Vietnam is one of Global Village’s most popular destinations, and it’s not hard to see why. Amazing food, a vibrant culture and a rich history make this country a fascinating place to visit. While incredibly beautiful, Vietnam is also very vulnerable and many people live in poverty. You have the chance to help a community in Quang Nam experience a brighter, safer future by helping them to build a decent home.
A Global Village trip is a truly rewarding experience. Get your hands dirty on the worksite, interact with the families whose houses you are helping to construct, experience the country like an insider and do it all alongside a team of like-minded volunteers. No experience is required, sign up today!
Quang Nam is a poor province located in the central coastal region of Vietnam. The majority of people in the province rely on agricultural activities (rice, short-term crops, forestation, fish breeding and farming) for their livelihoods. Infrastructure in many localities of the province is very weak and housing, water and sanitation solutions are especially insufficient.
Due to its complicated topography, Quang Nam is often affected by storms, floods, droughts, whirlwinds and landslides; communes located in the coastal and highland areas suffer the most.
Whenever natural disasters hit in the province, houses, water and sanitation facilities and agricultural production are seriously damaged. Habitat for Humanity Vietnam’s project in Quang Nam entered its second phase in September of 2016 and it continues to help build resilience to natural disasters and climate change for those living in Que Son District, while also providing resources necessary to improve water and sanitation-related household health.
