Social challenge:Our social impacts are braving people the lifestyle of Reduce-Reuse-Recycle making our earth greener with an unpolluted environment affecting both mental and physical health along with creating a space for people coming to relax without any distance among others. For generations, enjoying tea has become a feature of Vietnamese culture. However, recently, the trend of using foreign tea has increased rapidly, thus significantly affecting the position of pure Vietnamese tea, putting pressure on Vietnamese tea enterprises. Therefore, we want to promote the Vietnamese originated tea commercial, take full advantages of the benefits from tea and tea grounds to improve the competitive efficiency for small-scale producers, creating handicrafted products. Meanwhile minimizing the problem of environmental pollution. In addition, the social issue that we aim at is also to solve employment problems, provide vocational training for vulnerable people, particularly the hearing impaired because we realize that they are completely capable of participating in the community and the job market to generate income for themselves to lead meaningful lives. At first stage, our project focuses on scaling up in the North of Vietnam, increasing scale in tea growing areas.
