Education is fundamental to human progress, enabling individuals and communities to acquire skills and knowledge essential for improving the quality of life. But for some of minority ethnic children the basic education is limited. The education program will be a solution for this matter. The projects can focus on traditional and new education methods for children and youth at the local school where lack of English native speakers is and need volunteers help. Volunteering on this project, V.E.O would like to bring a hand of help from volunteers to the minority ethnic community in this project, and then bring them the good opportunity to integrate into the community to have a better life.
VOLUNTARY ACTIVITIES
Joining in the project and doing volunteer work to support minority ethnic children in Mai Chau, volunteers will provide some English, arts, music lesson, games for the children. A basic English lesson will be provided by volunteers to children in flexible time with 4 – 6 hours per day. Another time you may wish to enjoy Mai Chau and trekking surroundings. You will have time to experience with the way of life, learning from local people and then give them ideas that can improve their life skills, and bring them more opportunity for the better life in their ethnic minority families.

LEISURE ACTIVITIES

It wasn't my idea to go to some crazy nightclub in the middle of nowhere. I just wanted to stay home and cuddle with this tiny ad:
