With partnerships with both local and international businesses and tourist operators we are helping train local people in skills that can be utilised in a range of jobs.

Tourist Operators such as Myanmar Adventure Tours are employing local people trained by Saffron Aid in a range of positions such as Guides, Boat Driver and Camp Cooks as well as Waiters. Operators such as MAT also use local suppliers wherever possible to ensure money is retained in the local economy.

Future projects will include the training of Scientific Field Assistants and Park Rangers to help gather information and manage the unique local environment.
