Catalyst Foundation prides itself on coordinating emotionally rewarding, sustainable volunteer experiences. Working hands on with our community members in rural picturesque Vietnam, our “project sites” are the homes and schools of those we serve, not tourist attractions.
Over the last 20 years, we have had 35 volunteer aid expeditions with over 800 volunteers. Each volunteer experience was different in its goals and outcome but focused on providing HOPE.
Volunteer tasks fell into certain categories: working with and educating children; women’s empowerment; technology assistance; photographic and documentary services; providing basic dental and medical care; and the construction of homes, schools, and playgrounds.
Volunteers need a reliable work ethic and are committed to making a difference and serving others in need. They do not need to speak Vietnamese but are willing and adaptable to different environments, conditions, and cultures.
Participant Fee: $800/adult and $450/student
Participant Fundraising Goal
For the safety, dignity and well-being of our community, we do not allow members of the public to randomly “visit” our community; however, we will be happy to arrange a meeting or phone call with you and our Founder and Executive Director to discuss our programs and work. Our “project sites” are the homes and schools of those we serve, not tourist attractions. The school our children attend is not a private school. Consequently, we cooperate with the Ministry of Education, and are very strict about making sure visitors do not interrupt the school day.
