  • Note

Sapa is all about terraced fields hiding in the vaporous clouds, the harmonious sound of H’mong traditional pan-pipe in Love Market, the pure atmosphere and lovely local people with unique tradition.
The little pearl called Cat Cat located in the middle of Sapa, has a large H’mong society. It is also the third project of V.E.O. You may ask why we chose Ta Van to be our third project. We still clearly remember those beautiful innocent eyes of them when they asked about painting, fairy tales and other things the first time we saw them. We were deeply touched by their innocence, therefore we badly wanted to bring the knowledge to them so that they can have a better start in life.
With our project “Bring education to Small Village”, V.E.O has brought many education programs for the local children with drawing, English and music lessons.
Our energetic and committed volunteers have built much better road to schools and classroom as well as expanded the library for the local children.
