Saturday Service Community Day May 2019

Service is central to all that we do at UNIS Hanoi and so what better way to celebrate our commitment to a Better World than as a community!

Building on last year’s successful pilot event in May, we are organising two events this year. The goal is for students, faculty, parents and alumni to enjoy giving back to our community together and we hope that you will join in.
