    Your Gift to the Community
    The German Vietnamese Community Development Organization (GEF e.V.) is running a program in Vietnam, which is a combination of education, health care and social initiatives established to support the local Vietnamese community.  If you are interested in an opportunity to experience Asia, while at the same time help those less fortunate, the GEF e.V.'s "Second Home" project is just the volunteer trip for you.
    Established in Germany, the GEF e.V. has implemented numerous projects helping those in Vietnam who are sick, disabled, and less fortunate, live better lives.  The Second Home project is our important program-in-progress, aiming to rear and train orphans, unprivileged and disabled children.  These children live under harsh conditions without the care of blood relatives, often facing cruel discrimination in the community.  We want to make sure that they will not be exploited, will not be beaten, and will have the opportunity to go to school, learn, and play in a safe and loving environment. 
    When they become a part of The Second Home project, they ultimately find a place to call home, where they will be loved and cared for by our dedicated staff.  Our hope is that their mental and physical pain will be replaced with bright smiles and hopeful futures.
    You might wonder what you can do as a member of The Second Home project?  Here are some of the activities that you will take part in:
    -         Provide the children with a ride to school.
    -         Teach the children English.
    -         Engage in recreational activities such as outdoor games, sports, etc.
    -         Help with general responsibilities such as assisting with homework, washing clothes, etc. 
    -         Distribute foods to kidney disease patients.
    -         Enjoy weekend trips around Hanoi, the capital, and to rural Bat Trang pottery village, a well known traveling point famous for its sophisticated ceramics, made under the skillful hands of local craftsman.  You will also have an unforgettable ride in a buffalo cart – a quite unique vehicle.
    This experience will provide you with the chance to understand more about Vietnam - the most peaceful country in the world, famous for its hospitality.
    So, what are you waiting for?
    By volunteering to be a part of the Second Home Project, you will have the very meaningful and rewarding opportunity to help those in need.  You will become mothers and fathers, sisters and brothers, to these precious children.  You will be contributing to bettering their lives, and will also be helping to make the world, in general, a better place.
