“lift a hand, light a heart, help a life”

ETN’s bigger purpose is to act in ways to reflect the behaviors of a good corporate citizen. Through this, EXPLORER CARE is its social community arm with the mission: “lift a hand, light a heart, help a life”. It undertakes specific outreach initiatives aimed to uplift the values and needs of society and the tourism community.


Driven by our staffs, partners, friends and family members, we initiate charity efforts such as visits, cash donations, school shoes and food provisions for underprivileged such as finally poor, mentally and physically handicapped, orphans, old folks and those neglected by society. Our charity efforts go beyond the bounds of Malaysia to Thailand, Indonesia, Myanmar, Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos, Sri Lanka and other countries.


ETN’s extended corporate responsibility role is aimed at building and strengthening the leadership in the tourism industry as part of its contribution to build professionalism here. Held once or twice a year, tourism industry players are invited to participate in programs that are designed to equip them with right mindset and professional competencies that will help them contribute to the betterment of their organizations, and well as to tourism customers in terms of greater customer satisfaction and fulfillment. Members of the tourism industry are advised to look out for these programs that will certainly benefit them tremendously.
