Teacher Development Programme ─ Vietnam

 

Educaitonal workers from Hong Kong and Macau visited Vietnam to learn more about how climate change affects the farming activities and livelihood, as well as how Oxfam worked with the government officials and villages to cope with the challenges. We also visited different fair trade partners with a view to understand their principles and missions.

Teachers’ sharing:

  • Oxfam’s staffs were enthusiastic and devoted. The itinerary was planned appropriately. Not only did we meet local villagers and NGO staff, but also a group of passionate teachers from Hong Kong and Macau. Staying whole day in the village was such an unforgettable memory for me.

  • There were different workshops to prepare us well before visiting Vietnam. Supplementary information, which I didn’t even know about as a teacher, was constantly provided during the trip. This has enriched my teaching experience and helped improve my teaching quality.

  • The trip provided me new perspective on world issues. More importantly, I met Oxfam and the other teachers from Hong Kong and Macau, whom I could learn from and share with. Different ideas and views regarding the issues were discussed among us. This meant a lot to me and I valued it a lots.
