Travel Better | 8 sustainable social enterprises that support the disadvantaged
While we travel and explore in Southeast Asia and the world, it is important to remember that every dollar does count. "Every dollar spent is a vote for a better future". So let's make sure you are buying souvenirs that you will actually use, not something that will end up in the bin; eat at places who support health care scenes or doubles up as hospitality training; and sleep in locally run accommodations who also use their business for good.
Next time you are in a major city (Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh, Bali, Chiang Mai, Siem Reap), take the time to research some epic places doing their part to make the world a better place. Check out seven enterprises Chickenfeet has patronised and approved.
Supporting minority tribes near a town called A Louie, Hope Centre provides vocational training and work opportunities for disabled and disadvantaged people. A great place to buy handicrafts.
Team Chickenfeet are putting together "Good Guides" for major cities within Southeast Asia that will point you in the right direction for social enterprises that give back. Eat, sleep and shop with a good conscience. Subscribe now.
