Volunteers in this project will help out at a charity restaurant that offers affordable meals to poor students, immigrants and local workers in Ho Chi Minh City. The restaurant does fundraising in order to be able to offer quality meals at a low cost of 2000 VND (less than 10 cents).

Volunteers are needed in this project to support the charity mission of the restaurant and help prepare meals for poor people. Volunteers with relevant experience can join the cooking. Most of the time, volunteers will help preparing food, washing vegetables, setting up tables.

The restaurant is located in the central part of Ho Chi Minh City. Participants in this charity project will be able to learn about life in the city which changes very quickly with a growing gap between different parts of society.

Volunteers' main duties in the charity restaurant involve preparing food, washing vegetables or setting up tables. They will also help serving meals, cleaning tables, washing dishes.

Volunteers in this project are expected to be motivated, hard working, enthusiastic and attentive. Cooking experience is very welcome.


A one- to three-day orientation and training is provided at the beginning of the project. It covers topics such as aims and structure of the program, introduction to Vietnam and tourist destinations recommendation, practical information and arrangements, basic Vietnamese and local travel guide and visits to host placement(s).


Participating in an international short term volunteer project (so called Workcamp) can be an exciting prospect. It is an interesting and meaningful way to travel with purpose and spend 2-3 weeks in a foreign environment. Working and living together with other volunteers from around the world provides an excellent opportunity to make many new friends, learn about unknown places and culture, gain new skills and experience. Your time, energy, and enthusiasm can make a difference in areas where help is really needed.
After successful participation CADIP issues a certificate for the completed volunteer hours.
