Vayando is an introduction to a community, and a way to meet great people and better understand local livelihoods.
Expect a personal day-in-the-life, and less of a guided tour. Know that some experiences will be more structured than others. Realize that there may be a bit of a language barrier.
Go with it or book a local interpreter too! Be curious and open to the day developing organically!

To identify entrepreneurs, Vayando partners with reputable field partner organizations (for example, NGOs focused on community development) in each country where we operate. These partners identify motivated entrepreneurs in the communities where they work and support them in creating a profile on Vayando.
This provides quality assurance for both Vayando and the traveler, and is an opportunity for our field-partners to increase impact of their organization. Tech savvy entrepreneurs can apply directly to Vayando to create a profile and be marketed. Entrepreneurs who sign up directly are vetted through a series of Skype interviews, referrals, and social media presence.
Vayando works closely with these Entrepreneurs to ensure quality and fit.
