David Allardice and Bishnu Neopanae, founders of The Last Resort, started their contribution to the area by building a bridge. This suspension bridge helped develop the area around the resort by giving the villagers easy access to the main road.
We hire most of the resort staff locally and give the necessary training to them. All of our staff members have health and accident insurance, a provident fund savings account, service charge, inflation compensation and share in the profit.
We try to operate with limited impact on the environment and work on raising awareness. We buy, as much as possible, supplies and services locally.
A fixed amount from every bungy, canyon swing and canyoning trip is spent on developing and maintaining the local infrastructure and supporting several projects in health, education, women empowerment and microfinance.
With The Last Resort funds and help of our international sponsors we built and renovated schools in the area, supported the construction of a new sub-health post, conducted vocational and teacher trainings and evening literacy classes for local women.
You touched us all and changed our lives. A friend, an inspiration, a legend. Thanks for the incredible adventure.
