Global Volunteer members' memorable experience in Bat Trang Village
After 2 weeks volunteering as English teachers for Blind-Link, Keith and Kathy had a nice trip to Bat Trang traditional pottery village with teaching assistants and therapists of Omamori Spa.
Taking a bus to Bat Trang, the members of Global Volunteer and Blind-Link’s therapists and staff had a walk around the pottery market. They were taken aback by big and beautiful vases there and a diversity of goods displayed at kiosks. Keith and Kathy expressed their appreciation to Vietnamese artists who created those delicate and unique products, picked several products to bring home as souvenirs.
After that, all enjoyed a memorable experience as a pottery artist. They had a try at doing some vases themselves from making a product frame, decorating to baking, and then got their own products.
The volunteers shared that they had a meaningful time in Vietnam with their organization, with Blind-Link and Omamori Spa, and also their studious students; they hoped to have chances to come back to Vietnam, enjoy an interesting experience here and see how their students improve.
