Visiting Tuan Dao Commune, Bac Giang
On June 22nd and 23rd, SDC organized a trip to Tuan Dao commune, located in Son Dong district, in the province of Bac Giang for a group of students from different universities. The objective of the trip was to organize activies that covered different topics such as: the nutrition, cultural exchange for children and youth unity and House visits to the Bac Giang project. This was also an opportunity for volunteers to be able to express themselves and their new life experience in the countryside. The volunteers got a better perspective of this lifestyle by understanding the structure of a household, enjoying a family meal, and singing with the local singers form the commune. These activities strengthened the cultural exchange among the local and the international volunteers.
On the second day, despite the bad weather, people still came to the cultural house to listento the educational program on nutrition for children. Our group was really surprised at the agility and intelligence of the children from the commune. These gifts that the volunteers had prepared were given to each household. Although the gifts were small, the volunteers hope that they can encourage the children to study hard and stay healthy. Our trip ended by trekking into Phuon streams. It rained but all volunteers were enthusiastic and eager to help the cleaning-up project. The trip has left a good impression and memories for the volunteers involved. Mrs.My – Leader of Woman Union and the local people expressed their warm welcome to our volunteers to show their gratitude.
