This is an educational non-profit institution that focuses on teaching unprivileged kids and youth in Thai Nguyen province on north Vietnam. The institution is solely based on private donations. However, it still manages to play a very important role in helping Thai Nguyen become more developed, both regarding teaching and general improvement in infrastructure.
The center is always trying to improve, both regarding facilities and teaching equipment. Currently, the center has four primary classrooms, where each classroom is equipped with a number of devices such as computers, monitors, and speakers. The center also has space for children to play and have extracurricular activities. In addition to teaching and learning, the center collaborates with several local organizations involved in community activities programs, who also focus on free English lessons to underprivileged children with extremely difficult circumstances. These kids do not have the option of going to “normal” school, and therefore Zethnis will continue to help and collaborate whenever needed.
Our goal is to help as many kids and students as possible. We strongly believe that the opportunity to interact and communicate with foreign volunteers will make them more likely to be confident and aggressive in their future career. We want the youth to have as many options as possible, and we want you to take part in this meaning mission.
