When coming to Vietnam, they visited many famous places in Ho Chi Minh city, especially, War Remnants Museum – which had save the magnanimous marks in our war periods resisted France and USA. Everyone was so excited to listen to tourguide’s report about some important historical events. They also took some picture there.
As soon as be present at Loc Khanh commune, they have a meeting with Board of Local Leader. They had an interesting conversation about group’s works that was to come.
In our program at Loc Khanh commune, teaching English is a indispensable work. The room which had been decorated was used as classroom for children. It’s quite small, but so crowded. Despites hot weather, children pay their attention to lessons. They not only learn by heart so boring, the girls had prepared many lovely gifts that make all kids tried to outdo the others in answering questions.
At the time the girls of Nanyang Girl High School stayed there, this local was opening an event for actions because of Vietnamese children. To prepare for this ceremony, volunteers had to spend lots of time, even night to have nice presents for kids. Most of them were books and learning materials which were wrapped so carefully, looked very beautiful.
They got up very early to make ready for “Kick-off summer activities – Action month for children” ceremony. After arranging tables and chairs for the seats of audiences, they immediately built the stage. The children were also present at their position for performances. They looked so nervous as well as happy. This was also the separation day to Nanyang Girl High School students. The last day became warmer and closer.
The days working together, living and sharing with local people were passing over. We hope Loc Khanh commune will develop faster and the children will have better study conditions in the near future.
