About the project
Our Community-based Tourism (CBT) project in Da Bac, Vietnam, is an award-winning enterprise that helps ethnic minority communities develop new business opportunities and improve their incomes.
CBT focuses on empowering remote communities, especially women, to develop tourism products such as homestays, guided tours, and traditional arts and crafts. CBT brings much-needed income to disadvantaged communities while helping to preserve and share their unique cultures.
A portion of CBT profits are reinvested in the community to fund development projects, such as clean water systems and road upgrades.
