Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Teach English to monks in Sri Lanka

Environment

We are addressing our local environment by working with local communities, local charities, local government bodies, local schools, or indigenous tribes. Our tours are carefully selected – we only partner with local tour operators that are either committed to responsible tourism themselves, are eco-friendly, or have ethical policies. Of course we have to use transport and where possible our local guides encourage walking or biking and travelling on public transport- buses, railways or tuk tuks. This can minimize our demand for special tourist vehicles and fuel whilst giving you plenty of opportunity to meet and interact with local people/communities.

Our operations are also eco- friendly as we introduce policies of minimising and properly disposing of waste created, conserving energy and water, and by ensuring that endangered wildlife and environmentally compromised areas are treated with respect.

Our independent travel options and small group sizes help us to tread lightly and to use more environmentally sound forms of transport, minimizing impact, and ideally enriching the environment.

We will offer traveller’s tips on how to conserve water, reduce waste, and otherwise minimize the environmental impact of their trip. We hope that our travellers will be able to take some of the conservation tips they learn home with them.

Community

Through this program we are supporting the local monks in Southern Sri Lanka that do not get opportunities that regular children get. It will help them to support the community and connect with many who visit Sri Lanka. The monks who learn English can communicate with the tourists who travel to Sri Lanka and they can help to teach Buddhism to those who visit the temples.

In addition to this we are also helping the community by arranging our accommodation in a local area. Income is generated in this way for the locals and you can get a 'real' experience. When you go on any program we use local small businesses. Wherever you stay you will be eating locally grown food and delicious local delicacies!

A further way we support our community is by employing local staff - they are the cultural ambassadors, know multiple dialects of the sub-continent and can easily facilitate local interaction and thus guide our travellers in general best practice.
