About the project

We are excited to announce that we will be returning to Vietnam in April 2021. A team of 40 to 50 students will have the opportunity to spend 8 days at a community project in the Mai Chau region of Vietnam. The exact project build is yet to be determined based on the needs and requirements of the community. Previous big build projects tasks have included basic building work such as digging, mixing cement, bricklaying, plastering, moving building supplies to the site and so on. You will have the opportunity to meet local people and learn about their way of life as well as supporting them and their community.

Character development

Participants will take it in turns to be student leaders during the project, taking responsibility for the organisation of the day, briefing their peers, giving an overview of safety and risk management and organising a student rota to help with different chores at camp. Students will be given feedback by their peers and the adult leaders, and will all receive a personal report after the trip.

All participants will:

Big Build Projects are the perfect opportunity for Schools to provide targeted leadership training for potential future leaders including your next Head Boy or Girl, or students with other areas of responsibility in their school (eg sports captain, school prefect, committee chair.)
