How can you support
YESD Responsible Travel is a part of YESD Social Enterprise, was established in 2015 by three friends. Without any sponsorship and donation, its three founders used their own pocket money with $1500 each to rent office and to pay administrative fees. In the nearly 3 first year, YESD had not brought any benefits, which means we worked without salary at that time. Thanks to YESD’s volunteers, recently we have built a good website and marketing tools so that you can find us and book tours with us. Thanks to YESD’s customers who understood our working motto and decided to book tours with YESD. And thanks to ERASMUS+ programs, YESD’s people can enhance their knowledge and strengthen their professional skills to develop YESD further.
As our promise of a social enterprise, we commit to pay back to the local communities. With your support, we believe that more disadvantaged communites in Vietnam will get benefit from all of us. You will receive more than you give by: Booking tours with us, cooperating with us in community development projects, or donating directly to YESD’s community fund to donate a cow for a poor family or community development programs.
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.
