For all those loving souls who wish to do something worthy for the underprivileged and disabled children of Vietnam, this is your chance to serve them in the most meaningful manner by volunteering with the kids. Volunteering Solutions, in coordination with other NGOs, Daycare Centers, Kindergarten Schools etc., aims to provide adequate love and care to the little ones so that they can live a better life and have a stable future.
Volunteers will be placed in and around the city of Hanoi. One of the popular placement centers is the Friendship Village - that was set up in the year 1992 by George Mizo. The Friendship Village was set up for children living with the effects of dioxins from the herbicide “Agent Orange”. Most of the kids residing here have disabilities like autism, cerebral-palsy, down-syndrome, physical deformity, and severe mental disability. Being a volunteer for this project will be challenging, but equally satisfying. It'll teach you lessons of life that you can cherish forever.
Apart from the Friendship Village, volunteers are also placed Khanh Tam Center that's run by an NGO, Xuan Dinh Kindergarten, and other places. No matter where you get placed, your experience will be worth sharing. Your small step and actions of love can make huge differences in the lives of these kids.
