We are committed to supporting sustainable livelihoods in rural communities and maintaining their cultural, social and natural environment.


We are using resources as if we had two planets, not one.

There can be no 'plan B' because there is no 'planet B.'

What's New?

October 28, 2020

The COVID pandemic has brought many sectors to the brink of collapse.  None more so than travel on which many low-income and developing regions worldwide depend.


But, we believe that travel will return - but will change.  Our BSST Program will use the winter to re-charge and connect with travelers and communities.


In the meantime, we all need some short breaks, and the BSST team, with contributions from talented photographers and film-makers, is creating a short series of "BSST Travel Moments".  You can find them on our blog, here.

Also, our rural partners need help and we cannot do it without you.  Please consider making a small donation, here, and on behalf of our communities and us, thank you!

Contact us with your questions and needs.  Let's work together.
