Plant a seed - change a life
Seedlings Program is a vocational training program launched by Laguna Lăng Cô, under Banyan Tree group to provide training and job opportunities for disadvantaged local youth (18 – 24 yrs) and to give them the necessary skills to forge a successful career in hospitality industry.
With the aim of creating a practical environment where Seedling trainees can practice what they learned and build up their confidence in restaurant operation, the Seedlings dinner was open to guests at our Azura restaurant from 6:00pm cooked and served by our in-house seedlings. Menu is a set table d’hote menu with high-end class Vietnamese food where guest can choose from a 2 course or 3 course dinner.
From 2013- 2016, Seedling has reached remarkable achievements:

- Provided short-term internship opportunities for 33 interns.
In 2017, the program continues providing training opportunity for 12 more local underprivileged youths in service and kitchen field.
