In China many families live in extreme poverty. This is especially true of the mountain villages of the Guilin/Yangshuo area of Guangxi Province where many farm families live a meager existence on a bit of land. They struggle to pay the school fees for their children to go to the local elementary school.
|V.E.T. is dedicated to placing volunteer English teachers
in these poor schools to expose the students to the English language,
different cultures and the opportunity to mix with people from all over
the world. For a few days, a week, or a month, volunteers to this beautiful
region will have the experience of a lifetime. V.E.T.
will provide free orientation and transportation. For giving a week or
more of your time free accommodation and some meals will be supplied.
The benefits to the children are many, besides being able to pass English
exams to continue school, the ability to speak even a little English and
to feel comfortable around foreigners will assure them of a job in tourist
rich Yangshuo. Even a few hours a week learning Basic English and practicing
what their Chinese English teachers have taught them will help tremendously.
Yangshuo/Guilin is ranked as the second most popular tourism area in China, second only to The Great Wall. Come and give your time to our Chinese children and have a rewarding holiday in one of the most beautiful places in the world.
