Last stop for the Our Day Project: Vietnam and Laos

Kelly and I have just arrived home from our trip to Vietnam, Laos, Timor Leste and outback Australia, where kids involved in ChildFund Connect have been making videos of their lives for the Our Day Project.

We’ve been amazed by the creativity of the kids and can’t wait to see their footage come to life on the big screen. We’ll be launching the film at events in each of the participating communities on Universal Children’s Day (20 November).

On this trip, we really noticed such a difference in the kids. Most of them were so shy when we first met them. Now they’ve really opened up and are excited about contributing their ideas and videos, and seeing what life is like for kids in other countries.

Truong, who has just joined the ChildFund Connect team in Vietnam, says: “One great thing about our project is that we can help build children’s confidence and help them to think creatively. It is so exciting for the children because it gives them a chance to communicate with other children outside their country.”

Check out our latest video from our last stop in Vietnam and Laos.
