Sustainable, Ethical, Local
During times of political strife, many visitors are concerned about where their tourism spend will go. We understand that.
Our mission is to foster responsible and sustainable livelihoods through community-based tourism activities. We are the first social enterprise launched by the Swiss-registered nonprofit association Myanmar SEEDS (Sustainable Economic & Environmental Development Society). As such, we have no political interests in Myanmar and seek to support the most vulnerable members of the community through our work and business practices.
Fair-Trade, Living Wages
Your tour fees support living-wage salaries for our staff, including medical care, paid holidays, and year-round compensation. All community participants are compensated for their time and effort when participating in our activities. Additionally, as a local social enterprise, we conduct our own training programs and community-development projects in the areas around Bagan. These include organic gardens, English training, photography courses, women’s programs, and childhood education.
Three Treasures does not discriminate based on national origin, gender, religious affiliation, age, mobility, nor sexual/gender preference. We serve and hire all, fairly and equally. Whenever possible, we seek to source our staff, services, and materials from small, ethical, local suppliers.
