Hoi An, Vietnam
Many people with disabilities live with pain and other side effects that restrict their opportunities and heavily impact their quality of life. Our ground partners work with adults living with disabilities to ensure that they have their own sustainable income and are provided with wheelchairs and three-wheeled motorbikes that allow for greater independence and mobility. Proceeds from the social enterprise provide the salary of a physiotherapist that works in the Lifestart Disability Community Centre. The professional provides one-on-one assessments and supervised rehabilitation plans. G Adventures travellers experience a handicraft lesson in making traditional silk lanterns, taught by people with disabilities that have benefitted form the program.
