Planning is well advanced for our 2018 Sponsors' Tour departing in August 2018 and, if it is anything like our previous tours, will be filled with interesting experiences and provide you with many wonderful memories. Some of the highlights we have in store include:
- Visit Vung Tau and the sites from Australia's involvement during the Vietnam war.
- Visit the coastal town of Mui Ne on route to the seaside town of Nha Trang. Then to the mountains of Da Lat, the flower and vegetable bowl of Vietnam.
- Down through the mountains to Ho Chi Minh City. Cu Chi tunnels are a must see, perhaps fire the famous AK47, and of course whilst travelling you visit all seven different orphanages, pagodas or centres run by the Catholic Church and get to meet the child you are sponsoring.
- Then if you want to extend the trip by three days we visit the village of Suong's.
Who We Are
DOVES is a volunteer-run Australian registered not-for-profit organisation. Our primary goal is to provide disadvantaged & orphaned children in Vietnam an opportunity of an education that, without ongoing support, they would likely not recieve.
DOVES is administered by a board of dedicated volunteers. Their role is to source and manage the sponsorships and donations required to ensure the DOVES action plan is carried out such that the children and orphans receive the best possible outcomes.
What We Do
In partnership with a number of pagodas and orphanages in Vietnam, child sponsorships are used to cover the cost of sponsored childrens' education needs. Additionally, donations received are used to fund many special projects to benefit the children we support.
How You Can Help
Donating to DOVES is a secure, easy and very rewarding way to improve the lives of disadvantaged and orphan children.
