At New World Hotels & Resorts, we believe in building and nurturing strong relationships with those around us, wherever we may be. The way we do business, support others and respect the environment are some ways we give back to local and global communities, and the people we work with.
Our corporate social responsibility values are demonstrated in philanthropy, safety and quality, environmental concerns and workplace culture. Activities conducted by individual New World Hotels properties range from financial support to victims of natural disasters and educational opportunities for children, to committing to recycling and conservation efforts and providing career-enhancing training for all associates.
In particular, we firmly believe that learning is the foundation of all growth and possibility in life. In that spirit, New World Hotels & Resorts has partnered with Room to Read, a global organisation transforming the lives of millions of children in low-income countries by focusing on literacy and gender equality in education. In the belief that one of the best ways to alleviate poverty lies in the schooling of young women, New World Hotels & Resorts provides special support to Room to Read’s Girls’ Education Programme by contributing funds which enable 100 young women to continue their secondary school education in Siem Reap, Cambodia. The Girls’ Education Programme reinforces girls’ commitment to their own education, works with them to develop essential life skills and increases support for girls’ education among their parents, school staff and communities. To learn more about Room to Read’s inspiring outreach in the Kingdom of Cambodia, please watch this video.
We believe people are the heart of hospitality -- from hotel guests and associates to business partners and neighbourhoods -- and together we can nurture members of the next generation so they can realise their full potential and become a positive force in their communities and the world.
