During late 2018 and early 2019, we travelled to Vietnam on a holiday and were completely moved by the country’s history and kindness of the people. The poverty and helplessness of the people around us had opened our eyes and motivated us to do what we could to help. We tried to give back where we could on our trip, but knew it was not enough and had to come back to contribute more. Our experience has made us appreciate our lives more, and feel very grateful and blessed for everything that we have.
International Volunteer HQ (IVHQ) is an organisation that believes in a future where any traveller from anywhere around the world can be empowered to make a meaningful difference in the community they are visiting, and they take pride in making this happen.
With the help of IVHQ, we will be volunteering in Vietnam for two weeks in July, on their Kindergarten Project. We will be supporting local teachers with the day to day operations of the kindergarten and help provide children aged 3 to 5 years old with a head-start in their education within a fun and supportive environment.
We would love for our family and friends to join us on this journey and would greatly appreciate the help, to fundraise and make a difference wherever possible. Proceeds from this fundraiser will be going towards donations for the children - books, clothes, shoes, school supplies, toys, games, stationery and food etc.
Through this we hope to create awareness among our family and friends so that they too can contribute to someone’s life, one step at a time.
