eNett helps underprivileged Cambodian resident build new career

August 9, 2016

Singapore, 9 August: eNett International, a leading provider of dedicated B2B payment solutions, sees the first beneficiary of its ‘Repay the eNett Way’ complete sponsored tour guide training in Phnom Penh. Sreng Yongcheng will now become a licenced tour guide and build a new career path for himself in Cambodia’s growing tourist industry, and a more positive future outlook for his family.
“I am very thankful to be given this opportunity”, said Sreng. “Being a tour guide is a good job, and the training means I can get a tour guide licence, which will allow me to work as a tour guide in Phnom Penh city and the surrounding areas. It gives me a high level of job security, and provides a good living. It also means I can support my parents, which is important to me as I am responsible for them. Eventually, I hope to start my own travel agency.”
Launched earlier this year, ‘Repay the eNett Way’ is designed to support people impacted by greater globalisation and tourism. The initiative aims to draw industry attention to the issues faced by displaced communities in high growth travel destinations, and take a hands-on approach to making a difference to their way of life. Cambodia was the inaugural country selected to benefit from the initiative through its high levels of poverty, despite travel industry growth.
eNett CEO and Managing Director, Anthony Hynes, said, “I’m very pleased to see the first stage of our ‘Repay the eNett Way’ programme come to fruition. We wanted to move beyond simply donating funds, to creating something that allows us to make a tangible difference to individuals and communities. I look forward to hearing more updates from Sreng as he embarks on a new career path in the travel industry.”
Further initiatives will include a scholarship to a top language school to learn English - a highly sought after skill in the Cambodian tourism industry. There will also be a start-up fund to support the set-up of a community-wide sustainable business. To find out more about ‘Repay the eNett Way’, click here.
