Projets volontariat au Vietnam

ACKNOWLEDGEMENT

Since its beginning in 2004, SJ Vietnam has had a lot of support from our partners, networks, friends and excellent volunteers. SJ Vietnam is a full member of CCIVS and NVDA since 2006. It is also a partner of YAP and the Alliance networks. Thanks to the great partnership, the organization has gained big success with more than 5000 local members and 500 international volunteers each year.

In August 2009, it hosted a special project: the Patrimonito- World Heritage workcamp sponsored by the CCIVS-UNESCO, which involved 17 international volunteers, and 2 members of SJ Vietnam in Ha Long Bay, the most famous World Heritage site in Vietnam. SJ Vietnam successfully held big events for 1000 disadvantaged kids on Children’s day and Mid-Autumn Festival. In December 2009, we celebrate International Volunteers’ day in collaboration with UNV, VSO and a lot international NGOs. The director of the organization is honor invited to be a keynote speaker of National Volunteers Conference in Vietnam by National Youth Union.

In August 2010, we co-organized the 9th Asia-Europe Yong Volunteer Exchange with ASEF and CCIVS-UNESCO in Ha Long City, which promotes and evaluates the impact of volunteerism to communities. The event was warmly responded by both participants and organizations. Besides, there are many events coordinated by our volunteers such as Christmas Days, 5th Anniversary of SJ Vietnam, New Year Eve, Traditional cake festival on Lunar New Year for poor people and disadvantaged children.

In 2011, the organization will have 20 workcamps, 17 long-term projects, 6 EVS projects and some special group workcamps as well as numerous projects with local community for social development.

For the achievements, we are sincerely thankful to our partners, friends, sponsors, donators, volunteers, and especially to Solidarités Jeunesses, UNV, and Vietnam National Youth Union, the World Bank, CCIVS-UNESCO, YAP, Alliance, NVDA, SCI and their members.
 

SJ Vietnam warmly thanks “Un Etai pour le Vietnam”, a French student association based in Toulouse which has been coordinating with SJ Vietnam in the project “Youth House-School for less-fortuned and street children at Fisher Village in Hanoi, Vietnam”.

We are looking forward to strengthening partnership with you and welcoming your volunteers to SJ Vietnam’s projects for sustainable development in beautiful Vietnam.

I. SJ VIETNAM INTRODUCTION

SJ Vietnam (www.sjvietnam.org) is an international youth NGO (Non-Governmental Organization) that promotes values of solidarity, peace, tolerance through young citizenship projects to improve society during and after the voluntarism. It was set up in 2004 by and for national and international young volunteers.

 

SJ Vietnam is an independent Vietnamese branch of SJ France, a full member of CCVIS (UNESCO) and NVDA, a partner of YAP and Alliance. SJ Vietnam is a non-political and non-religious organization which opens to everybody without any distinction of nationality, race, philosophy, financial resources, and education or sex.

 

    1. HISTORY

On December 24th 2004, with the help of UNV Vietnam, NVDA and Un ETAI Pour Le Vietnam, SJ Vietnam was established. The volunteering organization started as an informal cooperation between Miss Do Thi Phuc, Vice-president of Vietnam Youth Volunteer Club and Mr. Pierre De Hanscutter, a Belgian UNV working for UNDP Vietnam.

 

In June 2006, with the support of a sister organization in France, Solidarités Jeunesses, and Miss Do Thi Phuc became the official director of the organization SJ Vietnam, Mr. Pierre De Hanscutter became the Honorific President and official European representative. At the same time, SJ Vietnam is an official member of Network for Voluntary Development in Asia-Pacific (NVDA) and a full and active member of the Coordination Committee for the International Voluntary Service (CCVIS) at UNESCO.

 

In January 2008, SJ Vietnam was the co-host organization for 7th NVDA General Assembly in Vietnam and welcomed young volunteers of AEYVE from Asia and Europe.

