On Aug 25, Habitat Vietnam, among 15 local Non-Governmental Organizations (NGO) – both returning and new ones, participated in the NGO Fair 2015. The event was hosted by Canadian International School (CIS) and this is the 3rd time the event organized as well as the 3rd time Habitat Vietnam joined.
Hundreds of CIS Students were encouraged to stop at each display, get more info about who we NGOs are and what we do, and suggest ways they can support. Many among them expressed their interest in Habitat Vietnam and would like to get involved.
At CIS, there are The Global Issue Network clubs which are important parts of CIS school life. They are led by CIS students who are interested in raising awareness and funds for a serious, current global issue, like homelessness, poverty, pollution, child labour, equal rights and animal welfare. And the NGO Fair is organized every August to help with students’ decisions.
Habitat Vietnam has a partnership with The Global Issue Network clubs for several years as we would like to invite more and more students to our activities like the Youth Build. At Habitat for Humanity, we believe together we can build homes, communities and hope!
