A little bit of context

Danang is the third largest city in Vietnam with a population of approximately 1 million. Da Nang is increasingly becoming a popular tourist destination. The Han riverfront gleams with new modernist hotels, beautiful restaurants and spectacular new bridges.

But there’s a problem

Step away from the tourist areas and you can see many underprivileged people in need of our help.

Here’s what we’re doing about it

We are working in collaboration with Volunteer Vietnam, a non for profit organisation in DaNang. Our goal is to improve the quality of life of disadvantaged people at the orphanages and social support centers in Central Vietnam. Our aim is to provide them with enough skills and health in order to become more self-sufficient.

Our Team

We are a group of 11 Deakin University students who are passionate about helping others. We come from varied courses providing a unique set of skills and knowledge to increase opportunities of the people in Central Vietnam. Our homes and university locations range from regional to metropolitan areas of Victoria. We have come together with a common goal to improve the lives of the Vietnamese people.

You can join us

Donating any money you can will provide Vietnamese people with improved health care facilities for the elderly and disabled by providing equipment for rehabilitation. Your money will also go to providing schools with resources to improve the learning opportunities for students.

You can follow our volunteer program via our Facebook page to see how we are making a difference.
