    Description

    Hello, we are Nic and Lan, and we run a small handcraft jewelery shop in Luang Prabang and we live in very beautiful locations in luangprabang. About us, we from a Khamu tribe, and grew up in Luang Prabang. We opened the shop 5 years ago, and now we employ many local people to make jewellery. We have a lot of different artists all from Luang Prabang who sell their work through the shop.

    We want some people around to help with customers ( and making a new sign for example), maybe help with advertising, and teaching English to my cousins.

    Apart from that, there is some general, light cleaning. We can cook together.

    You'll be welcome to propose new ideas for our shop , we're open to everything you can offer.

    Note: that we can host only one . Because it is small place and the work is not very intense.
    ( we require a minimum 2 week stay )
