Every year, Sala Baï Hotel and Restaurant School trains 150 students in hospitality at no charge to them. This program is exclusively devoted to helping underprivileged young Cambodians, with priority given to girls (70%) who are more vulnerable and who have less access to education.
In 16 years, more than 1,500 students have been trained and have found a job in the hospitality industry, one of the most dynamic economic sector of the country, enabling them to achieve economic independence and improve the living conditions of their families.
