New Workshop

Join Us In Hoi An!

Join us for a special half-day experience to learn more about the Lifestart Foundation and to enjoy our traditional art classes!

There are many tours in Hoi An, but what makes us different is that we are a not for profit charity. Our tours give visitors the opportunity to meet local people from disadvantaged situations, many of whom have complex disabilities, and to engage in a respectful and considerate manner. You will receive a unique insight into their needs and learn how you can make a difference.

Your half day includes participation in both classes, a brief video about our workshop and an opportunity for one-on-one dialogue with our members.

All proceeds fund Lifestart Foundation philanthropic projects in Vietnam.
