Tenshin

I am a master of Japanese calligraphy with 45 years of experience. I hold the highest rank of "Shihan" and have taught to foreign visitors for over a decade. I'm also the founder and CEO of the educational organization called NPO-LESA.

About the organization

NPO-LESA

For the past 12 years we have been providing study materials, warm clothes, school scholarships and medical health checking to 500 children in Vietnam who suffer from AIDS or are in very difficult circumstances. Airbnb does not charge any commissions from your attending fee. Your attending fee would be 100% raised up as donations for Vietnamese very poor children. This is a 100% charity workshop.

This is a social impact experience where 100% of what you pay for this experience goes to NPO-LESA.
