Volunteers in Asia–I volunteered with VIA back in 1995.  We had to really rough it back then, VN was still underdeveloped.   Anyways, it’s a good way to live in Viet Nam for the first time.   Plus, you get to visit Japan for a week before landing in your VN post.   They have summer and year-long programs.

Room to Read-This organization builds libraries and schools all over VN.

-Deer Park Monastery- A program built by Thich Nhat Hahn that provides spiritual support.

YOLA– A new social learning platform that teaches English to VN students on line.

East Meets West Foundation– They do everything from building schools, medical interventions, and clean water initiatives.

I’m sure there are more groups doing work, please feel free to add via the comments section.

Anything sound interesting?  Get in touch and volunteer!
