Give back to the Luang Prabang community and contribute to positive social change while taking part in a time-honored Lao spiritual tradition. Meet the team at Khaiphaen restaurant, a local social enterprise supported by our philanthropic project that provides the city’s youths with employment and training opportunities. Enjoy a welcome drink while hearing the personal stories of the trainees and what it means for them to be part of the team. Get involved in making traditional Lao rice treats and wrap them in banana leaves in preparation for tomorrow’s almsgiving ceremony with monks. Stay for a delicious lunch full of traditional Lao flavors made by the restaurant’s staff. Your experience today goes to supporting the team at Khaiphaen and contributes to a brighter future for young Lao people.

Option: Make an advance contribution to the Futures Project through AKP Philanthropy, which helps Khaiphaen trainees secure reliable job placements after completing their restaurant training and give them a crucial boost towards a life of independence. A contribution of US $500 ensures job placement for one trainee, who you can meet on your travels in Luang Prabang. For more information or to get involved, contact us at thailand@akorndmc.com.
