“One thing I know: the only ones among you who will truly be happy are those who have sought and found how to serve.” – Dr. Albert Schweitzer (1875-1965), Theologian
"Growing up, we realized sometimes we had taken things for granted. Having always been a passionate person about charitable works and community services, before i Tour was formed, I vowed that one day if I could do something back for the community, I would make it part of my career. And when i Tour was formed, together with Hao, Co-founder, we have been finally able to incorporate our philanthropic acts into what we do! The best part of it is that our guests can be a part of it, too." Alexis, Co-founder.
i Tour Vietnam’s GIVE BACK Program holds the belief that community will always be in our hearts. We believe in giving back to the communities we serve, not just with resources but also with responsibility and time. Through our GIVE BACK Program and i Volunteer Expedition, we support children’s health and education, hunger prevention, and environmental sustainability. We envision a future where children are healthy and can succeed while all are living on a healthier planet. Because the way we see it, giving back also means looking ahead. Visit GALLERY
For every tour booked, guests have the ability to decide 1 of 4 resources to donate to a charitable organization and GIVE BACK at our expenses:
1. Donate a t-shirt to orphans
2. Feed a meal to the homeless
3. Donate a new set of school supply to orphans
4. Plant a tree
Through the partnership with the HELPING HANDS (Humanitarian Relief Foundation), run by Henry & Linh Heirigs, we hope to extend help and reach more underprivileged children from the other remote towns in Vietnam. To follow more projects or contact, please click HERE.
Can't decide on one of the above causes? You can also opt to make a monetary contribution. All donations will be used to purchase necessities for the locals; this will ensure that your donation will directly benefit the community.
i Volunteer Expedition
At i Tour Vietnam, we emphasize individuality and we strongly believe that each volunteer will contribute his or her own talent and shine in the Vietnamese community. Best of all, volunteer-enthusiasts can join i Tour Vietnam for a more personal two-hour excursion by visiting an orphanage for underprivileged youths. Volunteers will interact and engage in recreational activities with the children.
We would like to say upfront that i Volunteer Expedition is NOT a tour, but it is a volunteer act for a charitable cause.
By booking on this i Volunteer Expedition, you are consenting to a background check prior to taking part in the charitable event with the orphaned children. This requires a 5-day advance booking and is subject to the approval with the orphanage/organization. You will get a confirmation email if approved/declined. Please note that all participants will be required to submit a photocopy of their passports prior to the event and that this will be obtained on our records.
Price: USD $20 for 2 hours (5 days advance booking required and subject to approval)
- Pick-up & drop-off at your hotel (complimentary for Districts 1, 3, & 5 in Saigon)
- A charity of your choice through our GIVE BACK Program
Note: The fee is to cover the processing fee for the background check. The transportation costs by motorbike, gas, driver, and a charity of your choice are at i Tour’s expenses. We want you to experience that a little does go a long way and how important it is for us that we support the local community.
