EXO Cambodia’s team has been very involved on this topic over the past months, with two major initiatives.
Partnership with Phnom Penh Royal University
Leading travels in Cambodia won’t be possible without motivated and qualified team. For many years, EXO Travel has been involved in the tourism program at the Royal University of Phnom Penh. Due to lower number of registration, the department of tourism was facing some difficulties and rang the bell.
EXO Travel decided to launch a fundraising campaign with the strong support of other local DMC to contribute this fruitful program.
Spreading the word on plastic waste at Sala Bai School
Cambodia’s team was on board at Sala Bai School to discuss about waste and plastic pollution. Since 2002, Sala Bai School is training youth underprivileged Cambodian in different valuable jobs in the hospitality industry.
At different level, the tourism sector could have an impact on the environment and its life surrounding. Knowing that every day, 1 visitor is using 3 to 4 plastic bottles of water, without having a proper solution to recycle them, waste and plastic pollution are a problem that everyone should tackle seriously.
At EXO Travel, a team of volunteer decided to spread the word about this issue and have conducted 2 series of training on waste and plastic pollution to the whole 2018 promotion.
