“Thanks to our partnership with the Child Care Centre, the Junior Hoteliers programme has offered a great opportunity for students to expand their horizons and discover the myriad of careers available in Oman’s burgeoning hospitality industry. Through it, we hope to inspire more of Oman’s youth, to tap into their vast potential, and build up the next generation of hospitality leaders,” said Nabil Al Zadjali, executive assistant manager (EAM) at Al Bustan Palace.

The ongoing partnership with the Child Care Centre aims to empower orphans by providing them with vocational training and educational programs, equipping them with tools to improve their lives.

The Junior Hoteliers programme falls under The Ritz-Carlton group’s ‘Community Footprints programme’ aimed at creating a positive impact on the lives of others and making a meaningful difference.
