The Petite Anse Hotel has always strived to make a positive difference in the community. Our efforts started on day one when we hired local consultants and then local builders to construct the resort. We have continued to hire local people, source local produce, and promote local artists as much as possible.
Our support of the community manifests itself in many different ways, which you can read more about on our blog. We also feel that the hotel has made an overall positive impact in this part of the island in terms of economics and education.
Here’s how else Petite Anse is involved in the community:
To run the hotel, we hire local people who go through a training and personal development program. We want our staff to be self-sufficient and resourceful long after their time at the hotel. We also support the services of other local people, such as taxi drivers, boat owners, tourist guides, and a blind massage therapist.
Almost all of our fresh produce is either grown by ourselves or purchased from local trusted growers.
Local Wildlife and Nature
We actively support the protection of leatherback turtles and other wildlife in the area.
Attach a Leg
Providing a service to amputees who are looking to improve mobility by use of a prosthetic aid, Attach A Leg is a non-profit organisation. Petite Anse is currently looking at ways to support this charity who are performing a much needed role on the island. Head over to their site to read more about them by clicking here.
Philip is also running the London Marathon to raise funds for Attach-a-Leg – please make a donation here.
Petite Anse Hotel regularly makes charitable contributions to both local people in need and projects. Philip recently ran the London Marathon to raise funds to replace the deteriorating roof of the local community home – with the help of our guests and other contributors, he raised over US$17,000. If you’d like to make a contribution, please ask.
