As one of the most responsible tour operator in Myanmar since the country opens, Myanmar Tours Asia officially boost our campaign to support local community and school in the less-visited areas.
1. How travelers get involve ?
Part of your visit to Burma will be customized to visit local villages or schools. During this time, you will communicate with children and local villages to understand better the local life then donate either stationery or money to the place you visit.We do encourage travelers to teach children games or knowledge that they can use for their life such as filtering the water, organizing the environment, creating better living standard or cultivating skills.Myanmar Tours Asia also promote more tours with home-stay so that you understand better and learn better about local tradition.
If you do not take the trip with us, do not mind, you still can join us by sending us your donation and mentioning the places you want to donate, we will create a trip to that place and take the photos how we support the local. We send the photos to you !
