Trek Vietnam with Action on Poverty

Trekkers on the road

In remote regions of northern Vietnam, many people live on less than $2 a day and lack access to sanitation, health care and education.

Community-based Tourism (CBT) is a sustainable, ethical solution that helps some of the poorest communities in Vietnam - many of them ethnic minorities - create long-term livelihoods. 

Trek Vietnam is a six-day adventure through the Da Bac region. Trekkers stay in traditional stilt houses with host families to absorb the local culture. They also have the chance to tour Action on Poverty community projects, such as women's finance groups, bee-keeping cooperatives, primary schools and fisheries.

Trekkers raise $500 each to contribute to these life-changing projects, which focus on linking people to the information and resources they need to lift themselves out of poverty.

By sponsoring a trekker, you'll help some of the poorest and most vulnerable poeple in Vietnam build a brighter future. All donations over $2 are tax-deductible.

Community-based Tourism

Trek Vietnam is a CBT project, ensuring socially and environmentally responsible tourism. CBT allows ethnic minorities in remote and underdeveloped regions of Vietnam, such as the Muong people, to increase their income, reap the socio-economic benefits of tourism, and share their language and culture with others.
