About us

About us

Our history: we was founded in 2004 by Mr Viet Dang. Viet is a Vietnamese person and has a passion helping others in need. He worked as a volunteer English teacher at many disadvantaged schools in central Vietnam. During that time, he had the chance to work together with many international volunteers who came and supported Vietnam. He was extremely impressed by their passion in helping others in need too. With his understanding about Vietnam, in July 2004 Viet decided to set up Volunteer Vietnam organization that offers quality volunteer programs to international volunteers which the volunteers can contribute the most to Vietnam and has the most rewarding volunteer experience oversea. 

Our mission: we operate to support the underprivileged people in Vietnam and we do this by connecting volunteers with local communities in needs : orphanages, social support centers and disadvantaged schools.

Values:  Our volunteer programs are well-structured and organized by a dedicated staff team which gives volunteers a rewarding volunteer experience. Volunteers have chance to live in a comfortable volunteer house ( called Green House) where you will meet with many other volunteers and share your experience and make friends for life. 

Goals: As we operate to help many disadvantaged people in Vietnam, our goal to get as many volunteers as possible to provide daily aids in education, healthcare and well-being for the disadvantaged people. 


At Volunteer Vietnam our volunteers are a vital part of the team. We like to think of ourselves as a family working together to achieve our goals. Our support staff is available to assist our volunteers with whatever they need to get the most out of their trip to central Vietnam. Most of them speak excellent English. They able to communicate with you to help you prepare for your trip, pick up and training on your arrival. They help you as translators when you are at the placement sites. They also help you prepare volunteer activities or plan teaching lessons. Some of staff  live in the volunteer houses and will help you with information when needed.
