Reaching Out to the Community
- Half Day
Today, leave the hotel at 08:30 or 13:30 and meet with the representative of Reaching Out, an NGO established in 2000. Get an insight into their efforts in providing opportunities for people with disability to learn skills and gain meaningful employment. Visit their workshop located at an old merchant house for a join-in tour and get a glimpse into how this NGO helps the disabled to integrate fully with their communities and lead independent and fulfilling lives.

It is time to take a seat and experience one of Vietnam’s traditional arts with the disadvantaged artisans by making a foldable Hoi An lantern. This is an opportunity to turn their creative ideas into a functional work of art. Learn how to create a one-of-a-kind lantern in which folds flat and can be easily taken home as a souvenir.

Then take a few steps to the tea house nearby. Set up as part of a social enterprise program to provide employment and empowerment for people with physical disabilities, this pretty, old-world tea house is a peaceful haven with equally warm waiting staff, most of whom suffer from hearing or speech impairments. Learn about the traditional tea ceremony then enjoy tea tasting in the peaceful setting. A little tea bag full of scent is given to take home at the end of the trip.

Be transferred back to the hotel at 11:00 or 16:00.
