My experience was really much more than expected, I can only say many thanks for everything. I enjoyed the experience since my first moment in Vietnam thanks to all the VIVPS family. I really appreciated all of the help inside and outside the center with accommodations and travel on the weekends and so on. We will meet again as soon as possible

As always it has been an amazing experience, I feel proud to belong to this family. Outstanding are the roles of Katie and Thuong, both are priceless for the children and the volunteers. Also noteworthy was the help we received from Hai, one of the residents Helping Hands employs to help the volunteers. The most important thing I take with me is the love shared, nothing can be compared to it. See you again next year. xx

My volunteering experience with VIVPS and the center has been an enriching, meaningful and unforgettable one. I have learned so much and so grateful to be part of the children’s lives at the center. The memories and relationships made with the children, VIVPS staff and other volunteers will always have a special place in my heart. Thank you for the opportunity to be blessed and bless others as well as making an impact on the children.

Before coming to Vietnam I was very unsure and skeptical about this program, I had no idea about what I would face. After my three weeks I was very happy to have made many friends and learn many valuable lessons from everyone. Words cannot describe how grateful I am to everyone and to see the difference they are making to help these precious little individuals. I will definitely return to see you all, thank you for everything <3

It is hard to put into words my time here in Ba Vi. I have enjoyed every moment of it, the children are amazing and I am so sad to leave them behind. The staffs of VIVPS are so great, friendly and helpful. I know I have made many lifelong friends here and I will be back at some point.

This was one of the most incredible life changing events. I will be unable to return to New Zealand as the same person that left, and this is an excellent thing! Thanks to all of the staff at VIVPS for their support – their work in Ba Vi is invaluable.

It is impossible to put into words how much this trip has changed me. I am definitely not the same person I was three weeks ago. The kids at the centre taught me how to love unconditionally and they taught me how to live. Thankyou so much to Terry Donnelly, Donnelly Thuy, Catarina Tarvin, Avalon Bourne for being so amazing and giving me the opportunity to be a part of the GYA and VIVPS teams. I will remeber everything about this trip and I will cherish every smile and laugh. 😍😚 xx

Unbelievable experience, really eye opening and life changing.

Thank you for an unforgettable experience, the work you are doing really does make a difference.
