A Mahout is the most important person in the life of an elephant, that is living in any form of captivity in Asia. They are the ones who tend to all the needs of the elephants and are who know them the best. From being able to tell when the elephant is not comfortable, is tired, or hungry; to when they are not feeling well. All of this makes the mahout's job extremely important. Sadly, for a very long time, their hard work has gone unrecognized. The mahouts are made to work long hours with very little pay. They are also forced to leave their homes and families behind. This is why, at Gentle Giants, we are committed to pay the mahouts who work in our program(S) fair wages. We want them to be able to, not only support their families, but not have to leave them and their village homes behind.
By sponsoring a mahout you will help to ensure they get to stay with their elephants in the village & forest
