Shangri-La Xian supports the Dan Yang School, which offers schooling to approximately 200 children. The school is located in one of the poorest farming areas in China. Before 2010, Dan Yang School faced many challenges such as aged facilities and lack of developmental tools, including a reading room, computers and proper lighting. During the first year of support, the hotel focused on upgrading the school’s facilities with the aim to create a positive learning environment by painting walls, adjusting the lighting and improving classroom cooling systems. Tables, chairs and a new computer with an attached printer were also donated to assist children in developing their IT skills.
Books for all
In 2012, hotel colleagues donated 117 books and helped set up the school's first library, complete with a dictionary for every student. Mr Chen, the headmaster of the Dan Yang School, was touched by this generous act and remarked that "even one book can arouse a child's interest in reading."
To promote further extracurricular activities, Shangri-La Hotel, Xian has committed to help Dan Yang School set up their first music classroom along with drums and a trumpet in 2013.
Please join us and support Dan Yang School by donating your children’s used books, desks and chairs.

At Shangri-La Xian, we have established the Care for Nature project, which aims to preserve the valuable habitats of species such as the panda and the golden monkey through maintaining and upgrading patrolling facilities. in addition, the local communities are encouraged to adopt alternative livelihoods, such as planting traditional Chinese medicines instead of collecting them in the wild, with the hope of reducing the impact of human activity on the nature reserve.
The hotel has started to upgrade the patrolling facilities of the nature reserve. It has provided tents, sleeping bags, first aid kits and infrared cameras which will aid the rangers significantly in recording rare animal species and collecting data for further research and conservation purposes. The hotel will also give seeds of popular Chinese medicinal plants to the nearby communities so that the villagers can generate income from growing and harvesting Chinese medicine in their gardens.
