Friend of SCC summer 2013

Philip Genochio

Having been living in Saigon for a while I was keen to give something back to local people. I’m not wealthy by any stretch but I am lucky enough to have quite a bit of spare time. Wanting to put this to use, to make a contribution to the community, I looked for an NGO that I could relate to. One that I felt was making a tangible difference and one that was run by the locals, rather than a organisation that existed simply to boost someone’s ego.

SCC stood out for me as it was recommended by several people (word of mouth – always the best marketing tool!) and, as a frequent visitor to the Mekong Delta, I felt drawn to their work in the region. I also was reassured by the fact that it’s a long-standing organisation with a professional set-up. So when they asked me to help out with the Cyclo Challenge event this year I was more than happy to oblige. Spending time with the SCC staff during the build-up to the big day showed me just what an enthusiastic, committed and hard working group they. And on the day itself everyone worked endlessly to ensure the event was a success on all levels. What a team!

Since then I’ve agreed to help the staff with their English, and I drop in to the offices regularly to talk with the guys. It’s a pleasure spending time with them; such a friendly group who are eager to improve their English skills – and help me improve my Vietnamese. They’re definitely ahead of me on the second language front!

I first visited Vietnam in 2009 and, like many visitors, was struck by the energy of the both the people and the country as a whole. At the time I didn’t feel I would definitely be returning but I think I knew, deep down, that it wouldn’t be my only visit. So in 2011, finding myself at something of a crossroads, I took the turning marked ‘Saigon’. Now, having lived here for 2 years, I’m delighted to be able to work with an organisation at a local level and feel that I’m making a (small) contribution.

I hope I’m able to help SCC for a long time to come and meet more Friends of SCC along the way. Who knows, maybe we’ll help each other peddle up the Hai Van Pass later in the year?
