Shinta Mani’s Support of Gender Equality
Luxury boutique hotel Shinta Mani has made responsible tourism a way of life. This includes upholding their belief in equality for all — the acclaimed resort has recently trained and hired the first female remork (tuk tuk) driver in Siem Reap.
Her motorbike and remork were both paid for by the Shinta Mani Foundation and were part of their small business start-up loans, which are made possible by the assistance of the Lotus Group UK.
Shinta Mani is also well known for its work with less privileged children; the Shinta Mani Hospitality Vocational School educates Siem Reap’s “street children” free of charge, thus enabling them with skills to improve and find employment and support their families. The school facilities were done by famous designer Bill Bensley, and many of their graduates have already found employment within the local hospitality industry.
Congratulations once again to Shinta Mani for their forward thinking outlook and their success in turning words into action!
