How does it help?
SST Tourism is one of, if not THE pioneer of responsible tourism in Myanmar. They commit to maximise the benefits for the local people at destination level, by hiring local guides and porters, using local means of transportation such as horse-cart, local boat, wherever possible, as well as encouraging their guests to buy locally-made handicrafts as just another way to support the generation of supplementary income for local people.
They enhance the well-being of the host communities they work in by providing on-job training, language, IT knowledge and entrepreneurship trainings. Staff and team members receive education on the natural environment and how to best protect it, they are involved in the management of the company and are shareholders. They advise tourists who wish to make donations for infrastructures improvement or social projects in villages.
They co-founded the Myanmar Bird & Nature Society, a non-profit conservation body, conducting environmental awareness and education programmes at local schools. They train guides to become specialised bird watching tour guides. They have been involved in many charity works including taking part in the foundation of the Minn Volunteer School and participating in the progress of Thanlyin Sutaung Pyi Parahita (Orphanage) Monastery.
