Vietnam has become a five-star destination for both tourism and business purposes, and no wonder. Pristine white sand beaches, lovely terraced rice fields in the highlands, and world-renowned national parks, including Halong Bay, all contribute to making Vietnam one of the most beautiful countries in the world. The people are winsome and easy to like, friendly and hardworking. Their hard work has enabled Vietnam to progress dramatically from poverty to prosperity and on the political world scene as well. An opponent of the United States a half-century ago, Vietnam now welcomes Americans with arms opened wide. The team enjoys a special relationship with the country and is recognized as one of the top NGOs serving in Vietnam.
In this job, you will work three to four times a week at the team's Vietnam office for 20 hours editing and writing correspondences and documents in English and some administrative work and travel. The other 20 hours a week, you will be involved in staff development training, Bible studies, learning Vietnamese, and being in a community with other resident team members. It is an ideal embedded situation where you will have opportunities to befriend Vietnamese staff and local people in your neighborhood.
