Sydney, Australia -- Workcamp in Vietnam

In January, Nairana Study Centre organized the fifth “Nairana Workcamp,” a volunteer activity in Vietnam. The boys taking part traveled to Saigon, where for twenty days they carried out various service projects. In the Phu My orphanage in Ho Chi Minh City, they provided assistance to the personnel from this institution in caring for several hundred disabled children. The second part of their program took place in K’Long, a village in the mountains near Saigon. There they built houses for the local people, repaired key roads for the town and prepared fertile land for agriculture. The boys also dedicated some hours to teaching English to local inhabitants. Financial assistance was provided by funds the students themselves had collected a year earlier, asking families and friends for help.
