Community Investment – A Guest Donates Pink’s Salary

After the Tsunami of 2004, Pink had to abandon her education to find employment to support her family. When Andaman Discoveries started a community center in the village, Pink enthusiastically joined various projects and demonstrated strong leadership qualities. “Pink is a standout superstar,” commented tourism professional Joe Staiano. Wild Asia took note of Pink, too: “You have a phenomenal leader in Pink. Her work with the youth group is awesome. I’m sure with her as a role model, the [youth group members] will be become effective community leaders.” Pink is the force behind the Bamboo Savings Project and the recycling- and mangrove conservation programs.
Julia’s donation will pay Pink’s wages, enabling her to return to school and complete her education. It is a wonderful gift – not only does it provide Pink with a stable income, but also promises future opportunities. Both Pink and Andaman Discoveries are deeply touched by Julia’s wonderful gift.
