Why We Do It
THE VITAL ROLE OF TOURISM
The magnificent Kingdom of Cambodia is still recovering from its recent tragic history. Things are progressing here but not as quickly as they might.
Beyond Unique Escapes supports local communities in all destinations and donates learning materials to the schools and projects visited on tours. We are also actively involved in various specific projects: sponsoring young street children through school; training young people in life and work skills and sponsoring our staff on various catering, computer, business and management courses to help further their careers.
Tourism is playing a vital role in helping the country overcome the difficulties of the past and move towards a bright and positive future. In practicing and promoting truly responsible tourism over the past four years, we have seen encouraging results.
Our goals focus around the basics of providing access to safe water, livelihood opportunities, health, education & environment. We work to assist families address some of their most basic needs, giving them the best opportunity to stay together and work for a better future.
Our directors are all unpaid volunteers. Only our directly employed local Khmer staff are paid by HUSK.
