Volunteers in the Vietnam Children’s program have the opportunity to work in one of our placements in Northern and Southern Vietnam – these include orphanages, disability centres, villages and street children shelters. Many children are parentless or their families are unable to care for them. The role of the volunteer is provide love, attention, education and life skills for these children, and to support the local staff at these placements. Volunteers are needed to assist in caring for children, teaching basic English, arts and crafts, music, sports and other life skills where possible.
There is also need for volunteers who have specialized skills in physiotherapy, occupational therapy, nursing or other professions with qualifications that could support children with mental and physical disabilities.
