Beside create new experience to our travelers, Le Velo always want to support our local communities, that is why we created Le Velo foundation. We believe that cycling holiday is the journey that connects all people together, no matter who we are, where we are come from or what we are doing, “We can’t help everyone, but everyone can help someone” – Ronald Reagan

Beside cancer, Vietnam has a highest rate for malaria and petechial fever compared to other South East Asia countries, especially in the Central Highland of Vietnam where 70% are ethenic minority groups people who are living there, unfortunately, they do not get a good support from Vietnamese government in financial speaking, therefore, we decide to cut off apart of profit from our business to helping these people by: donating them some cash, helping them with food, blankets, pillows, medications…in the upcoming rainy days, we hope they will have a better understand how to prevent the diseaseand protect them-selve.
Our Future Projects:
Few projects which we also want to take apart and contribute with such as: cleaning water to the poor people in the Tonle Sap River in Siem Reap, Cambodia, or supporting female enterpreneurs in Nepal and India to start their own businesses,etc. Right now, we want to focus to helping Vietnam first, then other countries.
