Justin is responsible for building the Vayando platform, which enables travelers and entrepreneurs to connect and learn about each other's livelihoods. Similarly, the booking system is built on top some nifty technology that allows us to connect with entrepreneurs way off the beaten path and usually off grid. Our platform also embraces various NGO networks, giving partner organizations to showcase their work in partnership with Vayando, as well as give their employees the chance to do the same.p
