OUR CUSTOMERS EXPERIENCE
OUR VOLUNTEERS EXPERIENCE
“I was excited to apply because I knew about YESD through some activities to develop responsible tourism. The core values of YESD are consistent with what I am doing. My main job was to promote local handicraft products and improve the English skills of Thon Tha villagers. I enjoyed watching the product making, connecting with customers, and packing and shipping. I also loved teaching English. I was happy to see more and more students paying attention in class and seeing everyone’s progress. Volunteering in Thon Tha with YESD made me feel ecstatic and meaningful, knowing I can give people a better life.”

“During the early days of the project, I was greeted with friendliness. I was taught how to knit, visited famous local tourist attractions, and enjoyed the specialties of Tay ethnic… After a month of operation, with the role of English teaching assistant for local guides and developing local handicraft products, I feel very happy to have been able to help people get better every day.”

I came from France with a lot of expectations. I was afraid I wouldn’t fit in or adapt to the country. But my family host treated me really well, and made me feel at home. This experience is very enriching as I am learning a lot about the regional culture through the local community. I also had the chance to travel in the region and discover its most beautiful sceneries. It is a real pleasure to teach English to the friendly locals and to help the marketing team. I will never forget this experience in Vietnam.
