The best thing you can do right now to support the project is threefold, and if you've ever listened to any podcast before, I'm sure you'll be familiar with what I'm about to say!

- Hmong Vegetarian Cooking Class — And here's the link to the cooking class that features in the video. It's also in Luang Prabang and was great too. We got to choose our dishes and picked the ones we were least likely to cook again. This meant we cooked with rattan and banana flower! The family you cook with are very friendly.
