THEME/TYPE OF PROJECT: Organic Farming AIMS OF THE PROJECT: Farming is a new yet full of potential project at Leaf pagoda besides taking care of children and renovation works. There are two kinds of farming that can be carried out here: organic vegetable farming & herbal farming. The project aims at making use of uncultivated land in the pagoda to grow vegetables which are important sources of food for all the monks, children, and people living here. Usually, almost all of their food is donated, and they only buy tofu for the meals. Having an organic vegetable garden, they can provide themselves with healthier and more diverse foods; more importantly, this garden lessens their food expense. In addition to a stable, cheap, and healthy food supply, the project attempts to accommodate people here with herbals or traditional medicine. Currently, there is a clinic providing free traditional treatment and medication for people in the pagoda and in the neighboring areas who cannot afford health care fee at hospitals. Moreover, in cooperation with Red Cross Organization, the pagoda usually organizes trips to rural provinces to cure diseases for local people. Herbal farming, therefore, is not only helpful for people inside the pagoda but also for the community. Shortly put, this project is implemented to beautify the pagoda landscape, make good use of land, and supply food and medicine for about 80 people inside the pagoda as well as the local community. PROJECT’S ACTIVITIES: Leaf Pagoda (originally known as Huyen Trang Pagoda) was built in 1996 in Nha Be district, HCMC. Some of the children here come from poor families who cannot afford to bring them up, the others have lost their parents. There are only a few monks living here and some local volunteers to help every day, so the volunteers can come during the daytime to take care of the children. The volunteers can play games, help them colour the pictures, or take them out for a walk. The volunteers can also help do the farming, the gardening, construction work or the cleaning. - Number of small children: 10 – 20 - Age: 20 months to 8 years old COMMUNITY CONTEXT: The main source of funding comes from followers of Buddhism and local sponsors, which is mostly spent on charity. Thus, the pagoda is poorly constructed and equipped; and the budget for food and other implements is very limited. Leaf pagoda was built in 1996 in Nha Be, Ho Chi Minh City. The pagoda was originally named Huyen Trang yet the fact that its roofs linked together with coconut leaves gave it a more informal name - Chua La or Leaf Pagoda. Today, in this peaceful and quiet space in the outskirts of HCM city, the pagoda brings up orphan children, take care of old people, and organizes charity trips across the country. VOLUNTEER’S TASKS: This project requires a lot of time and continuous effort, thus, it cannot be fully accomplished at once. In fact, one group will be in charge of one step of the process only and the next groups to come will continue the work. Gradually, with the contribution of different groups around the world, farming project can be successfully implemented. This project includes 3 phases with following activities: Preparation: a) Cleaning and evening out the ground, b) Fertilizing c) Making beds, d) Building water purification system ii. Cultivation: e) Planting f) Watering and weeding regularly, g) Harvesting. iii. Improvement: h) Developing draining and irrigation system, i) Expanding the area under crop j) Building a tool-shed

THEME/TYPE OF PROJECT: Medical internship program AIMS OF THE PROJECT: The aim of the program is to to provide skilled medical professionals and students the chance to experience a new culture and working environment while still learning and developing their specialized medical knowledge at the same time. Volunteers get the chance to gain a greater understanding of differences between medical systems in developed and developing countries. PROJECT’S ACTIVITIES: Known officially as Centre of Orthopedics & Rehabilitation for Disabled Children (CORDC) but it also offers treatment for adults too. The LTK Physio Centre project began in 1979 as a joint humane project between ‘Terre des Hommes’ (Germany) and the Ministry of Labour, Invalids & Social Affairs of Vietnam, with the aim of providing rehabilitation for all paralysed children in South Vietnam. The centre opened in 1983, and in conjunction with many humane societies across the world has provided free health care to thousands of Vietnamese children. It provides rehabilitation treatment to adults & children who are usually referred here by their doctor or other hospitals. The center has three main purposes: Rehabilitation: treatments for children aged 5 – 15 years diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy, Congenital Motor Deformity amongst other conditions. Training: rehabilitative training and courses on taking care of a disabled child as well as other courses for local medical staff, students and family of disabled children. Research: ongoing research in fields such as Congenital Motor System deformity and treatments, Physiotherapy and the care of disabled children. Most of the centre functions similar to a hospital, mainly focusing on orthopedics, with various rooms for different treatments including a daycare room for disabled children where they can receive physiotherapy, occupational therapy and speech therapy. The daycare has 5 teachers looking after 32 children, but not all attend everyday. Most of the children suffer from cerebral palsy, down’s syndrome, congenital motor system deformity and other disabilities; from learning and cultural activities at the daycare, children can recover some motor function of the body and increase their awareness of the world around them. COMMUNITY CONTEXT: LTK Hospital is located in Tan Binh District, in the west of Ho Chi Minh City. It is easily reached on the bus and total travel time is around one hour, including both bus & walking. It can be more or less depending on traffic. It is in a densely populated area so all necessary amenities are close by. INTERN’S TASKS: Interns will be placed with a local Doctor and/or Nurse who will guide them to different tasks and activities at the placement. As an intern, you will not be expected or allowed to partake in serious procedures. However, depending on level of experience, participants may observe operations, provide assistance in basic procedures and visit patients – before and after surgery as well as any other tasks offered or required by the local staff. While participants are always encouraged by local staff to see and learn as much as possible, they are also very interested to gain a better understanding of medical work in your country and in particular, learn about the similarities and differences. This is an interesting type of specialized cultural exchange where both participants and local staff can learn a lot from each other and develop themselves through greater knowledge and understanding. The timetable will be given on arrival with volunteers working 5 days a week (Saturday and Sunday off). Working hours from 8:30am to 11:30am, and again from 2:00pm to 5:00pm with a lunch break and time to rest in between. Volunteers will work 20 hours per week on average.

