    Host Organization

    ROP (Roots of Peace)

    ROP began working in Vietnam in 2010. Almost four decades after the conclusion of the Vietnam War, the people of Vietnam are still feeling the effects of the conflict in the form of unexploded munitions. More bombs were dropped on Vietnam than in all of WWII and over a third did not detonate. Partnering with the local government and demining organizations like the Mines Advisory Group, ROP is applying its Mines to Vines model to clear farms that are still contaminated. But even without the threat of unexploded bombs, which is still not solved, Vietnam is without the resources to achieve recovery, an obstacle that the Vines aspect of the ROP Model addresses.

    Many farmers in Vietnam lack the proper resources to grow their products effectively and efficiently, and many are unaware of farming practices that could increase their yield. Furthermore many farmers resort to unsustainable farming practices like over-fertilization and excessive use of pesticide in an effort to make enough to feed their families. To address these concerns, ROP assists farmers with training programs, resource assistance throughout the growing process, and the introduction of well-suited, high-demand crops such Cacao and Pepper. The results have been phenomenal with many farmers seeing dramatic increases in their income.

Main tasks:
  1. Observe and support the staff in daily activities at the farm, including: organizing events and activities for groups of children from different schools; taking care of the crops and livestock at the farm
  2. Contribute ideas to improve the quality of the farm services
  3. Learn about how agritourism is run in Vietnam and propose appropriate changes
  4. Deliver English lessons to the staff of the farm in free time
