What is Khiri Reach ?

Khiri Reach is a non-profit organisation that operates as a social platform where people and organisations can collaborate and create positive change across Asia. 
Khiri Reach was founded with the objective of helping to solve some of the pressing issues in the region by using sustainable tourism as a tool to enhance cultural understanding, circular industry, respect of nature, protecting the environment, and to bring about sustainable development in local communities.

OUR FOCUS

Life

Khiri Reach’s LIFE projects focus on the natural environment encompassing all flora and fauna. We wish to engage and encourage local schools, clubs, governments and others businesses to actively promote and support wildlife and habitat conservation.

Wildlife has a fundamental value and contributes to the ecological, genetic, social, economic, scientific, educational, cultural, recreational and aesthetic aspects of sustainable development and human well-being. Together through education and responsible interaction we hope to show locals and foreigners alike how they can help preserve and protect each country’s beautiful wildlife before it is too late.

Empower

Khiri Reach sees empowerment as a multi-dimensional social process that helps people gain control in their own lives.

Helping and guiding people to improve their skills and develop their knowledge in the hope that it will motivate them to take steps to progress independently and lead self-sufficient lives - to be empowered.

This process fosters power in individuals for use in their own lives, their communities, and in their society by acting on issues and finding solutions to problems that they define as important. 

Water

Khiri Reach stands behind the statement that ‘Water is a precondition for human existence and for the sustainability of the planet’. 

Clean water and Sanitation for all is #6 of the UN’s 17 Sustainability Goals and they also point out that “Tourism can play a critical role in achieving water access and security, as well as hygiene and sanitation for all. The efficient use of water in the tourism sector, coupled with appropriate safety measures, wastewater management, pollution control and technology efficiency can be key to safeguarding our most precious resource” 

Plastic

Pollution and environmental damage caused by Plastic production, usage and incorrect disposal are a worldwide problem, especially in Asia.

The amassing of plastic based products in the environment has adversely affected wildlife, wildlife habitat, and humans.

The contamination critically affects land areas, fresh waterways and the oceans. Plastic that has been disposed of and not recycled is often buried in landfills which then leaches and spreads harmful chemicals into groundwater. Plastic acts as a pollutant and can be categorized into micro-, meso-, or macro debris, based on its dimension. 

Carbon

The carbon cycle is the transformation of carbon back and forth between all living beings and the environment. Carbon is often referred to as the "building block of life" because living things are based on carbon and carbon compounds. Carbon is an element that cannot be broken down into a simpler substance.

Carbon compounds are present in living things like plants and animals and in non-living things like rocks and soil. Carbon compounds can exist as solids (such as diamonds or coal), liquids (such as crude oil), or gases (such as carbon dioxide). 

PROJECT

Planet Projects deal with all issues that affect Mother Nature’s non-human creations. The numerous threats destroying natural resources and wildlife across the region are of real concern, therefore conservation, education and an environmentally friendly approach are key features of the Planet Projects we develop and support.

From efforts to offset carbon emissions through afforestation and mangrove restoration through to programs that aim to deal with plastic pollution and the rehabilitation of animals, we are constantly looking at ways to implement real solutions to preserve our planet.

.....

People Projects focus on working with and assisting underprivileged members or groups of society in a sustainable way across the countries we operate in covering issues such as health, education, pollution and water.

Together with these communities, based upon their needs and abilities, we identify, support and create specific People Projects that improve their living conditions, help them find alternative livelihoods, encourage them to develop and learn different ways to reach self-sufficiency and provide the funds needed to build new opportunities in a responsible manner.
