Dining for Women Travel Program
“The experience was worth its weight in gold!” – 2010 Kenya traveler
We welcome you to join us on one of our highly-regarded travel adventures! We have just added a trip in February of 2014 to return to Vietnam and Cambodia. Our 2013 trip to Vietnam was a wonderful experience and we want to extend the opportunity to more travelers. Read our blog from this trip.
For the remainder of 2013, we are still accepting wait list applications for our journey to India.
Many factors go into planning these trips and itinerary details may change.
Participant selection process: Due to the popularity of the DFW travel program, if trips fill beyond capacity, priority will be given to those who dedicate many volunteer hours to help DFW operate. Therefore, there are three tiers for selection. The first tier is for those who volunteer on a national level; the second is leaders of DFW chapters; the third is chapter members. Priority is given to those who have not been on a trip in the past.
If you have further questions about the travel program, or for more info on any of these trips, please email email@example.com
Looking forward to traveling with you soon!
Patricia Andersson and the DFW Travel Team
Come join us on a journey to Cambodia and Vietnam!
We will spend time with Children of Vietnam - a two-time recipient of DFW grants, and meet single mothers who received funds to create a path out of poverty. In small groups, we'll visit these courageous and resilient women in their homes and newly-established businesses. In Cambodia, we will meet with DFW-funded shelter counselors from Lotus Outreach, learn about the issue of trafficking and hear first-hand accounts of their struggles and successes in their work to rescue and rehabilitate girls caught up in the sex trade.
In Hanoi, we’ll visit a group of foster girls and take them “out on the town!” "
Along the way, we'll see some of the world's wonders: Angkor Wat and the magnificent temple of Banteay Srei, the "Citadel of Women" dedicated to Shiva. Southeast Asia's largest freshwater lake and people who live in a floating village. The 1,000 year-old capital of Hanoi with its French Colonial charm - and millions of motorcycles. An overnight cruise on beautiful Halong Bay. And the UNESCO world-heritage site of Hoi An, where a cooking lesson will be just one unforgettable experience. A video of the 2013 journey will give you a taste of the experience! Download a flyer for more details.
