Three Tree Hill Lodge has invested heavily in social responsibility programmes. All staff receive sustainability induction training where they learn about good environmental practices, which apply not only to reducing their environmental impact in the workplace, but can also be applied in their homes and communities. Staff are encouraged to come up with ideas on improving the business as well as projects in the community.
Employment opportunities are given to the local community as a first priority and subsequent training not only includes job-related skills training but also includes personal development such as; personal budgeting/savings, relationships and conflict resolution, and wellness training including HIV/AIDS through Life Line, conducted in Zulu.
Three Trees is actively involved in the local community. The lodge fundraises through the Three Tree Social Community Fund, R20 per guest per night is donated to this fund to benefit local schools and provide mentorship to entrepreneurs in the village.
