One of Experience Travel’s favourite hotels in Siem Reap, Shinta Mani, is leading a push to complete 1,500 wells for local communities as soon as possible. The Shinta Mani Foundation, a non-profit organisation, seeks to empower people through education, business and health care. With more than 50% of the Cambodian population without access to safe drinking water, this initiative is of great importance to local well-being, particularly of more vulnerable infants and children.
The Shinta Mani Hotel donates a portion of its profits to supporting the Water Well Project and by supporting the hotel, guests are contributing to the future of local communities. It costs $175 to build a well and with the 1136th built, the Shinta Mani Foundation has already achieved so much (although there is still much more to do!)