During peak season, the maximum can go up to 7 or 9 volunteers per room, in 5 bunk beds (9 beds in total). Western toilets, showers. and ceiling fans are available. hot water is also available. The house has TV, PC, free WIFI, fridges, cooking facilities, and a common room & terrace. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are provided at the dorm. Food is typical Vietnamese meal, prepared by a local cook. The main types of food will be rice, meat, fish, and vegetables. For vegetarians, the choice is usually limited to rice, bread, vegetables, egg, and tofu. During the working day, volunteers will stay at the project site for lunch and for taking a lunch-break.

THEME/TYPE OF PROJECT: Environment AIMS OF THE PROJECT: The aim of this project is to reforest unproductive land within Can Gio Biosphere Reserve that has little remaining original vegetation on it. Existing trees will remain but new native trees will be planted. The aim is to regenerate local area, bring back a forest, and restore biodiversity to the area. PROJECT’S ACTIVITIES: The site is an important wildlife sanctuary in Vietnam as it is characterized by a wetland biosystem dominated by mangrove and many rare species. Today, it has become one of the most extensive sites of rehabilitated mangroves in the world. One of the main advantages of the biosphere reserve is that it provides the opportunity to work on environmental protection on a continuum of habitats, ranging from the sea to the boundary of Ho Chi Minh City, the biggest industrial city in Vietnam. The mangrove forest is regarded as the “green lungs” of the city. COMMUNITY CONTEXT: UNESCO’s international biosphere reserve in Ho Chi Minh City, one of the most important of wetland conservation site of the country. It covers 75,740 hectares and is dominated by mangroves, including both salt water and brackish water species. And it has a high biodiversity with more than 200 species of fauna and 52 species of flora. VOLUNTEER’S TASKS: Volunteers will be guided and supervised by the centre staff. The exact nature of the work volunteers will be doing varies all the time and there is no such thing as a ’typical’ day. However there are certain jobs that will be volunteer’s responsibility such as: • Regenerate a degraded area with native trees • Rebuild a natural forest by planting trees suitable to the area • Restore biodiversity to the immediate area by providing a habitat for native animals • Regenerate and secure topsoil • Take action against climate change – trees absorb carbon dioxide, a key greenhouse gas, from our atmosphere and store the carbon while releasing oxygen. Forests act as carbon sinks and one tree can store between 500kg – 1 tonne of CO2 over its lifetime • Participate with the communities in environmental, health, educational activities. • Researching and working at a vegetal laboratory together with local experts and students. • Provide improvements to the livelihoods of the local communities. • Collecting trash every Thursday. • Wild anical care (monkey, otter, pig, crocodile). • Fundraising encouragement Dress Code: Working for biosphere reserve center is different with other work. The dress code should be both casual and formal sometimes. Be aware that you can get dirty easily at work! So down here are the tips for clothers: Bring ‘wash-and-wear’ quick drying items only. Sensible shoes are a must. Please ensure that they are comfortable and fully enclosed. Don’t forget to bring a hat, sunscreen and sunglasses, as you may spend all day outdoors.

