THE GREEN LION
Experience Vietnam by taking care of children at a local boarding home. You will be looking after them and giving them the assistance they need in their daily tasks. There are around 20 children in this small orphanage, many of the children are still infants and in need of a lot of care and attention. Some children from higher age groups (up to 18 years of age) will need your help with homework as well as someone to teach them some basic social skills and life skills. The level of English possessed by these children is also very low, so one of our focuses is to teach them this important language so they may possess this useful skill. You should focus on the fundamentals, such as simple vocabulary, basic conversation and writing. You’ll help the orphanage teach the children other life skills as well, such as those that promote creativity and artistic skills. The children receive piano lessons for example, as well as art lessons in which they create embroidered images that later on get sold in order to raise funds for the orphanage!
About the Accommodation This cozy guesthouse has 7 available rooms and is conveniently located in the center of La Gi’s township with a beach only 10-15 minutes away by taxi. Sheets are cleaned weekly by local staff. It has a small lobby but there are surrounding coffee shops for any relaxing or journal writing you may want to do in your downtime. There are also several local restaurants that compete for who makes the best Pho in town. Please note that the quality of internet access will depend on local weather conditions. Since we are in Southeast Asia, we might have poor internet accessibility at times due to heavy rain. Food Arrangements Basic Vietnamese meals are provided at this guesthouse (or a restaurant out of the guesthouse in some cases).
La Gi is a small beach town located in the south of Vietnam. As a village town, La Gi’s attractions have a tendency to feel more authentic and closer to a local experience due to its non touristic nature. La Gi will give you the chance to live like a local and learn about life in Vietnam and unwind at its beautiful beaches!
