Once upon a time, Jeanette and I were shopping in Vietnam. We wandered into a shop that sold gorgeous quilts, however we were somewhat laden with stuff at that point and carrying a quilt for the next month was out of the question. I did catch a look at the tag to see who made them so I could look it up later. I’m really glad I did. Vietnam Quilts  not only make a beautiful product, but was founded in 2001 as an income generation project for rural women enabling them to remain in their communities and care for their children and families. They are a non-profit program within a French – Belgian NGO, Vietnam Plus employing women in Duc Linh, in the Binh Thuan province and Long My in Hau Giang (the Delta).

Friends The Restaurant

Friends the Restaurant is a venture of Mith Samlanh Friends, one of my favorite organizations – I aspire to working with them in the future. Aside from the fact they do such amazing things for street kids and their families, the food and service was excellent – best meal we had in Cambodia. Learn more about Mith Samlanh Friends and they awesome things they do.
