How does it help?
Pleasant view is probably one of the most responsible choice you should pick in Ngapali Beach. They employ poor villagers from the surrounding communities to work in all aspects of the Resort as possible. From carpenters and masons to cooks and cleaners villagers have found anew lease of life on their skills, which were left idol due to limited work in the area.For those without a skill, the Resort has trained those to become staff in a variety of jobs throughout the resort. This has meant that local people have been able to secure employment from tourism rather than bringing in outside labour from the larger cities. They now have around 100 people from the neighbouring communities gainfully employed.
In their recycling efforts, the Resort shares the sales of their glass, plastic water bottles etc amongst all the staff providing both an additional income for their staff but also encouraging them to recycle wherever possible.
The Resort believes that their circumstance is a good opportunity to give back to the surrounding communities. They do this by providing funds and other facilities including safe drinking water for the public and medical care and treatment for the poor.
They also provide books for the local school library and support the education of very poor and needy children from the surrounding communities. They also take care of the elderly by contributing to the Home for the Aged in Sandoway Town.
