KGH Group – CSR

KGH Group’s Corporate Social Responsibility – CSR

The KGH Foundation, a part of the KGH Group of Hotels and Resorts, was established to instigate and manage the groups Corporate Social Responsibility programs. Firstly to improve our own practices in all our hotels. Secondly, to focus on health, education, environment and to provide social, economic & welfare support for the underprivileged.

KGH Foundation – Giving back to society.

The KGH Group CSR program has a deep meaning to the lives of our Board of Directors. It reflects that our lives have been affected similarly to those we seek to help. We have both lost and saved loved ones to
cancer. In addition we have worked with victims sold to brothels and personally feel about the issues we work for.
