Volunteers from Israel join an activity with Lao Cai's students

The 22 group members are teaming up with 10 students of the Thai Nguyen University’s branch in Lao Cai. They are teaching English and other subjects in basic English to more than 1,000 elementary and secondary students.

The volunteers are also joining extracurricular activities with local students and fixing the schools’ facilities.


Israeli Ambassador to Vietnam Nadav Eshcar said the activity is to promote Vietnam’s potential tourist destination to people in Israel, adding that it is also part of an annual programme of the Israeli Embassy in Vietnam.

Members of the voluntary group will return after one year to continue the activity and maintain their connection with the locality.

This is the first time the group has come to Vietnam, which has the largest number of registrations of over 1,000./.VNA
