The Le Tonle Project
From October 1st 2012 CRDT will take over running of the Le Tonle Tourism Training Centre in Stung Treng. Partnered with the Swiss association Tourism for Help who set up the guesthouse and training centre in 2007, we will offer local youths the professional training they need to enable them to increase their chances of finding work. As well as providing training in the areas of hospitality and reception, catering, maintenance and tourist guidance, students take courses in English, computer science, accounting, geography and history. They are also trained in promoting ecological protection through careful management of water and energy consumption.
Also a guesthouse (see here for current prices and booking), students can put theoretical learning into practice by ensuring the smooth operation of the guesthouse and that patron’s needs are cared for. After finishing their studies, we support students to find work by contacting schools or institutions to continue their studies, guiding them in the creation of their business, and by contacting potential employers and trainers.
