The Westin Resort Nusa Dua, Bali celebrated the spirit of goodwill this festive season by helping to create a green environment for children in need. Under the banner of the Starwood initiative ‘Care for Community’, Associates from the Jakarta Sales Office recently visited the Sekolah Alternatif Untuk Anak Jalanan (Alternative School for Street Children) to donate a selection of plants.
Ms. Naomi Sihombing together with her team also hosted an array of fun activities and word games for the children as well as distributed goodie bags filled with nutritious snacks. A plant was hung in front of the school to symbolize the visit and watering cans were handed out to nurture this small garden setting.
Care for Community by The Westin Resort Nusa Dua, Bali is a ‘green’ initiative that is just one of many programs on Starwood’s Care agenda. Having successfully achieved Green Globe Benchmarked Silver status for the third time, the resort remains committed to operating to the world’s highest environmental standards.
“This visit was undertaken to help create a healthier place of learning for children. We hope that early exposure to the importance of plants will help the children understand that green living is essential to the future of our planet,” commented Mr. Bipan Kapur, General Manager of the resort.
