Mettaphor

This is a company that mixes the best of both worlds in what people now call "voluntourism", where travel packages are sold to people who want to also do volunteer work among the local people of the places they visit.

Founders Ms Ailin Mao and Ms Elizabeth Tan were secondary school friends who travelled to Ladakh, India in 2009 and discovered their common love for travel and doing good.
