    In addition to the many reasons why people choose Sani Lodge, 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 SANI WARMI project, the women can work inside the lodge as well, that benefits to the indigenous women to be included in the workplace community.
