Sapa O’Chau put the money earned back into the community through projects such as providing winter clothes to children and improvements to the village schools. Later Shu organized informal English night classes for young tour guides. Today Sapa O’Chau has over 70 students (35 of which live at the Centre) and runs classes in English and Vietnamese literacy, vocational training, traditional song & dance and arts and crafts.
