Fantastic experience with Social Enterprise

I volunteered with VEO on a two month placement in Hanoi, Vietnam.

VEO are a young, welcoming and exciting social enterprise who are doing something completely new to Vietnam by introducing Volun-tourism. eg. encouraging local and international tourists to participate in weekend volunteer trips in rural communities where, along with having a great time, they can also spend an afternoon teaching, or building infrastructure in the local community.

I worked in the marketing team helping to attract new volunteers to these trips as well as supporting a local community organisation grow their business via social media and e-commerce channels.

I found the experience challenging working in such a different environment. I would recommend volunteering at VEO if you want to work in a social enterprise making a real difference in local communities and are open minded and a self-starter.

As an additional benefit, VEO is a non-for profit organisation, so by volunteering directly with them, you do not need to pay a 3rd party organization to organize your placement for you!
