Work

*Ky Quang Orphanage is run by Ky Quang Pagoda, which was built in the early part of the 20th Century in 1924. The pagoda is now a place of charity for unlucky children and also helps to treat diseases. Now, the pagoda is taking care and bringing up more than 200 children in the South of Vietnam. The children here have unfortunate backgrounds as many have been abandoned by their parents and relatives. Every few months, the monks find a new baby left in front of the pagoda gate. The head monk sometimes receives phone calls from hospitals requesting him to take in abandoned babies. At the moment, about 200 children are living in the Pagoda, their ages ranging from 5 days old to 40 years old. 90 of these are orphans that are suffering from cerebral-palsy, blindness or Down's syndrome, Agent Orange. At present, about 30-40 local children have a chance to study at Ky Quang as some local teachers teach Vietnamese for them in the morning. CVI is a learning center for disadvantage children, homeless children, those were born in poor family to have a chance to learn how to read and write in Vietnamese. That is the basic need for children as their age. Besides that, CVI provides opportunities for them to develop their life skills. At present the center has accepted about 40 kids around the area. We believe every child deserves an education, we empower the next generation, to choose a world full of compassion. Co May Dormitory was built on purpose of generating good condition for poor and good students. It provides free dorms and other facilities for students who are studying at universities located in Ho Chi Minh City. We believe that with support from Co May, the student will concentrate on studying to become a good citizen then contribute in the development of the country.. * Work: Volunteers will spend time with the children to organize games and other activities for them, play with kids aged from 3 to 5 years old, help the baby sister to take care of the children. Volunteers will do some manual work which benefits the project where the children are staying, studying, such as help to paint classroom and clean the area. They also will be working with local communication volunteers to update your activities at the project site on SJ Vietnam’s websites and on ICT Life’s online newspaper through reports, pictures, videos,…

Work

The role of the university is to prepare students for their professional future life and career. In today’s globalized world and modern societies, English speaking is extremely important in developing a country like Vietnam. The issue is that, even though Vietnamese students spend 6-7 years learning English, they still cannot speak and communicate in English. Because of the traditional teaching methods, they can only write grammatical sentences, while their oral skills are very bad. With this project, SJ Vietnam helps university and college students to improve their speaking/oral skills interacting with foreign volunteers and helps them to open their mind by learning from different cultures. Our international volunteers have a real impact and encourage Vietnamese students to pursue their dreams and to participate in the development of Vietnam (through tourism and business, and the development of a qualified Vietnamese workforce). *Your work: Help students improve their English skills as a mentor, work together with the local staffs and cooperate with humanitarian aid service and non-profit organizations to organize social activities for students (such as charity/voluntary work in the community, fundraise for those activities, etc.) Volunteer will be also working with local communication volunteers to update your activities at the project site on SJ Vietnam’s websites and on ICT Life’s online newspaper through reports, pictures, videos,…

Ky Quang Pagoda was built in the early part of the 20th Century in 1924 and is relatively famous in Ho Chi Minh City. The pagoda is now a place of charity for unlucky children and a traditional medicine clinic for local residents. The Pagoda Orphanage was founded and is run by the ‘Bonze Thich Thien Nhan’. It has 35 staff members who stay at the Pagoda to take care and bring up these orphans. The operation funding mainly comes from local benefactors, social organizations and international volunteers and visitors. The children here have unfortunate backgrounds; many have been abandoned by their parents and relatives, babies are often found at the front gate of the pagoda and then taken in. Sometimes, the head monk receives phone calls from hospitals requesting him to take in deserted babies amongst other situations. At the moment, about 100 children and adults are living in the Pagoda, their ages ranging from 5 days old to 40 years old. There is a day care-room that includes 35 disabled children at this moment suffering in particular from cerebral palsy, blindness or Down's syndrome.