Accomodation and food

Volunteers will stay in a dormitory at the biosphere reserve center with basic conditions, sharing rooms with volunteers of other nationalities joining the same program. Normally, rooms are arranged with about 1-4 volunteers per room. In the busy time the size can be maximum 8 volunteers per room. Western toilets and showers are available, room has fans. Breakfast, lunch & dinner are provided at the restaurant near by the center. Food is local style, cooked by a Vietnamese cook. The main types of food will be rice, meat, fish and vegetables. For vegetarians the choice is usually limited to rice, bread, vegetables, egg & tofu.

Interns get the chance to gain a greater understanding of differences between medical systems in developed and developing countries. PROJECT’S ACTIVITIES: The ‘Children’s Hospital ’ is located in District 1 in downtown Ho Chi Minh City. It is one of the most well-known pediatrics hospitals in Vietnam and as such, participants will have a different experience to that of working at Rehabilitation & Orthopedics Hospital. Interns at this hospital will only work with infants, children and adolescents; however, this hospital has a wide range of departments that interns can be placed in according to their specialties or interest. Interns must confirm their preference to VPV pre-arrival and we will contact directly with local staff to arrange a suitable department for the participant to be placed in. This is a very large hospital with high standards in Vietnamese healthcare. Operating room facilities are at the same level as Western hospitals whilst the general facilities are of better standard than most typical Vietnamese hospitals. Many staff at this hospital have a high level of English, which naturally benefits our participants, while many can also speak a third language such as French or Japanese. This hospital has a very high number of expert staff and arguably, a more professional feel when working there; as a result of this, participants may sometimes feel "lack of usefulness" and having less of an impact at work. On the other hand, with such a large number of patients visiting this hospital from all over Vietnam for specialist treatment, interns will likely see a wide range of illnesses and treatments, experience of which will benefit their personal development in the field regardless of where they are in their career. Interns will usually work from 8am until 5pm with a one – two hour break for lunch depending on the daily schedule. Participants will travel to work using public bus; the total journey time is around 30 minutes but can be more or less depending on traffic.

THEME/TYPE OF PROJECT: English Language for Children AIMS OF THE PROJECT: The aim of the program is to provide English language speaking environment for disadvantaged youth and develop their English communicative skills. PROJECT’S ACTIVITIES: Saigon Love School is located inside a Buddhist temple in Go Vap district, Ho Chi Minh city. It was established in 2005 to help educate 70 - 80 children from poor, undeveloped and immigrant families living near pagoda as some local teachers teach Vietnamese for them in the Love School in the morning. Travelling by bus the journey from the dorm is around 1 hour and a half but can be shorter or longer depending on traffic. Usually volunteers teach English for one or two lessons in the morning. You should definitely try to teach English even children are pretty active sometimes! In the class there may be students of many different ages. The students English skill level can also vary but the age does not reflect the level of English. The younger students may be better in English than the older students. You can always start the first lesson by introducing yourself and begin to get to know children. The most of the children do not know English well so you can start with the basics. The most of the volunteers have taught to student’s numbers, colors, body parts, etc. You can teach same things but also teaching of entire sentences would be advisable and helpful to the children. Try to involve the children to speak English and use your imagination; play games, sing songs, draw…. At the Peace House’s living room there are many English books which you can use. You can take copies of tasks or you can also do your own tasks. It is useful to use Vietnamese when you teach English. That’s how the students really understand what you mean. Try Google Translator, dictionaries or the help of VPV staff. VOLUNTEER’S TASKS: Volunteers will be responsible for taking control of the English class. Volunteers will work as the sole teacher in the class. You will be required to make a teaching plan with lesson plans using the learning materials provided to ensure continuity in learning from the teachers before and after you. Although most of students have studied English in the past, it is unlikely they know how to speak and listen properly. Due to this, volunteer’s work should be concentrated on helping students with speaking and listening. However, developing writing skill is also essential for the younger students in class. Remember to be their friend too. They have been through a lot and having fun with them through games and similar exercises will make it much more rewarding for them and for you. With permission from the principle of the school, volunteers may also arrange their own activities for the children to join and have fun together. The timetable will be given on arrival with volunteers working schedule from Monday to Friday and working hours from 09:00am to 10:45am. Volunteers will work around 4 - 7 hours per week at the class and will use the rest of their time between other projects and classes that require voluntary assistance.

Accomodation and food

Volunteers will stay in a dormitory, sharing rooms with volunteers of other nationalities joining the same program. Normally, rooms are arranged with about 2-6 volunteers per room. During peak season, the maximum can go up to 6 or 8 volunteers per room, in 5 bunk beds (8 beds in total). Western toilets, showers, and ceiling fans are available. hot water is also available.
