In very close cooperation with Global Spectrum Tour Company which promotes the Global VolunTourism (GVT) program, we aim to provide travelers with an opportunity to not only enjoy their travels but also to help needy people and communities through volunteer activities. You will be doing truly charitable work while traveling. In Volun tourism, travelers can contribute their own material and talent resources as they volunteer their services to the people residing at the visited locations.
In this way you can enhance the people-to-people relationships between travelers and the locals. In their work, travelers can experience life as it truly is, something which cannot be discovered on even an excellent guided vacation tour. A normal itinerary may provide travelers with memories of natural beauty, cultural character, food and leisure time activities, but volunteer work will surely leave a lasting impression of the location and its people whom you have met and helped. This new purpose for traveling will hopefully be a reason to come back again and again.
The volunteer work can be very diverse and flexible. You might give water buffaloes to some poor families, deliver bicycles and wheelchairs to disabled and needy people, build houses for poor local people needing shelter, provide workshops on generating income for the disabled, and many more such activities which will help preserve the unique cultural value of the ethnic minorities. The traveler is directly involved in this volunteer work as part of the tour. Youth can share with students by playing creative games or giving instruction in the English language.
Dentists can provide dental screening and treatment. Doctors can do medical examinations in the field and provide public health care workshops. Talented workers can teach professional techniques to local laborers. These are just a few of the options. Armed with only goodwill and enthusiasm, any traveler can find appropriate ways to give volunteer help to others. And your trip will be much more meaningful and memorable when you can give back to the world in which you travel. Since 2008, we have given 3 USD to our foundation for every booking with Indochina Charm Travel. This money, together with the community work from our staff every year, is given to ICT for charitable work in the communities of Vietnam.
