Rise early to the aromas of freshly cooked breakfast and mist over the stream running through the village. As you awaken today you will begin to feel the remoteness of your surroundings and appreciate the simplicity of village life. Go to your service site to assist the community with an ongoing community-initiated project. All service projects have been designed by a community-based association to either support the protection of the area’s natural and cultural resources, create alternative income opportunities, or improve the infrastructure of the surrounding villages.
After completing your service work for the day, you will have the opportunity to explore the surrounding rice fields or simply relax and enjoy the scenery before dinnertime. Join your group for a post-service debrief in the evening, discussing what you experienced and learned through hands-on work in the community. On the final night in the village, end your time with a community celebration showcasing traditional Muong culture through song and dance.
