Vietnam Aid Expedition - Catalyst Foundation

2015 AE Group Pic

Catalyst Foundation prides itself on coordinating emotionally rewarding, sustainable volunteer experiences, working hands on with our community members in rural picturesque Vietnam. Our “project sites” are the homes and schools of those we serve, not tourist attractions.

The ideal volunteer enjoys working with children of all ages, as well as adults.  They do not need to speak Vietnamese but are willing and adaptable to different environments, conditions, and cultures. Volunteers need a reliable work ethic and are committed to making a difference and serving others in need.

Catalyst Foundation has had 28 volunteer expeditions with over 576 volunteers in the last 17 years. Each volunteer experience was different in its goals and outcome but focused on providing HOPE.  Volunteer tasks fell into certain categories: working with and educating children, women’s empowerment, technology assistance, photographic and documentary services, providing basic dental and medical care, and the construction of homes, schools and playgrounds.
