Text:  Returning from Ireland after a 5 year break, (well deserved after 25 years) we have been working hard at upgrading what was our Sanpatong Farm Stay just outside in Chiang Mai, to a full facility experiential education centre.

We are open for business, and have been accepting international school, corporate team building and special interest travel groups since late last year, and are on schedule have everything in place by mid-2018.

Highlights:

  • The 14m custom designed advanced climbing and abseil wall is up, and ready for use. The high ropes and zip wire features will link to the second tower 30m away.
  • Design work on the Bamboo Man Challenge (our Adventure Racing Circuit) is underway.
    It combines ninja style challenges, a confidence course, mountain bike and assault course, together with a set of critical thinking challenges. To complete it you will need to be strong, fit, agile and smart.
  • Developments are well underway on our Industrial Training Programmes at the Sanpatong Experiential Education Centre in collaboration with recognised world-class experts in the field of (a) RAW - Rope Access Work (IRATA and other qualifications. (b) GWO - Global Wind Organisation Training - to meet this industry's rapidly growing demand. (c)  International Standard Emergency Rescue Training.

Text:  Within the last two months we have received groups from both R.P Lawyers, HK, and Mölnlycke Health Care, Singapore for our Chiang Mai City Challenge.

  • The recent upgrades to challenge quality provides more hands-on cultural/arts/crafts activities that afford greater interaction with the locals, and ensure good facilitators are with the group to maximise the benefit of the experience, whilst minimising the chance of cultural faux pas.
  • Optional 'assessment tools' have been added, to allow those who want them to find out (confidentially) where their strengths and weakness lie as a team member.
  • Our combined farm skills challenge (rice planting, harvesting, buffalo ploughing, cooking and more), with CSR projects (small 2-4hr projects in local schools), with our non-profit partner Volunteers Without Borders that provide a great platform for team building, and leave a long lasting impact.

Text:  Since selling our Pang Soong Lodge property (now a private company retreat) a few years back, where we used to host IB ESS/Biology teachers workshops, we have been looking for a replacement venue for environmental studies. We have now identified 14 investigation sites within 45 minutes of our new SEEC (Sanpatong Experiential Education Centre) that combined with our on-site laboratory and equipment, allow us to meet the environmental education requirements of the IB and other systems.

Text:  Our Saturday School English project is doing well and is in its 3rd month. We look forward to expanding it to cover more school years groups, as well as introducing tourism based English for adult groups from the arts, crafts and tourism sector. Our new range of cured bamboo, knock down mushroom houses, greenhouses, intelligent playgrounds and more are attracting attention. They allow Track of the Tiger's corporate team building,  visiting schools and volunteer groups the opportunity to undertake small CS and CSR projects, that can be completed in less than 4hrs., do not require construction skills, and have a lasting impact that far exceeds their cost.

We are now in a position to offer modest subsidies (accommodation, meals, incidental expenses, work permit) to medium term (6-12 month) volunteers with the skill sets we need to move forward. (Enquiries welcome.)

The Volunteers Without Borders Foundation was pleased to receive 18 students and teachers from the J.A. Williams School Alberta, Canada, who came to us via Exo Travel.

The selected project was a mushroom house established at the KRP Klang Uppatum School, in Doi Lor. (150-170 students, 19 teachers, est. 1979.
The project will generate 2-3 times it cost in mushroom value - to add to school meals or sold locally to fund books and/or  part time English teachers.
After 5 months, the structure remains and the school (or donors) fund new mushroom substrate to repeat the process. The bamboo built mushroom house is good for 2-3 years, longer if cured bamboo is used.

Day 1. The group, assisted by local school children, prepared and filled 1000 bags with substrate which would be steamed to remove impurities, and then inoculated with mycelium. Lunch was cooked on site, and the group were accommodated at Sanpatong Experiential  Education Centre.

Day 2. The bag filling was completed, and the bamboo mushroom house erected, leaving only the steaming, inoculation and loading of the mushroom bags onto the racks prepared for them, by the local students and teachers. After lunch there was an award ceremony with thanks expressed by the school headmaster, and certificates were given to each individual in the group.

Prior to leaving, the group left a further donation which will be used to establish a greenhouse near the school kitchen, and will further help to assist in cost savings/increased nutrition.
As is the policy of all involved, the full amount raised for the project was spent on the project, and logistics (accommodation, meals, transport, supervision) were charged separately, ensuring complete transparency.

Text: An article on our Travel4Good project - which aims to level the playing field for small tourism businesses, by providing an alternative to the traditional commission based booking system favoured by mainstream or mass tourism - was published across some 70 website recently. See: https://travelcommunication.net/travel-4-good-problems-solutions/

We are actively seeking development assistance from universities to develop this groundbreaking project and the tasks involved will suit students studying in a wide range of fields from IT to business management and beyond. Recent funding support from a generous donor allows us to offer modest subsidies (accommodation, meals, incidental expenses, work permit) to medium term (6-12 month) volunteers with the skills we need to move forward. (Enquiries welcome.)
