The World Endeavors Volunteer in Vietnam Program takes place in and around Ho Chi Minh City. Located on the South China Sea, Vietnam is a country rich with history, welcoming people, and stunning landscapes. After years spent ruled as a French colony, this unique nation has developed its independence over the second half of the twentieth century, allowing the culture to flourish.
Yet despite this growth, there are still issues affecting the Vietnamese people. Changing traditions and roles within communities in Vietnam have resulted in fewer care resources for some of this country’s most vulnerable citizens. World Endeavors volunteers in Vietnam contribute to the further development of the country as they work alongside local organizations focused on eldercare, childcare, special education, and teaching projects within local communities.
