Doing good on your travels

    While traveling in Asia, you can visit the following projects identified and closely followed up by our organization. These projects are run by our partner non-profit organizations and are worth including in your travel itinerary. From vocational training restaurants, eco-lodges, agricultural projects, cultural performances to museums these projects are truly supporting local people, not only by providing them with employment opportunities, but also by helping out the most disadvantaged ones. Ask your travel agent to include them in your itineraries. You can directly contact them before reaching your destination.

    You can also check out our recommendations of Restaurants & Shops supporting local & community projects
