Make a REAL difference in Vietnam with Childcare & Development Program




Ho Chi Minh City
Ho Chi Minh


This amazing program will warm the heart of any international volunteer with a love for working with children and helping those in true need. Volunteers on this project will be based in the largest city in Vietnam, Ho Chi Minh, a bustling metropolis jam-packed with culture and sights. From street food vendors selling local fare (all travellers must try the delicious ‘pho’) to historic war sights and museums, this city truly is an amazing place to visit, however, it is also one that neglects the most vulnerable in its society. Ho Chi Minh’s children are suffering and international volunteers are needed to provide support. As a developing nation, poverty levels are high, and children suffer from many ills, such as a lack of nutrition, to low levels of education and health. Due to poverty, many children are unable to be cared for by parents and wander the streets, vulnerable to abuse and other harms including human traffickers. Volunteers on this project will supply at risk children with quality care and education, and supply much-needed labor to support these children and provide the attention they deserve.

Goals of this Project:

  • Provide quality childcare to the vulnerable children of Ho Chi Minh
  • Improve the future prospects of local children through academic, social and emotional support
  • Provide a basic education to those in need
  • Enable inter-cultural exchange which benefits both children and international volunteers alike


  • Housing Available
  • Language/Cultural Support Available


  • Groups
  • Families
  • International Volunteers

How To Apply

Love Volunteers welcomes all those 18 years and over who wish to assist in the ongoing support and development of marginalized and at-risk children of Vietnam. This highly interactive and varied project does not require participants to have a background in the field of childcare, as there are many ways you can assist. However, volunteers with suitable education, qualifications or experience are highly sought after. Regardless, a volunteer’s individual role can often be tailored to suit their particular skills and interests. Importantly, all applicants must first and foremost have a genuine willingness to help, show drive and initiative, and bring a positive 'can-do' attitude. If this sounds like you, we want you on the team!

Additionally, volunteers applying to join this program will be required to supply to following documentation:

  • Emergency contact
  • Police check
