Marriott India partners with Project Buniyaad by Honda India Foundation, ET HospitalityWorld

Marriott India announced a strategic partnership with Project Buniyaad led by Honda India Foundation (HIF), furthering its commitment to community development by integrating initiatives with Skill India and promoting women empowerment across the country.

The Buniyaad – Athmanirbharta Ka Aadhar project, launched by Honda India Foundation, focuses on equipping individuals with essential skills through education, vocational training and promoting environmental conservation in the North-East region of India and the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir. Marriott India, known for its excellence in hospitality and dedication to improving the well-being of the community, is honored to be associated with this influential initiative.

Marriott India’s initiative to invest in training youth in the hospitality industry demonstrates a commendable commitment to both social responsibility and industry development. By allocating resources to equip these individuals with valuable skills and knowledge, Marriott not only empowers them to build sustainable careers but also enriches the hospitality sector with a diverse talent pool. Offering paid internships after training further underscores Marriott’s commitment to promoting inclusive growth and creating opportunities for marginalized communities. This initiative is not only changing lives but also contributing positively to the broader economy by providing more equitable access to career paths in the hospitality industry.
