With the core value of being responsible in mind, we founded Odynovo Cares, a non-profit project, dedicated to making a contribution to destinations that our customers travel to.
Odynovo Cares makes sustained efforts to give back to the local community, such as supporting a skill training program in India, giving moral lessons to homeless children in Nepal, etc.
If you travel with us, you are welcome to do your part to make the destination a better place for the locals to live in and travelers to visit without compromising your travel experience. Programs that you may participate in include education program, community development, animal welfare, disaster relief, etc.
Moral Lessons for Homeless Children in NepalOdynovo cares about our destination communities in favor of sustainable tourism. In November 2017, we sponsored a moral education program for homeless children in Katmandu's Navakiran Children Home, which aims to help kids develop compassion, understanding, and respect. This program was conducted on weekly basis and lasted for a month. Moral lessons, with interactive activities involved, were delivered by two experienced teachers, and two Odynovo staff members were also there to offer assistance.
Benefit Local Community with Vocational Training in IndiaWhat better way to help people in poverty than providing them with resources and opportunities. In September 2017, we partnered with the Hope Project in Delhi and supported a skill training program that enables local youths to realize their hidden potential and determine their own future. After one-month training, a total of 7 community boys graduated from the program, Two of them have already worked as tour guides while the others are pursuing continuing education.
Myanmar School Visit: Book Donation to Support Students' DreamsSupporting schools in need is an important part of our project "Odynovo Cares". We visited Sandar Yama Monastic Education School during our inspection trip to Myanmar in June, 2016. Over 2,000 exercise books and 100 English storybooks were brought as a donation to the school to improve the availability of supplies. Besides, students there got actively engaged in interaction and happily shared their dreams for the future with us. It is hoped that education and their effort can help them achieve their dreams.
A School Visit with Happiness Created in BhutanChildren are always our highest priority. In Bhutan, more than 4,000 children from poor families live and study in monasteries. In September 2016, we visited a monastic school called Mani Dhoendrup Lobdra with some supplies, and had a football match with the students. Most of the time, they are all very quiet owing to their embrace of Buddhism, while playing football enabled them to release their vitality. More happiness was created in the world's happiest country.
Malaysia School Visit: Learn and Play with Refugee ChildrenWe believe that it is important to give something back to the destinations we operate. Refugee children in Malaysia often do not have access to formal education. United Learning Centre (ULC) in Bukit Bintang is a volunteered school providing children of Burmese refugees with education to avoid children begging on the streets. In July 2016, we made a school visit there with some books and sports goods after learning of the shortage of supplies. We organized guessing games for students to practice oral English, and played ball games with them to have fun.
Sri Lanka School Visit: Building a Friendship BridgeWe believe that school visits open up opportunities for cultural exchange. In July 2016, a school visit was made to Angunukolwawewa School near Sri Lanka's well-known Uda Walawe. There were fun, interactive classroom activities organized for students to participate in and finally we came to a mutual understanding "Despite our differences and the distance between us, we could be friends."
