COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT PROJECTS (CDPs)
Our Volunteer Projects offer individuals and groups the opportunity to contribute towards the sustainable development of communities in northern Vietnam. At present, YESD has project sites in Ha Giang, Lao Cai and Yen Bai provinces. We want to make sure that our projects deliver positive long term results. We work together with the community and volunteers to structure an itinerary and formulate outcomes according to everyone’s needs. These projects provide participants with an opportunity to work together with the community, to solve problems, improve team work and make new friends! Please peruse the projects below and get in touch with us for more information.
WHY TRAVEL WITH YESD?
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!
Tours that translate
10% of all profits from our tours go towards a community fund. This money allows us to make infrastructure improvements and provide other important resources to those in need.
