Why a social business in Burma?

Tobias Geimer from Germany and Hans Hassle from Sweden set this business up - together they run HassleGeimer Travels Ltd. In cooperation with U Kyaw Tun from Taungbi Village in Bagan we have the ambition to contribute to a reponsible and sustainable development of all business in Burma, working both small scale and big scale. By donating 10 percent of all income from Bagan Hose Cart 144 to the local school in Taungbi Village and by reinvesting all profit back to the community we show that everyone can do something, even if no one can do everything. Still, our payback time on investement is 5-6 years. Quite good!

U Kyaw Tun on the job - A local Hero

U Kyaw Tun was born August 12, 1986 in Taungbi Village. He grew up with the dream of becoming an engineer. Things happened in is family that made this dream not come true. Today he is a true Buddhist and horse cart driver that has a new dream - to help others achieve was he was not given the chance to do. To most of the young students this is a matter of money. Kyaw and the owners of horse cart 144 therefore donate 1/10 of all income from the income. This finances the education of three students in grade 5 to 7 in Taungbi Village, every year. Ride with 144 and help local students!
