Linda, the Chairlady of the Lusumpuko Women’s Club, has drastically improved her English skills since the cooperative started hosting #gadventures #travellers for a local meal. She often takes the lead by conducting an interactive presentation with the groups, informing them on the traditions of #Zimbabwe. But her vision goes beyond her personal growth, she says: “It’s our dream to help more women in our community.”

More delicious food snaps from @emlegreen, this time from our partners at New Hope Training Restaurant in #SiemReap, #Cambodia! The restaurant employs 24 people and supports a school of 1,000 - so when you dine at the restaurant you know your meal is giving back to the community. .

If you’re ever in #HoiAn, don’t miss stopping by our #OodlesofNoodles project, created alongside our partners at @streetsintl! This #foodie tour experience and restaurant helps former street youth gain cooking and hospitality qualifications that help them gain employment in #tourism. Trainees are highly sought after by nearby hotels and tour companies because of the success of the program. .

Making new friends in Toronto! This week, our Development Lead Vanessa teamed up with G Adventures' Mayor to visit our neighbours at @crowdriff to talk about how we’re changing lives together. CrowdRiff’s employees were keen to learn about how #Planeterra is creating opportunities through travel and discuss how travel can be a force for good! We even had a furry friend stop by!

This week, #planeterra has proudly launched our first partnership in #Kyrgyzstan! Ak Orgo is a workshop in Barskoon that aims to preserve unique Kyrgyz crafts while providing meaningful job opportunities in a community suffering from high unemployment. Working with tourism allows them to achieve both cultural and social goals, and we couldn't be more excited to have them as a new partner. To get them ready for travellers, Planeterra invested in a training program as well as infrastructure upgrades.
