General Information

Sapa O'Chau - CentreSapa O’Chau is reliant on volunteer support to sustain its teaching requirements and facilitate administration. Volunteering at Sapa O’Chau is an experience where you can transform the lives of others and your own. We aim to make sure our volunteers get as much out of the experience as the people and communities they help.

You can join our program from as little as one day to many weeks (although longer stays are encouraged if possible). Your schedule will be individually organised and your skills utilised. The minimum age for volunteering is 18 (younger volunteers must be accompanied by an adult). There are no specific qualifications needed to join us in Sapa. However, volunteers are expected to be flexible, patient, and respectful, and possess a passion and love for children and young adults.

Sapa O'Chau - CentreAccommodation will be in a local guest house or hotel in Sapa town and during the weekends you can visit the Sapa O’Chau homestay in Lao Chai village. We can help you to find accommodation that suits your needs and short term prices start from as little as $5 per night.

Volunteers are welcome to join the students for a basic H’mong meal at the Centre, visit one of the many restaurants in town, or eat tasty and economical food in the market. It is very easy to find great food to eat in Sapa and recommendations can be given or you can discover them by yourself. Sapa caters to all budgets in regard to meals (you can eat for as little as one dollar a meal) or up to as much as you wish to spend.

We want your experience in Sapa to be as special as possible and you will be welcomed as an important member of the Sapa O’Chau family.
