    Description

    We are a young, dynamic social enterprise offering education, employment and support to the local ethnic minority communities of Sapa. We are proud to be the first ethnic minority owned and run international tour agency in Vietnam, and to provide free boarding accommodation for disadvantaged ethnic minority highschool students.
    We also have a small cafe which is developing into a vibrant hub for cultural exchange.

    We have several projects currently in operation; after school enrichment lessons, literacy classes for adults, IT classes, as well as conversational English for adults.

    We have several exciting new projects coming up - development of traditional fashion designs, planning a new foundation school, plans to work collaboratively with local businesses, creating new and sustainable employment opportunities as well as cultural preservation projects.
