GROUND has been involved in several successful and sustainable community service projects that tangibly improve the living conditions of the local people. The GROUND program in Vietnam invites students to Lang Son Village, northwest from Hanoi, to take part in a school renovation project. The village school is three small classrooms constructed of bamboo with a mud floor. The project will significantly improve the school and students can contribute by making mud bricks and a concrete floor to keep the school from flooding when it rains. On breaks from the building project, students can interact with the school children, teach them English and play learning games.
Its friendly people and beautiful landscapes make Lang Son an excellent destination for your service learning journey! Students will have a unique opportunity to develop self-confidence in leadership, collaboration and cooperation. You can also discern your aptitude for learning new languages and other non-academic life skills.
