From time to time Shalati uses contract workers from the community as the need arises. These include for example building contractors and electricians. Fresh produce, including eggs, vegetables, etc are purchased from the local trade and used for the meals at Shalati. Some of the utensils like salt & pepper pots, salad bowls and other containers are handcrafted by ladies from the community and sold to management at the lodge.
