2019 Summer Projects Announcement

SEALNet Project Vietnam 2019
Full Bottle. Fewer Bottles.

Hanoi, Vietnam
July 8-21, 2019

SEALNet Project Vietnam 2019 (PV19) is a lively 2-week service leadership program that focuses on the children residing on the banks of the Red River in Hanoi, Vietnam. The project aims to equip them with practical tools and solution-oriented lessons that focus on plastic pollution so that they may acquire the will and the skills to solve community problems that include, but are not limited to, environmental issues. All participants, including mentors and mentees, will sharpen their leadership abilities through the lessons and, while doing so, interpret the interconnectedness between what human beings consume-dispose and the ecosystem. PV19 will end our unique program with a musical performance to fundraise and support our local partners, the S-house Project, and the local SEALNet Hanoi Club.
