NGO Fair 2016

NGO Fair 2016

On Thursday August 18, the fourth annual NGO (Non- Government Organizations) Fair took place at the MLC. The aim of the fair is to engage and inspire students in the hope that they will start a GIN club to raise awareness about a local or global issue.

This year, we welcomed 19 NGOs (Non-Government Organizations): Vina Capital Foundation, EAST, Pacific Links, SOS Village, Kickstart, OperationSmile, Animal Rescue and Care, Clean up Vietnam, Home of Hope, Friends for Street Children, CHANGE, SOZO, Vietdreams, Habitat for Humanity, Orphan Impact, DCOH, Saigon Children Charity and Wildlife at Risk. They presented their work to raise awareness and sold some items to fundraise.

 

Students visit the “Home of Hope” booth. Home of Hope is a safe house for survivors of human trafficking

Leave messages on the walls of the Habitat for Humanity’s “house”

Try wearing gas masks in fight against pollution. How inconvenient!!!

We also welcomed two lovely puppies to the fair. Hands to paws!

Students had to find the answers to aset of questions which related to NGOs and enter a draw to win prizes
