Tour Details

“Volunteer teaching in Tavan, Sapa” aims to bring the primary school students in Ta Van village a better education with new books, notebooks, etc. In Ta Van primary school, there are over 100 students from remote villages, so they have to undertake a long-distance walk to get to school every day. Besides, physical and mental deficiencies also become one of main difficulties while learning at school.

The project is to help directly the children from the distant villages so that they can have decent living and studying conditions. In addition to the good learning environment, children have also been learning life skills, having precious experiences and even cultural exchanges with international volunteers from all over the world. 

Participating in the project, you won’t only become a volunteer helping children in the small village in Sapa but also contribute to building a new school and establishing education foundation for the ethnic minorities. At the same time, it is a chance for you to experience something wonderful in Sapa – a City of Fog – a line between the Earth and the Heaven.
