Friends of Sala Bai Australia (FOSBA) was formed in 2005 by four hospitality professionals. Since then, the organisation has raised funds and support for Sala Bai through its growing network of more than 150 businesses and individuals.
Functions are held where contributors to the Friends of Sala Bai meet and share their passion for supporting underprivileged young Cambodians through education and training in hospitality, one of the fastest growing industries in Cambodia.
The students of the Blue Mountains International Hotel Management School at Torrens University Australia are very involved in fundraising activities, pledging a substantial amount every year. They undertake a range of fundraising activities, including organising, hosting and serving at an annual charity dinner at the school.
The Australian hospitality industry supports the Friends of Sala Bai by allowing us to give short guest speaker presentations about the Sala Bai Hotel School at events such as conferences, congresses and Annual General Meetings.
Every year several Friends visit the hotel school in Siam Reap to maintain friendly and active relationships with Sala Bai. Some Friends even provide professional services and assistance to the school while visiting.
We appreciate the fact that a lot of our Friends have supported
the project for many, many years.
