Vayando is a tool for curious travelers and a marketplace for entrepreneurs.

Vayando puts local entrepreneurs on the travel map. We are a platform for travelers from around the world to book directly with skilled entrepreneurs to learn about their livelihoods. Travelers get to connect locally learning about entrepreneurs in the country they are visiting and entrepreneurs get the opportunity to meet new people, diversify their income, and build their business. How it works
It’s an honor that people travel from so far away to come learn about Rwanda, and are interested to spend time with me and my family learning about my trade.
