Teaching English to primary school students in Saigon
Vinh Son school was built in 1991 from a "piggery" in Binh Thanh district. This project is a free primary school for children whose families have no opportunity to send them to public schools. At the moment, there are about 120 children aged 6 to 16 joining 6 classes. These children come from many different districts of Ho Chi Minh City, some of them even take almost 2 hours to get to the school. After class, many children have to help their parents earn money by selling lottery tickets, collecting scrap (nylon bags, plastic, glass,…) or look after a baby of a neighbour.
The international volunteers will help to teach English and organize educational activities for the children in the school. The volunteers will also do some renovation work for the school.
