We are the community network connecting people who want to give hands of help in volunteering for education to improve the living standard of local people. We identify the needs and oﬀer our placements for volunteers to join our network and contribute their time to support local communities.
We believe that education is the essential element in improving the quality of life for poor and disadvantaged people, especially the ones in ethnic communities. A better job skill, better knowledge will bring them a better opportunity in careers and life. Therefore, by providing non-formal education with the support of volunteers, we would like create a chance for poor and disadvantaged people, thus reaching the ultimate goal of a sustainable life in their own hands in the future.
We focus on providing informal education for local communities, especially for poor and disadvantaged people in far-away ethnic communities. We teach and train them knowledge and job skills necessary for a better life. We try to improve the education facilities, such as school buildings, local centers and community houses, in order to create a better place and study environment. We also try to help in developing local small businesses and careers by providing skills, tools and real support in finding partnerships. Another goal of V.E.O., besides helping local people, is to give international volunteers a chance to experience Vietnam and get an insight into the country. We oﬀer a variety of placements for volunteers – our projects are available throughout the country. When joining V.E.O., volunteers will be able to see and experience Vietnam’s beautiful nature, friendly people and authentic folk culture.
Our mission is to promote sustainable livings by providing education support with the help of international volunteers. Our target groups are poor, disadvantaged and disabled people in local, ethnic communities in Vietnam. For our projects we select villagers and underprivileged people; we aim to educate and train them in a hospitable manner and with the support of international volunteers. By performing daily tasks, the local people will learn new approaches and enhance their skills. Besides that, the volunteers will have a chance to immerse themselves in the local community and interact with people in need for a better life.
