Volunteer in an Orphanage in Vietnam

Volunteers have the opportunity to work with orphans, street children, and mentally/physically disabled children in a variety of different orphanages, schools, daycare and social support centres.

Orphanage Project

Many children are parentless, or have been abandoned as their parents cannot afford to provide for them. These kids need love, attention, education and life skills to ensure they have a future free from poverty. Volunteers are needed to assist by caring for babies, teaching basic English, arts ‘n’ crafts, music, sports, and healthcare. Volunteers will also have a chance to assist with physiotherapy at the disabled orphanages.

Your contribution is invaluable to the children on the program. The work is incredibly rewarding. You can make a difference for these children and help to brighten their future. As a volunteer in Vietnam you can provide love, affection, education and support to orphaned children. You will help to improve their living facilities allowing them to be self sufficient and providing a safe and secure environment in which they flourish.

Physical Therapy Project

There is a great need for volunteers who can use any specialized skills in physical therapy, occupational therapy, nursing or other professions with qualifications that could support children with mental or physical disabilities.

Even if you don't have a related qualification, we still welcome you to join this program - there's always a need for volunteers to provide interaction and engagement for these kids to help them reach their full potential and build relationships.
