The Lon Ton Social Impact Guesthouse is the cornerstone of Face of Indawgyi. It will provide new career opportunities that exist nowhere else around the lake. Through partnerships with local families and experienced hospitality trainers, the hotel school will draw in additional foreign and local visitors to the region to effectively prepare the local economy for future growth not only in Lon Ton but around the entire lake. Since July 2017, we have been working towards getting the guesthouse built while beginning projects in our four pillars.
