Travel to Vietnam with Globe Aware and explore one
of Vietnam's most picturesque towns, Hoi An, an UNESCO
World Heritage Site. Amid the distinctly preserved
assortment of Chinese, Japanese, and French architecture
remains the devastation of poverty with many peasants
left dwelling in sub-par conditions. Volunteers will
focus their time on improving living conditions of
homes, schools, and public markets by refurbishing
and rebuilding structures. In addition, volunteers
will spend time teaching English and playing games
with young students, as well as distributing books
for a Portable Mobile Library Project. During free
time, volunteers can stroll the colonial streets of
Hoi An, discover charming bridges, and visit Champa
ruins nearby. Accommodations are provided in a simple
hotel just outside of Hoi An with hot water, flushing
toilets, and limited electricity. Let Vietnamese history
and culture come alive as you lend a hand to make
a better life for the people of Hoi An.
