We operate in developing countries and we help artisans/craftsmen to monetize their skills better by linking them up with tourists. Entrepreneurs, artisans, craftsmen and anyone with a skill can apply to join our program. We then use our web platform and our local distribution network to advertise these services to tourists. Many of the people who have a skill are often exploited or are starved of opportunities. Through this initiative, they are not only able to obtain additional income through teaching tourists or locals who are interested, but also showcase their skills and the traditional crafts of the country to others from around the world. This also helps to foster a connection between locals and people all over the world. We also work with various NGOs to provide employment opportunities to the underprivileged and those in poverty. Through working as a facilitator and translating for the tourists, the facilitators will be able to rehabilitate into society and obtain an additional income source while being exposed to people all over the world. They will also receive training on communications and hospitality. We are a wholly owned subsidiary of Gazaab Social Ventures, a social venture fund investing in developing country social enterprises. We are headquartered in Singapore with operations in Nepal, Kathmandu and Phnom Penh, Cambodia. We are rapidly expanding to other cities in Nepal and Cambodia as well. « less

Bring plenty of small change because beggars are pretty thick on the ground here, even early in the morning. Take it one at a time visiting inside the temple, as there are plenty... more »
