Experiencing culture of the ethnic tribe at Buoc village

What happens when I apply?

In the middle of the green Vietnamese mountains you can find a small Buoc village where Thai-people (an ethnic group that came from southern China) live. Because of great natural conditions, Thai-people rely mainly on agriculture. In the past, the village was located adjacent to streams and people in the village used water from the stream for gardening. However, during the rainy season water from the mountains goes down, washes everything away and makes it very dangerous to live close to it. For this reason, in 2002 the government has helped the residents to move to higher lands and build traditional wooden houses.

Help local people to garden and repair traditional houses (if needed), organise leisure activities for their children and cultural exchange with the villagers.

Volunteers will stay together in the bamboo house, which is also equipped with Western-style toilets and bathrooms. Meals are normally served by the local people with volunteers’ help.

The meeting point is in the project office in Hanoi, from where volunteers travel together to the project location.

It is possible to get the airport transfer for approx. $ 20.

Respect for a different culture.

Will and ability to work manually.

Communicative knowledge of English.

A motivation letter is not required.

Price for 14 days 210 EUR / 11 days
Registration fee 3000

If you want more or less days, contact us.

The price includes accommodation, full board food, transportation at project site and necessary materials for projects.

More information

Once you have found a project you like, start the application process and let our experienced team build your volunteer vacation, personalised to you. We make the planning and pre-departure process as quick and hassle free as possible.

After registering with us (during registration, you will need to agree to our terms and conditions, here: Volunteer_T&C) and then paying the registration fee, we will review your application and match you to the project in the destination country.

We want to ensure the project is suitable for you but also that the project receives suitable volunteers. Next we will send you confirmation of your reserved spot on the project plus a detailed information pack. This covers project details and practicalities along with requirements for visas, vaccinations, local climate and safety information.

Are you looking for a seamless, pre-departure service customised to you? We can take care of those complicated pre-departure needs for you. Pick and mix whichever services you require, for example:

  • Flight bookings
  • Visa application processing
  • Transport connection arrangements
  • Expert consultation. Talk one on one with one of experts

and more, based on your requirements. Contact us for more information at info@voluntair.cz

A volunteer trip overseas is a complex undertaking compared to regular vacation. Particularly the planning and preparation. We work hard taking care of those details so that you don’t have to worry about them. Apply online, we will take care of the rest.

The world of volunteering offers a unique experience to travel and immerse yourself in authentic cultures, contribute, challenge yourself and most of all have fun. Going outside of your comfort zone far from home can be daunting. Paying money to an organisation far away can also be unsettling. But it doesn’t have to be. We partner with only trusted, verified projects that genuinely contribute to the local environment and community. Also, 100% of your project fees go directly to the local project, not to us.

Service quality:
We are obsessed with customer service and quality of delivery. From the moment you contact us we want you to have a friendly but professional experience. From the quality of the projects we offer, to the pre and post trip service with us we want to exceed your expectations.

We are an agency service, offering volunteering overseas. We do not operate any volunteer projects ourselves. Instead we have spent months, years, identifying and verifying locally-run projects and organisations in destinations around the world.
