What we do
Our goal is to provide a sustainable income stream for our Ba Hom homestay villages without sacrificing their traditional beliefs and customs while at the same time giving visitors a unique chance for cultural interaction and exchange.
In order to achieve this goal, Ba Hom Homestay has worked with the villagers and their leaders to insure that they believe in, understand and value the projects we set up. The key to any project such is this is creating a sense of ownership among the participants, involving them in a project that they believe in. Without ownership a community-based project such as ours will not last. The more aware the locals are of the value of their unique cultures the more enthusiastic they are about preserving it and sharing it with others.
During our Ba Hom homestays we source all of our supplies, food and materials from the local communities as well as employing villagers to help throughout the duration of stay. A key part of our Ba Hom homestays initiative, and one that we are very proud of, is guide training. We fully train enthusiastic locals to be our guides which provides an additional income stream for the village and job training for future pursuits. Finally, the revenue generated from our Ba Hom homestays is put back into the community through educational, health and environmental initiatives.
Through these actions we hope to enhance the environment and lifestyles of the community while adding value to both the travelers experience and that of the locals.
