Today, Sapa O’Chau runs on the same social enterprise principles on which it was founded: working hard and giving back to Sapa and all ethnic minorities. It is made up of four inter-connected pieces: the school, the café, the Hmong handicraft store and the tour operation. These are administered by an amazing three-person Board of Management. Numerous partners in Sapa and beyond also provide much needed support.
