Life Along the Mekong Delta Homestay Field Program

The Mekong Delta River could very well be deemed the “lifeblood” of south-western Vietnam.

Citizens of the Mekong Delta region not only rely on the river for resources and transportation but

also use it as a means of survival. Fall 2017 Voyagers had the chance to experience river

life in its truest form on the “Life in the Mekong Delta Homestay” field program.

Not only did students ride bikes and boats through the Mekong Delta, but they also visited local

businesses, helped prepare meals with their host family, and learned about the services that

NGO Heifer International provides to the citizens of Vietnam. Take a look at their journey as

students venture through the Delta!
