With partnerships with both local and international training organisations, universities, businesses and tourist operators we are helping train local people in skills that can be utilised in a range of jobs. From business skills, sheet metal work, welding through to IT skills are available to members of the communities we work in. Provided by trained local teachers as well as staff from international universities and colleges.
The social enterprise, My Adventure Tours (MAT), employ local people trained by Saffron Aid in a range of positions such as Guides, Boat Driver and Camp Cooks as well as helping local tea houses to cater for international tourists. MAT also use local suppliers wherever possible to ensure money is retained in the local economy which benefits the local community.
The Indo-Pacific Plastic Recycling social enterprise run by Saffron Aid employs local members of low socio-economic communities in a wide range of jobs. Employees are trained in Occupational Health and Safety, skills to perform their roles as well as basic First Aid to benefit their family and local community.
Future projects will include the training of Scientific Field Assistants and Park Rangers to help gather information and manage the unique local environment projects to be implemented by Saffron Aid’s environmental team.
