Sapa Community Immersion

The Sapa Community Immersion programme is special, unique and invaluable! Our Sapa Pathfinder company is now offering this fantastic learning and growing experience to school students, community groups and any organisation that will benefit from exposure to working as a team, being involved in a community that needs support and developing a sense of awareness regarding their surroundings, environment and the farming people of North Vietnam.

School groups that have already undertaken this fabulous experience have been extremely satisfied with the programme and felt that their students benefited greatly. School groups have travelled from as far as Singapore to take part. The students were challenged in ways that encourage growth and understanding, while fostering skills such as cooperation, commitment and empathy.

Sapa Path Finders will organise the whole trip so that is meets your groups specific needs and we ensure that it runs smoothly so that our clients gain maximum benefit from the experience.
