Some examples of local volunteer projects

Livestock pay it forward Program

Visit a local village and hand out piglets to farmers in need. Learn about how the pay it forward program works and how it transforms the life of a farmer in need and their family.  

Wheelchair Program

Many disabled children in Vietnam have never experienced the freedom a wheelchair can bring. Help handover brand new wheelchairs to the children and help them to be fitted in their new chairs.  

Welfare Centre

Visit a local welfare centre which is home to over 170 of Da Nang’s homeless and infirm. Help hand out care packages and fresh fruit. This small gesture makes a world of difference to those who have so little.  

Children’s Orphanage

Visit young children in a local Da Nang orphanage and hand out gifts of toys and books. There may also be an opportunity to take the children on an outing. (B).
