Volunteer for community development - V4D
Hà Giang , HG
Volunteerism for Community Development & Environment Education(V4D) is a non-government, non-profit organization in Vietnam with a mission to build global community events through local environmental and community services.

As the first local Non-Government volunteer organization in Vietnam with official status to have volunteer programs, we provides opportunities that make a difference to the lives of people from all parts of the world. The organization also works to setup sustainable projects to protect the environment, provide career skills education services for vulnerable groups, encourage community development and cultural exchange.

V4D is managed by the Vietnam Association for Conservation of Nature and Environment (VACNE) with the support of Youth in Action program of European Commission in capacity building, and CCIVS (Co-ordinating Committee for International Voluntary Service) in the volunteer management.

Introducing Around Ha Giang

Hà Giang is a province in the Northeast region of Vietnam, an amazing landscape of limestone pinnacles and granite outcrops. It is located in the far north of the country, and contains Vietnam's northernmost point. It shares a 270 km long border with Yunnan province of southern China, and thus is known as Vietnam's final frontier. The province covers an area of 7945.8 square kilometres and as of 2008 it had a population of 705,100 people.

Ha Giang province is the last to open to tourism and offers some of the most striking sceneries in Vietnam. Virgin forests, natural fortress mountains sculpted into terraces, rock formations plateaus split by breathtaking canyons. These majestic landscapes shelter the largest diversity of ethnic minorities in Vietnam. Where keep pure landscapes and cultures than Sapa so you can explore the real life and natural landscapes in Ethnic minorities in Ha Giang like H'mong people. The area did not feel at all “touristy”. There is also virtually nothing to buy and no one is selling anything to tourists. We are highly recommended and please visit it before it becomes too popular!

Every corner of the province is worth spending time to visit.Please go to an article about Ha Giang on New York Time
