Corporate Social Responsibility

Shangri-La Hotel, Paris, teams up with "Play International" NGO to help through sports.

Since late 2012, Shangri-La Hotel, Paris, has supported the non-governmental organisation Play International. Created in 1999, Play International is a solidarity association that implements development programmes using sports as an educational, therapeutic and awareness-raising tool. On the local level in Paris, vulnerable children today face social and economic strife, accompanied by an array of family difficulties. Through Play International, educational modules based on sports and games are developed to help children become involved in self-development and reintegrate into society. As of today, Play International 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.

Latest News
Employees and guests of the hotel are invited to join in Play International's French programme, Playdagogie. Teams of hotel colleagues participate in different races and sports events, such as Marathon des Sables 2012, Paris 20km, and Vertigo, each year to help raise funds for the programme.

As part of Universal Children's Rights Day, Shangri-La Hotel, Paris, and Play International organise a charity dinner every year. More than 200 guests attend the dinner and all proceeds raised during the event are donated to Play International's French programme.
