking about their project and lives there. They work as teachers in a local university and live in a local village. What they are feeling and thinking based on their own experiences might give you a new perspective.

▼Buoc Village, Mai Chau
Volunteers went to Buoc Village in order to build toilets for local people. Still 20% of the families living there do not have toilets. They also met the villagers to experience their culture and understand more their situation. The work camp is created for helping local people. Volunteers can learn how local life is through spending all their time with local people. If you want to learn more about the project (with other volunteers) go check this post.
