University of NSW, (Australia) a few remarks from the students

It has been a wonderful experience to share with you all, I’m so grateful I had the opportunity to contribute to this program I see VIVPS as a very supportive environment, it is also amazing to hear from so many returning volunteers about the changes at the center, all for the good of the kids I have thoroughly enjoyed the experience and the support given from start to finish has been excellent, the program is great and can’t be improved upon in my opinion The VIVPS and Helping Hands Vietnam staff are very inspirational people that wants only what is best for the kids

This was the best organized it has ever been, Justine was great, nothing was a problem for her to organize and Katie and Justine’s structure for the rooms was fantastic. The whole Helping Hands team was amazing in their support and so much fun to be with. They made me feel so welcome, I would like to make a special mention of Hai and his brilliant attitude and support, I am really going to miss him.

Was great to be back and see how much has changed, it was nice to see the work of the volunteers paying off. Awesome to see happier children getting outside more, and with more facilities available to them. Also great to see how many Helping Hands Vietnam staff are now working with Terry, its nice knowing most children will get something special each day.

Taiysa We loved our experience with VIVPS/HHV in Ba Vi. The work VIVPS does is incredible and truly impacts the kid’s lives in a positive way. The VIVPS staff are so helpful welcoming and kind. The center program is run very well and smoothly. They truly make you feel like part of the family. Thank you to everyone, you are all inspiring and beautiful people. I am sad to leave but know I will come back as soon as possible. Brett Really enjoyed my time here in Ba Vi. The staff (VIVPS) and other volunteers were amazing to be around and work with. While the conditions that the children are living with are quite horrible I sincerely believe that you guys are making a positive difference in their lives.

I love my time in this program, the VIVPS staff are warm and welcoming and I have seen many improvements at the center on this trip. The availability of schedules and information on the children is great. I particularly liked the flexibility to participate in all areas of the program. I look forward to my third trip in 2017.
