Corporate Social Responsibility

Shangri-La Hotel, Paris teams up with Sport San Frontières to help through sports.

Since late 2012, Shangri-La Hotel, Paris has supported the non-governmental organisation "Sport Sans Frontières" (Sport without Borders). Created in 1999, SSF is an international solidarity association which implements development programmes using sport as an educational, therapeutic and awareness-raising tool. On a local level in Paris, vulnerable children today face social and economic strife, accompanied by an array of family difficulties. Through SSF, educational modules based on sports and games are developed for the children and aimed at triggering their self-development and reintegration into society. As of today, SSF has been declared a 'public interest' organisation and approved by the French Ministry of Health, Youth and Sport.

Funding Support
Shangri-La Hotel, Paris plans to support teachers and students in developing their preventive and awareness approach programme. This will be done through the creation of the "kit Playdagogique" which allows the teachers to set up sport sessions containing strong educational messages in the arenas of nutrition and obesity, violence, harassment, and the fragile relationships between girls and boys.
