Auberge Resorts Collection Launches “Enriching Lives” Initiative

Auberge Resorts Collection introduces “Enriching Lives,” an initiative that aims to uplift communities through education and learning in the destinations where the group’s properties operate. Each property team will work together to offer mentorships, raise money for nonprofit organizations and scholarships through fundraising events, and volunteer time and resources to uplift those in need. Here are a few highlights.

Throughout the year, the property hosts teenagers from the YMCA to visit Gracie’s Farm, meet with the resort’s veterinarian and farmers and explore the Wasatch Mountains.

Malliouhana, Auberge Resorts Collection in Anguilla is working with Alwyn Allison Richardson Primary School (AARPS) to reintroduce farming to the island, which currently depends heavily on imports for a significant portion of its produce.
