Communications and Project Development Intern at NGO

In the rural province of Quang Nam, where this NGO mainly operates, a vast amount of families survive on just $2 per day. In order to alleviate poverty in this region, the primary focus should be laid on providing education, healthcare and aid to the children who live in these conditions and provide them with the adequate resources and knowledge needed to build a more sustainable future.
