Giving Back

We believe our organisation has a responsibility to give back to the local community. By staying, dining or trekking, we show you how easy it is to travel with generosity and to give back.

Ma Cha School Support

Ma Cha is located 7 km from Sapa town, is the most impoverished area of the Sapa region. There are over 1,000 Black H’mong ethnic minority people living in and around Ma Cha village. Our organsiation supports the local Ma Cha school and the entire school population of 140 children from kindergarten to 5th grade. Each year we ask for donations of second hand warm clothing, soap to educate the children to wash their hands and school stationery products for the students.

Our Team

We provide a nurturing and supportive environment for our team of underprivileged youth and Ethnic minority people. Our mission is to provide our people with vocational training, support and encouragement to give them and their families an opportunity for a better life.

Through out this website we have listed some great ways to ensure Sapa benefits from your visit and your generosity. The Village Noshery provides many opportunities for our guests to participate in our community projects. Here are a couple of initiatives.

Friday Soup Kitchen at Ma Cha School

Every Friday at Ma Cha School our organisation provides a hearty meal for each of our 140 school students. We encourage our guests to join us on a trek to Ma Cha and Taphin where we drop into the school along the trek to feed the children.  From 10:00am – 11:00am our staff team sets up an outdoors soup kitchen in the playground of Ma Cha school with an aim to provide a nutritious meal for each student.  An important focus of the Friday Soup Kitchen is on exercise and hygiene as we play games and teach the students the importance of personal hygiene instructing them how to wash their hands with soapy water.

Donations Collection

TET Lifestyle Collection supports the local Ma Cha school. There are 140 children in the school ranging from kindergarten to 5th grade.
Please help us to donate Children’s warm clothes, hand soap to educate the children to wash their hands and school stationery products.  All these items can be dropped off in one of our properties in Sapa or Hanoi.  Each week we ship the donations to Ma Cha School in Sapa and post updates to our website, twitter and face book.
