Xin chào!   Team Vietnam is looking forward to the Shoulder-to-Shoulder trip in January. Here we are at the last class of the semester on campus. Next time we meet, it will be at the airport to board our flight to Hong Kong, and from there, to DaNang.   Pictured: Cian Moriarty, Connor Mankouski, Drew Patrick, Lane Sulzer, Professor Anh Tran, Gabrielle Varallo, Madeline Kenny, Bridget Dougherty, Corey Zemke, Jenna Noel.  Missing from photo: Paul Boutiette, Professor Margo Lemieux.  

The gate to the SOS Children's Village

We spent the semester preparing by learning history, economics, art, music, much more - including some Vietnamese language.   While in Da Nang, which is on the central coast of Vietnam, we will be working at SOS Children's Village, where we will be helping the children with English pronunciation. SOS is an international organization. The Village is home to approximately 140 children and services many more children and families in the surrounding area. You can read more about it here. http://www.sos-childrensvillages.org/where-we-help/asia/vietnam/da-nang  

Our adventure will begin with the New Year, leaving Boston at 2am on January 2.  

Stay tuned for reports and updates.  

Tạm biệt!
