Hyatt Raipur and SOS Children’S Village Raipur
SOS Children’s Villages of India is an independent, non-governmental and non-profit organization working for the holistic development of parentless children, women and children belonging to vulnerable families. Founded in 1949 in Austria, SOS Children's Villages began its operations in India in 1964. For over 50 years, we have been reaching out to over 30,000 children and families every year through 32 SOS Children's Villages and 32 community projects in India.
At SOS Children’s Villages, children are provided with a vibrant environment to encourage an over-all personality development. Apart from getting formal school education, children are been enrolled into various informal and non-formal education systems. Hyatt Raipur has been supporting SOS Children's Villages as of this year during Hyatt's Global Month of Service and will continue supporting them through volunteer activities and educating the children.
The Hyatt Community Grant will ensure that children at the SOS Children’s Village at Raipur have easy access to computers enabling them to complete their school assignments and hone their skills in informal and non-formal education. The basic premise of the above project is to install computers in the family homes at the Raipur Village. This will enable them to complete the school assignments at ease, keep them updated with new technology/ information, hone their English language skills and empower them to compete with the children from the mainstream communities. This will further help them to live a life of dignity and financial independence as contributing members of the society.
