community commitment

Engage, contribute, educate.
The management and staff at Golden Banana’s Boutique Hotel and Resort are not only part of the community they live and work in but strive to be positive, supportive members of their community, dedicated to contributing to the sustainable development of Cambodia and its people.

We actively encourage our staff to better themselves, their families and engage in humanitarian projects in our community.

Scholarship programs for staff and families
Education is the key to breaking the poverty cycle and improving lives but for many of the GB staff and families, higher education was previously out of reach. We are proud to say that through our scholarship program many of our staff and their children have now been enrolled or reintegrated into school. From kindergarten to University, they are studying subjects such as; Law, Tourism, Business, Finance, Accounting, IT and English. One of our team members is even studying for his Masters.

We are very proud of them and their continued efforts to grow.

Emergency Relief Programs
In 2011 we supported an enormous flood relief campaign to help more than 1500 families around Siem Reap to survive the devastating effects of the worst flooding in living memories. In total we raised – together with 4 other travel businesses/organizations – more than 25.000 USD which went to emergency relief of rice, canned fish and clean water. GB management and staff were proud to join the collaboration in delivering these packs to the communities. Click here to read about our journey.

Community partnerships

The local and international community, especially businesses, families and key community leaders, as well as travelers – are involved. ChildSafe trains key people to keep their eyes wide open, recognize situations where children might be at risk and to know how to respond.
