Community Development Project with VVCD: Making a Difference in Small Communities

At VVCD, we focus on manageable community projects that significantly impact small, rural communities in areas like Ha Tinh Province and Lao Cai Province. Our volunteers can expect diverse experiences tailored to their interests and expertise, including projects in Mai Chau, Hoa Binh.

Activities may involve:
•    Educating locals about using fresh water and installing wells for clean water access.
•    Setting up small libraries as community hubs and encouraging book donations.
•    Repainting classrooms, building public bathrooms or toilets.
•    Training local staff and community members.
•    Conducting research, data collection, and report writing.
•    Supporting self-help groups in vulnerable areas.
•    Administrative tasks like proofreading, editing, and website maintenance.
•    Marketing through website updates, photo uploads, newsletter editing, and event organization.
•    Raising awareness on various issues.
•    Teaching English to local staff and community members.

Please note, volunteers for this program should commit to a minimum of 4 weeks, be at least 20 years old, and have some field experience (university studies or relevant work experience suffice). Good English proficiency, a laptop for work, and basic hand tools for minor tasks are also required.
