In addition to the many reasons why people choose Sani, we consider extremely important to mention the fact that several lodges in the Amazon have as an employment policy NO HIRE WOMEN. Also, in the local communities the jobs for women are very limited.

However, for Sani Lodge, each local person is part of the community. Sani Lodge has the SANI WARMI project and also the women can work inside the lodge, which benefits the indigenous women to be included in the workplace community.
