On Saturday 4th May 2013, the first event of wind-down club named “cultural colours” cheerfully took place at CVTD volunteers office – room no 403, Licozi building, Me Linh, Ha Noi. The participants included: CVTD volunteers: Mr.Moritz from Germany, Mr.Teddy from the USA, Ms. Amarines from Holland, members of Flute club from ethnic communities of Vietnam and more than 30 guests from many countries included: Bangladesh, Korea, Vietnam…

The aim of wind-down club is to becomes a relaxing destination for all of those who are keen on meeting foreign friends, experiencing cultural difference and wind-down after busy working days – like what the name “wind-down” tells. In the first event, participants enjoyed an interesting warm-up game, a film captured the daily life of northly ethnic minority and beautiful flute performances. Simply chatting becomes very exciting with friends all over the world.

As the beginning event of the club, “cultural colours” event was very well prepared by CVTD staffs and volunteers. The start time was 7pm but since afternoon, everyone had gathered to practice, decorate the room and get ready. 



A guest, Mr.Jamal from Bangladesh said: “Tốt” (means “Great”). “I like all parts of this event, especially the flute performance. I will come to the next event of your club.”

We would like to thanks all guests who came and celebrated the first event of wind-down club with us. Wind-down club will come back soon with more interesting and meaningful activities in the next event.

CVTD internship

  • I had a great time volunteering with CVTD. Had the opportunity to meet amazing people from so many countries, besides the experience to work with disable kids that was so special and definitely unforgettable in my life. I got all the support i needed and felt home during the month i spent on the project. Hope to come back one day. 

  • My experience with CVTD Vietnam was great ! Work with kids is really tiring and you have to keep your energy and enthusiasm all the time but when you see them smiling, having fun and the most important learning things from you it really worth it ! 

  • I had an amzing time!Definitely the place to volunteer if you are in vietnam!the girls who work there are superfriendly and make you feel at home in no time.

  • These have a great record of providing low- income families an opportunity to learn English. With so many NGOs to choose from in Vietnam, I found these follows its mission of wanting to make a difference and not skewing away from its original plan of helping others. 

  • Thanks for the good wishes and your support during my stay-I'll definitly come back if i get the chance.

  • I stayed and worked here for several weeks and had a very fun and rewarding experience. The students are great. The staff is friendly and the food is good. You'll typically have roommates from Vietnam,...

  • I really enjoyed being part CVTD Team. This has been a super great time. Children are willing to learn English which is very motivated. So classes are very pleasant. 

  • I came to CVTD , wanting to be an English teacher but I had no experience. 
    CVTD has given me the opportunity to put my training into action and teach a wide range for ages and English levels in a classroom setting.

  • I came to CVTD with the teaching experience and how I feel more confident with teaching English to all ages. I have never volunteered before so volunteering at CVTD has made me feel good and I’m glad that I got this opportunity.

  • It has been a nice experience. It is a good feeling help people who want to improve their English level and Vietnamese students are very grateful and they have made me feel very well.
