Volunteer in Danang

Hello, can anyone give some recommendations about reputable community projects that are looking for volunteers in the Danang area for up to 2 months. Two people in their mid 50's - eg business administration, agriculture, nursing backgrounds.

East Meets West has many different non profit projects such as dental, clean water etc...I worked with them on several occasions with the dental team. Marvelous people and very worthwhile cause. They appreciate the help also. Eastmeetswest.org

Do they charge? My friends are specifically looking for ones that you don't have to pay which seems to contradict the purpose of volunteering.

I paid through a company the first time but after i befriended the staff I didn't......check with them....they're very open and easy to talk to.

Hi,

I'm not sure what you would be interested in doing but Hue Help is in Hue, 3 hours north of Danang, and they have a free volunteer programme there where you teach lifeskills and English at NGOs, social enterprises, and children's shelters.
