Shangri-La’s Care For People Project

Embrace, Shangri-La's Care for People Project , was launched in September 2009. The project committed each hotel to a 5-10-year partnership with a chosen beneficiary working on children’s health or education programmes.

Whether it is a school, health center or orphanage, the entity must require resources that the hotel can very ably deliver on. These include infrastructure support, fundraising, life skills training and even hotel apprenticeships.

Yearly goals and targets are defined for a period of 5-10 years, seeing children through until they would have finished their higher education and are capable of caring for themselves and finding employment based on their own merits. Whenever possible, hotels are encouraged to look at performing hotel skills training with the goal of offering students a sustainable career, whether in or outside the hotel.
