Teach French and English at probably the best Helpx project in South East Asia. Hai Phong, Vietnam
Who we are?
#Note1: We provide support with the visa arrival so if you find it difficult to deal with it yourself please let us know so we could help

Our project is an educational social Enterprise seeking support for our organization in Hai Phong. We firmly believe that Education is fundamental key to human progress, enabling individuals and communities to acquire skills and knowledge, essential for improving their quality of life. But for disadvantaged youth their access to education is limited
We are based in Hai Phong province, the third largest city in Vietnam which is also a tourism province located 100km from the City capital of Hanoi. Our place is located in a peaceful neighborhood 45 minutes away from Do Son - the famous beach and 2 hours away from Cat Ba – Pearl Island, is the most beautiful, largest island in Halong Bay, the World Natural Heritage Site.
What We Do
We operate with English and French communication classes (reasonable price or free) for the disadvantaged and middle class young students. We believe that having the ability to communicate English makes a valuable difference to the students life’s within these communities as it gives them the chance to apply for higher paid jobs, substantially improving their standard of living.
We aim to create the most welcoming and exciting environment for volunteers all around the world come to help us and experience Vietnam culture at the same time.
Through practical English lessons, students not only improve their English skills but also have a great chance to meet foreign friends, have fun, learn about Western culture and broaden their horizon.