 

In 2009, 5000 Vietnamese volunteers have been official members of SJ Vietnam. Around 500 international volunteers joined our activities each year. SJ Vietnam is currently one of the biggest international workcamp organizations in Vietnam.


 

    1. GOALS

By developing International Volunteering, SJ Vietnam aims to:

 

    • Work towards a society of justice, peace and solidarity

    • Break cultural misunderstanding between people and nations

    • Improve local and global environment, provide informal education, help to reduce poverty and strengthen human rights

    • Encourage young people to participate actively in the society in which they live.

The SJ Vietnam slogan reads: “Tình nguyện để sẻ chia, học hỏi và trưởng thành”, which can be translated as: Volunteer for sharing, learning and being responsible”. SJ Vietnam organizes workcamps and long-term projects, campaigns of social integration, training seminars, and international solidarity programs. All volunteers, both Vietnamese and international, are warmly welcomed to join and participate in the activities provided by SJ Vietnam. Furthermore, Vietnamese volunteers are sent abroad to participate in volunteering projects by our partner organizations all over the world.

 

    1. ACTIVITIES
       

      1. Workcamps

Workcamps organized by SJ Vietnam seek to provide an experience that connects solidarity, intercultural learning, and community life to help disadvantaged, street, poor and blind children, needy children in paediatrics hospital and disabled, old, homeless people.

Special workcamps are festivals and events. For Vietnamese festivals such as the International Children’s Day, Mid-Autumn festival, Christmas and Lunar New Year, SJ Vietnam organizes events to celebrate these meaningful occasions for less-fortuned children and people to give them equal opportunity, happiness and lots of smiles.


 

      1. Long-term Volunteer Projects and EVS:

Long-term and EVS projects (from 2 to 12 months) are organized in Hanoi, Hai Duong, Nam Dinh with topics related to environment and society to support sustainable development. Long-term volunteers will live and work like local people.


 

      1. Training courses, seminars and conferences

SJ Vietnam organizes regular workshops, seminars, conferences and training for its members, which provide young volunteers with knowledge in global education including conflict management, leadership, intercultural learning and volunteering skills, etc.

      1. Sending Vietnamese volunteers abroad

Thank you very much for your cooperation and please discover wonderful Vietnam through our programs!

 


 

II. WORKCAMPS IN VIETNAM 2011

 

SJ Vietnam’s workcamps vary from environment, education, art, construction to social work. In some workcamps, the hosts or the volunteers organize discussions, excursions, exchange parties, school visits and sports programs. The workcamps usually last from ten days to two weeks, and three weeks or four weeks with Vietnamese camp leaders. SJ Vietnam encourages people with difficulties to join our workcamps. Please contact us for more details.

When the volunteers are accepted, we will send you an updated info sheet or you can download it directly from our info sheet server at http://infosheet.sjvietnam.org

We also use evet database (www.evet.org) to manage our projects, you can send your volunteer applications directly to evet.

General information about our international workcamps:

  • Age limit: In general our volunteers should be about 18 years old. There are no maximum age limits for most of our workcamps

  • Work: Workcamps usually last for two weeks. Working hours are usually about 30-35 hours a week (5-7 hours a day; 5 days a week). Any exception is mentioned in the project descriptions.

  • Accommodation: Local community centers, schools, youth centers or other houses owned by the communities. The accommodations are usually in a basic but good condition and include a shared kitchen and bathroom. In some cases, we will have to take a shower at the local swimming pools.

  • Food: Food will be provided and volunteers are expected to do their fair share of the cooking/cleaning.

  • Camp Language: The common language is English, although the volunteers are encouraged to learn the basics of the local language.

  • Camp Leaders: The camp leaders have to represent the link between the hosting community and the group of volunteers. They coordinate the work, organize free time activities, plan excursions, shopping and cooking sessions. Apart from these responsibilities, they are equal to the other volunteers. Most of our camp leaders are local people and we are very open minded in hosting international leaders from other organizations.

