Layos Camp has been looking to participate in a social project for years. In 2013, after a trip to Vietnam, we finally found what we were looking for. We established a great friendship with the Hmong community in the Hau-Thao village in the Sapa valley. Our team organized four different stays with local families to make the project come to life.
The Hmong ethnic group is the largest minority group in the Sapa Valley. Their main activities are cultivating rice and making cloth from hemp. During the stay, visitors learn about their unique way of life in the village and immerse themselves in the special culture of the place.
By undertaking a trip like this one, young people learn not only practical skills, but also social ones. They learn to overcome difficulties that may arise due to cultural barriers and come back home feeling enriched.
