We have recognized and realized the importance of the participation of the communities in Khao Lak to be involved in the tourism industry in the area and to promote the local economy as well as the cash flow for the local businesses.
In addition, we would also like to contribute and share an opportunity for social development activities with the communities in Khao Lak and the local people by getting the assistance of the tourists coming for a vacation (often several times). Our local economic stimulus plan creates this contact between the visitors and the local people.
Hence, our Vision & Mission for the Khao Lak Sponsoring Project got the slogan “Go for Locals”.
Khao Lak Sponsoring Project (KLSP) supports the local economy in Khao Lak through our economic stimulus plan.
KLSP has also recognized the importance of social development for the communities in Khao Lak and we would like to ask for the participation and involvement of the visitors for our activities in local projects.
We initiated support for social activities in a local school – Ban Bang Niang School (located in Khao Lak), helping to raise funds to support the school activities (e.g. school supplies for young students, children playground maintenance and to provide scholarships for poor students).
We also raised funds to support the swimming pool maintenance for Wat Khommaneeyakhet School, not only as a swim training center for the children and villagers in the area but also as a place for recreation and relaxation for the residents of Khao Lak to obtain a higher quality of life.
KLSP – Khao Lak Sponsoring Project supports the local economy in Khao Lak through our economic stimulus plan with its so called “GoCards” – these are vouchers which are provided by our main sponsor Mother of Nature (MONA) for this plan. Each participant of a MONA tour gets part of the booking price back in vouchers.
These ‘GoCards’ can be used in many ways: To pay for your restaurant visit and many services (even taxis!) and for shopping. . . just look for the shops with the GoCard Logo and use the GoCards instead of cash!
To date about 200 local businesses participate in the KLSP initiative!
But there is more to it. . . You can use the GoCards for a donation as well to support social projects. See the list of projects and charities you can support!
