Are the programs sustainable?
We strongly believe that we have a responsibility to reduce the impact and increase the benefits that our placements have in all of our destinations. We don’t ship employees over to each of our locations; we employ local people and give them the skills and training they need to improve their opportunities. We source our food and other products from the local areas and make use of public transport as long as it is safe and appropriate to do so. We also like to make donations to individual members of staff and specific wards in the hospitals and clinics we work with, over and above the standard fees we pay them for each student. Local hospital and clinic staff can also benefit from English lessons that we sponsor.
