Explain your project in details:

Hara House operates as a zero waste tourism organization offering accommodation, food and beverage, and tours across India. We are a youth run project that empowers youth to become leaders for environmental justice through economic, social and environmental development opportunities. We are the first zero waste property and tourism organization in India. We believe our approach will revolutionize the tourism industry in India and bring awareness and solutions to waste management and overconsumption across the county by using the tourism sector as a catalyst for social good.

Impact of your enterprise on sustainable development

In our first 6 months of business, we hosted over 150 travellers from 11 countries that observed our zero waste model, learned to implement more sustainable practices in their travels, and obtained resources and tools to help them become sustainable travellers. We also hired 2 local female students to run our tours, and obtained over $8,000 in grants and donations to launch the project and our community hub, which includes resources such as laptops and English literature books that youth can access. As we move into our second tourism season, we will be launching our strategic youth engagement plan including workshops and events focused on sustainability, environmental justice, and arts and culture. As we scale, we are planning to implement measurement tools to understand how much waste we have diverted from landfills, and to collect the stories of youth who engage with our organization and how it influences them to become leaders for sustainable development. I was chosen as 1 of 35 social entrepreneurs to watch for in 2019 by Causeartist, and our project was nominated for the Social Impact Award at the Bessie Awards, part of the Women in Travel Summit.

Sustainability and future plans

Our business model is that our guesthouse and tour sales fund our community hub and provides economic opportunity to youth. We are financial supported through sales, grants and donations. Our plans for growth include launching our sustainability consulting for hospitality and tourism organizations, which will include collaboration with organizations across India to increase economic, social and environmental sustainability within the tourism sector, and to scale our model by opening zero waste guesthouses and hotels across India (and eventually across the globe!). This year, we will provide approximately 10 more economic opportunities for youth to become part of our leadership team and run our day tours, this includes working in marketing, community engagement, and event management. We are currently looking at Mumbai, South Goa and Vrindavan to expand our project. We aim to launch our zero waste desert camp in January 2020 in Chandasar, a village located 30 kilometres away from our current property in Bikaner.

Hello friend

I am intrigued by your idea. I have left a vote for you too.

With more than one billion international tourists now travelling the world each year, tourism has become a powerful and trans-formative force that is making a genuine difference in the lives of millions of people. The potential tourism for sustainable development is considerable and as one of the world's leading employment sectors, your idea will go a long way to provide livelihood opportunities and help alleviate poverty and drive inclusive development.