  • Participation Fee: We are a non-profit organization with no external income, so we charge volunteers coming from developed countries participation fee of 160 Euro/workcamp/volunteer, 180-200 Euro/group workcamp/volunteer and. Volunteers should pay in Euro only. The fee includes accommodation (you can watch a video of one of our camp places at:

http://vietnam.solidaritesjeunesses.org/video/volunteers/visit%20of%20SJ%20House.avi), all costs of the projects (eg. free food, scholarship, donation, festivals for disadvantaged children and people, materials, training for locals), local transport, local food; and 20% of these fees will be used for SJ Vietnam administration (staff salary, rent, phone office work, etc). You can see more details in our Volunteer Handbook.


 

  • Insurance: SJ Vietnam provides a basic insurance for only our coordinators during the camp. We strongly recommend that the volunteers who plan to travel beyond these dates purchase a separate insurance.


 

  • Some practical matters: Depends on project, we highly recommend the volunteers to bring a sleeping bag, basic work clothes, hiking shoes, swimming suits as well as warm and waterproof clothes. Volunteers are also encouraged to bring information about their country, photos, music, songbooks, games, musical instruments, ingredients to cook special food from your countries, etc.


 

  • Volunteers with special needs: Our camps are open to everyone. If you have volunteers with special needs, please contact us. We will do our very best to find a way to host them.


 

  • Information Sheets: We will send out detailed information sheets with practical information and camp details the same day we accept the volunteers.


 

  • Our website www.sjvietnam.org : We encourage all our partners and volunteers to check out our website for more information about our projects. There you will find more detailed information and photos from our workcamps.


 

  • Getting to the campsite: Vietnam‘s public transportation is expensive and not very efficient. We will arrange a minibus trip to most of our workcamps. The participants can choose the minibus option to reach the workcamp location or traveling independently using public transport (e.g. buses, flights). The minibus fee will be published in the information sheet. However, beware that traveling with our minibus is usually the most convenient option. This is a great chance for the volunteers to meet before the camp starts and discover some of Vietnam‘s little-known and less-traveled areas on their way to the camp. Every participant who wishes to take the minibus has to inform us before arriving Vietnam.


 

  • Study Theme: In most of our workcamps, we will have a study theme. We will talk about the environment and the importance of daily eco-friendly practices. We believe that it is necessary to take action at a local level to address this crucial global issue. Although climate change may appear as a complex issue, there is a wide variety of simple actions that every individual and community can take to make a difference. Energy conservation, educational and reforestation programs, implementation of a walking culture instead a driving-everywhere culture, waste reduction for example, are just a few of the simple every-day options that allow people to have a strong impact on nature conservation.

Participate in our workcamps to have great fun and enjoy amazingly charming Vietnam!

    1. INFORMATION ABOUT EACH PROJECT


 

      1. SJV-G1 Hai Duong welfare center

Type: KIDS/SOCI/DISA

Location: Hai Duong province (50 km from Hanoi)

Project description

In collaboration with the welfare center in Hai Duong province, 50 km far from Hanoi, SJ Vietnam would like to run voluntary projects in the welfare center. The Welfare center was established in 1982 in Hai Duong city. There are around 1000 children coming from different parts of Hai Duong province. The centre is made up of disadvantaged children, children with disabilities at different level and orphans. All of them come from poor families and live in very poor living conditions.

Volunteers are expected to help the children in the welfare center with their daily tasks as well as organizing games and leisure activities for them. Volunteers are encouraged to help the center with painting the dormitories, the doors etc. and to decorate the walls along the corridor

Furthermore, the volunteers have the opportunity to join the children in drawing. They will help the nurses to take care of the infants as well. They are also encouraged to provide the children with information about health, facts about the countries volunteers are coming from, and to teach them some basic and funny English and other languages.

