Set up in 2009, Streets International runs a Training Centre and Restaurant Café in Hoi An, Vietnam for children from orphaned, trafficked, or other ways disadvantaged backgrounds. To date nearly 250 young trainees have learned hospitalty, culinary, English and life skills lessons there. Meanwhile, Streets has forged partnerships with leading hotels and tour companies, which ensure that 100% of its graduates have secured starting positions.
Streets International also runs two tours - the Oodles of Noodles Tour and the Market Tour. Both are guided by Streets Trainees, taking 10,000 visitors each year to experience authentic culinary experiences, while providing the trainess with excellent opportunities to practise their English and interact with international guests. Where many of these children knew nothing other than the streets, now they make their living sharing their unique knowledge with people visiting Hoi An for the first time.
