Under Erasmus+ framework

More details here:

Capacity building program that creates opportunities for the young people to volunteer in Asian countries in innovative socially-driven projects and for the organisations to develop and deepen their knowledge and experiences in the volunteering management.EuroAsia Volunteering Assistance Programme is the name of a project that indicates a completely new beginning. For the first time ever, we are expanding our horizons and making a connection to Southeast Asia countries. Together with our European partner organizations from Slovakia, France and Czech Republic, we decided that now is the perfect moment to start a project with countries from Southeast Asia (Vietnam, Cambodia, and Thailand) and enable the sharing of good practices and voluntary services. Included in this project are some non-formal education training for capacity building of the youth organizations staff with necessary skills and capacities, as well as a list of crucial requirements that need to be met for hosting and sending volunteers in Asia.

We give local people employment, income and learning opportunities so they are directly involved in your tourism experience. Our guides and hosts will give you a special insight into culture and life in Vietnam.


We aim to minimise the negative impacts of tourism on the environment and the local community while contributing positively to local economies. We don’t just talk responsible tourism, we act!
