Organizing summer classes at Nguyen Dinh Chieu primary school in Ia Rve border commune, Ea Sup district, Dak Lak province, young volunteers help local pupils review what they have learned during the last academic year. The lessons are accompanied with games making children enjoy their time with the volunteers. Ms. Cam Thi Nga, of Hamlet 4, whose child is participating in the class, said parents are happy because their children love going to class with the young volunteers.

Ms. Nga said: “My child said she likes the young volunteers very much. They teach and play with the children. The activities are fun and helpful for the children.”
