Banai grew up in Jen-Bin Tribal Village. But, truthfully, her closer appreciation of the local people, events and matters was only initiated because of this project. She learned from the B&B experts on how to serve customers, how to maintain a warm attitude and how to share the local treasures with guests. She hopes her personal experiences and growth become a life model to other tribal members, and eventually, revitalize the regional economy.
Ms. Sandra Yu, the major contributor of the project, indicated that even though the program provides only 7 or 8 employment opportunities in the beginning, the message is loud and clear: our society is willing to act and to support such a seed program and we envision it to grow and expand very rapidly.
