Youth Employment and Society Development (YESD) is a social enterprise specializing in community development. The foundation is started by friends - Tuyet Han, Trang Thu Mai and, Hong Tuoi Vu - in their common desire to offer responsible travel experiences in Vietnam and assist local communities in return. YESD was established in 2015, but we have implemented tourism projects since 2014 and have impacted the lives of people in remote areas across Northern Vietnam.
Our initiatives are aimed at creating job opportunities and, in turn, lessen poverty. We also offer an authentic travel experience to individuals from around the globe while striving to preserve the country’s traditional cultural values. We push for these goals through a range of programs supported by volunteers worldwide. They assist with various activities and immerse in Vietnamese way of life by staying with a local host family.
