Pa Che 1, Van Ho Village, Moc Chau district, Son La province
The trip started in the early morning with extremely eager volunteers and four SDCers. We received a very warm welcome from the headmistress of Pa Che 1 Elementary school and the children after a 5 hour long journey by coach. We were greatly supported and encouraged through the hospitality of the local people. We successfully organized three small programs at the school.
The first program, on the afternoon of the 15th, was about garbage recycling. The focus of the second program was a music night on June 15th. The third program, which took place on the morning of the 16th, focused on the protection of trees.
During their spare time, some of the volunteers organized a variety of games for the children, while the logistics team prepared the meals. We also shared great meals with the local authority in addition to the children’s program. In conclusion, the tour was definitely very meaningful. The tour not only brought the volunteers closer together, but also the team members and local community.
