Sports Camp - March 2014

April 16, 2014

With three trips in 18 months, the Sports Team continues to work in Bac Ha and Sapa Districts in Lao Cai Province. Chad Griffin, the trip leader and 4-time visitor, came to Vietnam with three new team members. They have a love for sports and physical exercise and bring this love to the kids in these mountainous areas, where poor conditions and limited resources have resulted in few avenues of entertainment and exercise. The team-teaches a new sport on each trip to the children and the physical education teachers in the area. It is exciting to see the kids playing these sports on their own on future trips into these communities. The kids are very talented and love learning new skills.

Past teams have taught baseball and basketball. This time it was football (USA soccer). While many of the kids have played this sport, it gave the team a chance to refine their skills and work with them on team cooperation, refining their skills and competing against others.


Together the Sports Team and the teachers in Sapa and Bac Ha help the students form soccer teams and arranged a tournament. All the students were excited to compete.

Nam Mon, Bac Ha District - The Winner.

With summer coming, this is a great game for the students to play in the fields near their home. They will have more opportunities to compete with different schools and try their best to become the soccer player of their dreams, or just to have fun with friends!

Come and join with us to make dreams come true for students in the mountainous areas in Vietnam.
