Local Youth Tour Guide Program
We provide training for local youths who want to become tour guides and practise their English. They accompany us on trips to gain hands-on experience whilst learning about the importance of preserving their land and culture and how to carry our responsible tourism.
Income Generation for hilltribe families
We have setup homestays in hilltribe villages which acts as a source of supplemental income for families. They not only benefit financially, but learn a lot through cultural exchange with foreigners. We also facilitate silver and cotton workshops held by hilltribe artisans. Along with earning an income through this it also helps to preserve these traditional handicrafts and techniques which are in danger of being lost. We also try to find a market for these handicrafts, promote and sell them.
Recruitment of foreign volunteers
We are always looking for volunteers to come and teach at the hilltribe schools. The children benefit immensely from being able to practise their spoken English with volunteers whilst gaining exposure to new ideas and ways of thinking. If you are interested in volunteering please see our volunteer page
