Roadmonkey, a California based philanthropic
adventure travel company, and Catalyst Foundation have joined forces
to build a sustainable income-generating garden in Rach Gia Vietnam!
||Our destination for the hands-on
volunteer project is Rach Gia, a provincial capital on Vietnam's
western Delta coastline. We will work alongside a local community
of ethnically Khmer adults and children in the Mekong Delta, to
build a sustainable, income-generating community garden and rice
paddy for this deeply impoverished village living on Vietnam's social
and economic margins.
It will be four days of intense, hands-on work
to create this sustainable, community building project. The work
will be done with involvement of the local community.
The Roadmonkey project will be in partnership
with The Catalyst Foundation, which Roadmonkey worked with in
November 2010 to build a playground in Rach Gia.
- Catalyst Foundation helps build communities
in Vietnam to fight trafficking.
They are passionate about utilizing a community
development approach to address poverty, meaning they work collectively
with local communities in raising awareness, providing access
to education, increasing economic opportunities, and generating
a sense of empowerment.
Their goal within each target community is
twofold: to equip families with the tools to get out of poverty
and to raise awareness of human trafficking at the grassroots
level in order to strengthen community protective mechanisms.
