Some of our initiatives are:
+ training/employing university students as Green Honda Drivers. Most guys trying to better themselves at University are always short of money. We encourage further education and give preference to University students to fulfill our part time employment requirements.
+ support our own CAT FC – football (soccer) club. Training three nights per week is open to all (including you guys our customersJ). We play for fun & exercise – we have a good youth following who like to play. Many alternatives that are presented to our youth are negative lifestyles, such as gambling and drugs, by doing what we do, we educate for a better life. What really gives us a buzz is when one of our youths becomes good enough to be invited to train for professional football clubs.
+ ‘Go Outside on Weekends’. As Cambodia slowly develops – many problems that once were not part of our culture are becoming a reality. Such as lack of exercise, unhealthy dietary habits, not spending enough time together with the family & the list goes on. Based upon Australia’s 1970 ‘Life, be in it’ life style change campaign – corporate employees are encouraged to get outside, with their families, on the weekends. We organize cycling, picnics, walks, outside game events and similar. It is not uncommon for Cambodian senior staff both in private and public sector to work seven days a week. Many also never take annual holidays for fear that they may not get their job back once their holidays have concluded. We know this is unhealthy and unproductive so being encouraged to spend one day a week with their families is a start.
