Support Community

Native Mon Cultural Dance is the live orchestra of authentic Mon People, a very rare performance that hardly find elsewhere today. The dance is truly legacy from generation to generation. The fees you contribute are given back to the village. The fund will be used to employ Mon dance performers and attract younger Mons to engage in this valuable culture. All over the world, many interesting cultures have been lost mainly because the younger generations do not want to learn. It is pity if we lost this traditional dance too. Therefore River Kwai Jungle Rafts takes step to ensure that the culture is preserved.

Moreover, to ensure that Mon villagers live in decent conditions, Mon village needs regular maintenance. Natural materials such as bamboo and vetiver grass roof need to be changed every year or two. Additionally, River Kwai Jungle Rafts resort helps the Mon community to prevent Malaria by using Australian-made eco friendly insect spray to fog the area regularly. The others are waste management, preserving local plants, reducing the use of plastic containers and recycling it, annually health check up and so on.
