Travel Experience

The standards at this hotel easily met those of all our other accommodation, with the added bonus of supporting young Cambodians in their training. They provided an excellent service, were only too happy to help with all requests, and we felt that we had been able to contribute a small amount to help these young people reach their goals.

Responsibility

The goal of the program is to train each year, free of charge, 150 young underprivileged Cambodians to the main professions of the hospitality industry. Priority is given to girls (70%) who are more vulnerable and have less access to education and stable employment. After 18 years in operation, more than 1600 students have been trained and found a job in the fastest growing economic sector of the country, enabling them to achieve economic independence and improving the living conditions of their families.

Business Case

After eighteen years of operation, more than 1600 Sala Baï students have been trained for careers in the growing hospitality industry, enabling them to achieve economic independence and improve the living conditions of their families. The training program 1 year and offers 5 different disciplines: Restaurant, Cooking, Front Office, Housekeeping and Beauty Therapy since 2015. The diploma awarded at the end of the training is recognized and co-signed by two Cambodian Ministries: Ministry of Labor and Vocational Training and Ministry of Tourism. The training program is also recognized as being efficient by the main local actors of the hospitality industry. The training and the diploma are real assets to finding a job. Today, 100% of the students find a job within 1 month after their graduation and have an entry level salary that equals 3 times more than the family average income. Consequently, the students can support their families and enable their brothers and sisters to continue their education.
