About
Reaching Out is a social enterprise, training and employing persons with disabilities. Our artisans create beautiful gifts of high quality from tea ware patterned after that used by the Imperial family in Hue to elegant table ware and bedspreads of colourful silks. Our silver jewellery is designed in-house by our staff and made right on the premises. Customers are invited to visit the workshop which is right behind the retail store to watch how their purchases have been made. Our staff are willing to answer your questions and of course can tell you the details of the processes by which your gifts are crafted. They will also proudly show you to our Tea House, where you can experience a cup of coffee or tea, served in the traditional Vietnamese manner by our speech and hearing impaired staff.

A lovely place with a great philosophy of inclusion and respect. Our hostess Ni was so funny and kind. We met lovely people who served us delicious drinks and cookies and taught us how to make traditional lanterns. There were some gorgeous home wares and jewellery, but be aware they close on Tuesdays! ( we missed out on buying some lovely gifts).

We visited Reaching Out Arts and Crafts while visiting Hoi An in December 2019. We bought a small number of attractive items - candle holders, bowls and chop sticks.

All of the items are beautifully crafted and have been a pleasure to use. We have recently purchased more items from Reaching Out through their website and these arrived safely in Australia by air mail within 13 days.

I strongly recommend a visit to this attractive craft workshop in the middle of Hoi An. You can see artisans in the workshop making some of the items on display.

Reaching Out provides the opportunity for disabled people to learn skills and produce beautiful functional items. It is a worthy cause, a lovely experience to visit with many attractive and traditional Vietnamese items for sale.

We were originally scheduled to stop at the Reaching Out Tea House but as Covid 19 had just kicked off the tearoom was closed. A little doubtful about a tour of the Arts and Crafts place as I envisaged something a little D.I.Yish.. Not at all. Reaching Out provides opportunities for people with disabilities to learn skills and gain meaningful employment. The arts and crafts showcased were utterly exquisite and we bust the budget buying all sorts of items.

One of the best visits on our holiday to Vietnam and Cambodia, we spent an hour making lanterns and then had a wonderful tea and snack break then looked at the workshop and finally the shop. I would advise anyone to visit here the team are fantastic and incredibly friendly. If we return to Hoi An this is a visit we will make again.

Reaching Out helps the disabled learn skills to become financially independent. We attended a lantern making class that was fun and supported the organization. Their store sells high quality arts and crafts made by the participants in the program. Gray WSU to help support the community that the government doesn’t help

A must go to place to purchase your one of a kind souvenires in Hoi An. When you walk through the market in Hoi An it is same same same, here it is different and you know the source and are purchasing direct from the manufacturer for a good social purpose. Prices are very reasonable for the quality. The hardest is making a decision as you want to purchase everything!

Thank you for your enthusiastic review. We are proud of the quality of our products, many of which are designed by our artisans themselves. We feature unique designs, both traditional and trendy.

Hoi An is a super historic town. Maybe a little touristy and yes, many repetitive souvenir type shops. BUT Reaching Out is something special. Run by disabled artists who do fantastic and very unique and beautiful work. This is social impact stuff at it's best. This is. Must Do when in Hoi An.

Our artisans are very proud of the work that they produce and often of their own design. We appreciate your strong recommendation.

This is the highlight of my trip in Hoi An.

After having coffee Faifo Cafe just for the rooftopexperience, we think this place trumps all cafes. You get coffee served in gold brass cups. The wood furnishings in the cafe transport you back to the 1960s.

I love the ambience, the coffee and the Lime Drink. We ordered a coffee set with a plate of cookies and coconut strips (add USD3)

The lime drink was so good, we ordered twice.

We sat there for a good hour. Just relaxing and enjoyable the peace.

Highly recommended.

This enterprise offers an outlet for arts and crafts made by artisans with disabilities. The quality is great and you can see the items being made in the workshop. For some items, like jewellery you can have it resized the same day if needed. They also offer worldwide shipping at a reasonable cost. I like that my tourist dollar is supporting a social justice initiative and that I am buying authentic, handmade products. Worth a look. The staff are attentive rather than pushy and it was a quiet haven from the busyness of the street outside.
