Pimali Hospitality Training Centre Opens

“An investment in knowledge pays the best interest” – Benjamin Franklin

Perfectly summing up ONYX Hospitality Group’s belief and dedication to supporting education of the underprivileged, the quote above highlights the foundation on which the social initiative Baht for a Better Life (BBL) is founded. Since its inception in 1995, Amari has been an active and proud supporter of this programme that serves to raise funds towards education-related causes such as building schools and offering scholarships.

The ONYX Hospitality Group Foundation, through the BBL programme, aided in contributing significant funds to support the construction of the Pimali Hospitality Training Centre in the Nong Khai province in northern Thailand.

Aimed at providing young Thais with the professional and practical hospitality training to become financially independent and gain better employment opportunities, the Pimali Hospitality Training Centre will cover three main areas in the hospitality industry, including kitchen and service, housekeeping, and general knowledge, such as English and information technology with a nine-month theoretical and practical training followed by a three-month internship. Currently the centre has 6 students enrolled and expects new students in May.
