As a locally based company, we are tuned in to the benefits that tourism can bring to Myanmar and its people. We are also aware of the damages it can cause environmentally, culturally and spiritually. This is not only our place of business, but also our home and we are 100% committed to preserving the authenticity of the country. READ MORE
We are currently engaged in the construction of a small library in Taungbi, a farming village in Bagan. The library will play a key role in increasing the general knowledge of villagers and in inspiring children to follow higher educational levels. In the past, the villagers were content to work as farmers, which required little or no education; yet these activities did not yield a sustainable income as it was only seasonal. With the increase of tourism in Bagan, residents of Taungbi now work as horse-cart drivers during the dry months, escorting tourists from site to site. Through this interaction with foreigners and involvement in the tourism industry, the villagers have realized that education is important to achieve a better livelihood. However access to reading materials is limited in Bagan and, despite the desire to learn more, the residents of Taungbi have little opportunity to increase their level of English and their general knowledge. They have tried, over recent years, to obtain the funds necessary to build and run a library but have been unsuccessful in this mission. They are excited about the possibility of receiving funding to complete this project as well as the guidance to ensure its ongoing success.
