Royal Mountain Travel is well aware of its social responsibilities
and has sponsored a number of projects to meet this obligation. We have
identified a list of specific and worthwhile community projects for
rural people in the areas of education and community support programs
having both immediate and long term benefits.
Royal Mountain Travel has helped in strengthening sustainable local economic development in Panauti, Bungamati and Lubhu through home stay program for visitors. The project has empowered 20 low-income households of these rural areas by giving them the training and materials they need to start and run their own bed and breakfast businesses. In particular, in Panauti, under the home stay project, local households, after suitable training, have improved the quality standards required to host guests and have been successful in raising revenue to not only support their families but also to run age-old handicraft businesses. There has been a marked decrease in rural unemployment in these areas after the commencement of our programs.
