One trip can change a life, one life can change the world. 

Take your 

Changemaking Journey to Vietnam! 

Spend 10 days in Vietnam learning how people around the world are creating positive change. 



Our Global Changemaker Program gives young Australians the opportunity to take their changemaking journey international.

See first hand the many ways people fight for what is right and change what is not in very different circumstances to ours in Australia. 

Spend ten days making new friends, eating new foods, travelling a new country and becoming the best leader and changemaker you can be! 

What's involved in the Global Changemaker Program? 

Travel and explore Northern Vietnam! Immerse yourself in a new culture, experience global changemaking and develop your own changemaking skills. 

Take on exciting team challenges, stay in local home-stays and visit three beautiful areas of northern Vietnam.

Spend five days learning first-hand how social impact organisation, Red Lotus, is connecting an international community of changemakers and how Helping Hands Vietnam is empowering an entire community. 

And through it all train in Sonder Youth workshops to become a better leader, changemaker and global citizen.
