Better Life Vietnam (BLV) is a non-profit working to improve education conditions for underprivileged children and youth in Vietnam. Better Life Vietnam has launched the “Better Employment Opportunities for Disadvantaged Youth” project. This program aims to empower youth with disabilities to feel more confident in their everyday life. Better Life Vietnam partners with Thuong Thuong Handmade Social Enterprise, an organization that offers vocational training and has created jobs for 15 youths with disabilities and incurable diseases. BLV will help expand this effort by recruiting and training more youth with disabilities to make handmade quilling paper products, and assist them in establishing stable income by selling these products in market. We teach them the knowledge and skills to produce a variety of quilling paper souvenir crafts, including pen boxes, tissue boxes, earrings, jewelry boxes, bookmarks, greeting cards, landscape pictures and more. These quilling handicrafts are more than beautiful, they are helping make a difference in the lives of others.
Volunteers: 1 needed
1-5 hours per week / 8 weeks
