An Ethical Framework

Our Social Responsibility

At Campfire Trails, we believe in Fair Trade. This is a practice that has been very important to us because we believe that we must contribute to society at large. Our business practices are designed in a manner where we ensure fair remuneration to our partners especially in the rural areas. As much as possible, we also ensure that due attention is also paid to employment of local people for any services that we require. This has so far ensured that a number of rural, unemployed youth are now being gainfully employed as guides, cooks, drivers, cleaners, managers, etc. after receiving due training. We believe strongly in contributing to the change that we wish to see and therefore conduct our business in a manner that is fair for all.

Activities with a mind on Sustainability

Our Environmental Responsibility

We have always endeavoured to practice the “Leave no Trace” policy whenever and wherever we conduct our operations. Campfire Trails has always tried to ensure that the environment where we operate has minimal impacts due to our activities and it is also common practice for us to ensure that every guest of ours, shares this attitude. Environmental conservation is an important aspect of our outlook and we have been part of many, very tangible projects, where we have contributed a great deal of our efforts. An example that we must mention, with great pride, is that we have managed to stop the practice the hunting for birds, at the community forest of a partner village, by working together with the local community and raising awareness about the need to protect all avian species in this forest.

OVERNIGHT CAMPING-LADY KEANE COLLEGE @ MAWLONGBNA TRAVELLER’S NEST

CFT’s first camping trip to Mawlongbna with the ladies from Lady Keane College. These magical ladies drove the rains away and played all day. Full of energy, the trip was super fun. The teachers that accompanied the kids were also loads of fun(one in particular thoroughly enjoyed the Jadoh at the night market). The CFT Crew too had great fun taking them out and hope that there are many more fun filled trips with the students of Lady Keane College.
