Community Service Projects

 

PROJECT MISSION OF OUR COMMUNITY SERVICE PROJECTS

DSC_0926

  • Build construction community service projects that are in need for one of the remote Mekong Delta communities (i.e. a restroom of 4 toilettes, a bridge, a road, a small house)
  • The project aims to provide international student volunteers an opportunity to do community service in a property-stricken community of Ben Tre, where they will learn the value of hard work, experience living in a third-world country, and challenge themselves to make a difference that will have a lasting impact.
  • The duration of the program requires 12 days, in which the first five days, the student volunteers will work on the community project and during the last seven days of the program, they will travel to sightsee some of the beautiful places in the south region of Vietnam.
