The Provincial Government of Northwest Vietnam provides major regional schools for the village people. These schools have very basic facilities but the teachers are very enthusiastic and I was impressed by the way in which children, teenagers and adults all participate in the classroom. I am sure the school would welcome donations of books, writing materials and educational resources. If time permits try to arrange a home stay. A night in the village is a worthwile experience. Our only complaint was that hawkers from the village try to sell to you constantly and they are non-responsive to the phrase "no thank you"!. Treat them with courtesy but if they become overbearing ask your host to send them away. If hawkers bother you then choose a home stay that will not allow them on to the property.
