Nepal: Eco-sensitive resort, Pavilions Himalayas The Farm, has offered life-changing opportunities for people in its local communities.

According to the latest report from its NGO partner, Right4Children, Pavilions Himalayas The Farm has this year sponsored eight students to attend the FAB Hospitality School; provided 10 paid internships for FAB Hospitality School graduates; funded a free primary healthcare clinic for nearly 600 villagers of Pumdi Bhumdi; and contributed over US$1800 for the construction of a road from the village to Pokhara.

Since its establishment in 2017, 81 per cent of FAB Hospitality School graduates have been placed in jobs locally and abroad.

Douglas Maclagan, founder of Pavilions Himalayas The Farm, said: "Our philosophy is all about giving back. We do this via our three W's: providing local, sustainable work to the village community; wealth, as we reinvest around 50 per cent of all net profits into life-saving, life-changing opportunities for the most disadvantaged children and young people in and around Pokhara; and wisdom, reflecting our belief that we must protect our environment by operating an ecologically sustainable business model."

In order to help guests tap into this philosophy, Pavilions Himalayas The Farm has launched a new three-night Lifetime Experience package, which includes joining students of the FAB Hospitality School for a cooking class and Nepali lunch, visits to local villages, and a tour of the hotel's organic eco farm.
