How does it help?
One of the key concerns of Rosy Guest-house is to reduce their impact on the local environment and help the local community around them, introducing energy and water saving initiatives and working with several local charities.
To ensure their guests have the chance to see the real Siem Reap and experience those things aside the typical tourist trails, they work with responsible local tour operators to offer a more in depth tour to countryside villages.
Most importantly, they discourage tourists from visiting orphanages due to the negative impact this can have on the children.
Their 15 local staff enjoy excellent working conditions; fair wages, paid maternity and paternity leave, paid holidays and sick leave, and they are one of the first businesses to join the government run Social Security system to receive free medical treatment for accidents at work.
Rosy Guesthouse actively supports The Trailblazer Foundation who work with local communities to provide them with water purification filters, wells, micro-loans and agricultural initiatives. They donate a proportion of their profits from the sale of bottled water to The Trailblazer Foundation and support them through their monthly charity pub quizzes and raffles.
Being true to reducing their environmental impact, they established a recycling policy, the proceeds of which are added to staff tips. They refuse plastic bags wherever possible. They installed water and energy saving devices in the rooms and bathrooms to reduce water and energy consumption. They donate waste kitchen scraps to pig farmers and try to source products from local producers.