Hosting organization

The center aims to give children with disabilities as well as the poor and disadvantaged free and non-formal education, to provide vocational training and employment opportunity for them mainly in Hai Duong province and Northern provinces of Vietnam. These are some general purposes:

To help the disabled, poor and disadvantaged children to be able to integrate into the community, to provide a basis for equal life opportunities, and to give them free education and to improve their education level

Giving opportunities for them to take part in different activities, exchange their ideas, deal with the complexes, abate the disabled pain and improve their self-confidence in life.

The center will have vocational training programs depending on each object and also provide them with employment opportunities, which are suitable for their health; so that they can have the opportunity to live by themselves.


 

      1. SJV-G2 Giao Thuy Kindergarten

Type: KIDS/SOCI/DIS

Location: Nam Dinh (150 km far from Hanoi)

Project description

Giao Xuan kindergarten was established in August 1980. There are around 70 children who are aged between 12 months and 5 years coming to the kindergarten every day. Volunteers are expected to organize games for the children, teach them some songs, and dance. The Kindergarten really needs to be renovated so volunteers will help with building new fences, new walls, new ceilings, etc for the children. Volunteers will organize activities for the kids here who are very young but very excited to play with other people. Furthermore, volunteers are expected to raise fund to support the children at the kindergarten.

Hosting organization

This is a traditional kindergarten which is built long time ago for the children to come every day. They aim to take care and educate the children with very basic knowledge before they really start school.


 

About 70 children here are from 12 months to 5 years old. Many children coming every day, but there are not enough rooms for playing or living. There are only 8 rooms here, 4 rooms for 12 months to 3 year-old children and 4 rooms for the rest of the children. Besides, the condition of the kindergarten in general is not good enough for the children (the walls are too old, no mattresses, no blankets, no beds, no cabinets, lack of toys, etc.). They really need help to improve the condition for the kids.


 

      1. SJV-G3 Dong Cay Village

Type: KID/SOCI

Location: Dong Cay Village, Quang Ninh Province (200 km from Hanoi)

Project description

Volunteers are expected to help the local people in teaching basic computer skills, English and playing and taking care the small children (by organizing some games and leisure activities) while their parents are farming. Volunteers are also encouraged to help the commune with painting the Cultural house (a place that people gather in some days for meeting, discussing or organizing activities for children), cleaning the Monument, planting trees…

Furthermore, volunteers are also encouraged to provide the children with information about health, facts about the countries volunteers are coming from, and to teach them some basic and funny English and other languages.

 

3.2. COMMON INFORMATION ABOUT GROUP WORKCAMPS

 

Duration

1-3 weeks (SJ Vietnam and the partner can discuss and find the best time for both sides to organize this)

Food

Food will be cooked by volunteers during the work camp (except Hai Duong welfare center, the center will cook for us ). Volunteers will be split up into teams and the cooking team will go to the local market to buy food and cook for the rest of the group. The volunteers will eat local ingredients. Some special food from your country could be difficult to find here or could be expensive.

Accommodation

Volunteers will stay at the center ( in Hai Duong) or have home-stays with very simple and basic accommodation. Volunteers will live with the local people and it is a good chance for them to deeply understand about the Vietnamese people’s lives. Sleeping bags, sleeping mats, mosquito nets, pillow, and blankets are needed (except in Dong Cay village: people here don’t use mattress in the summer, so volunteers are preferred to bring their own air-beds).

Study part

We would like international volunteers to spend an evening having a workshop, to introduce about their country and people. This would help our children and volunteers to have a deeper understanding about the culture. Vietnamese volunteers will also have one evening to introduce about their country, culture and people.

(For example, we will organize one evening for volunteers to wear AO DAI – our traditional dress and introduce international volunteers about this tradition. International volunteers can do the same with their food, their life style, etc

International volunteers will teach English to local volunteers and children and in return learn Vietnamese from them. Volunteers can teach the children when they are playing and working together. The children don’t have many chances to communicate with foreigners. Therefore it will be a great chance for the children to improve their self-confidence or practice their English.
