“I had a very good experience working in Hanoi , Vietnam, with disabled children. I had the opportunity, in two months, to meet extraordinary people and to get to know the country and the Vietnamese culture.
My job was 4 hours daily from Monday to Friday. During the weekends I had time to travel or rest. Being in touch with children and working with them was magnificent. I learned a lot from them and I was involved in my work. At first it is hard to adapt but everything has its time and within a week I had confidence with children.
Volunteering is a way to get involved in a local project in which you end up receiving as much as you give. It is also a way to travel from a more local point ov view . I was with a local NGO where I could count on the help of the staff at all times. It has been an experience I will not forget“.
