HOTELS WITH HEART FUNDRAISING INITIATIVE is the official philanthropic campaign of St Giles Hotel Group, which focuses on the empowerment and education of vulnerable and troubled youth. Born out of the desire to breathe a deeper meaning into the purpose and raison d’etre of the St Giles Hotels Group, the Hotels with Heart Fundraising Initiative is committed to improving the communities within which St Giles’ Hotel Group operates.
Hotels with Heart is exclusively partnered with Street Child United, a UK charity using the power of sport, specifically international sports events, to change the negative perceptions and treatment of street-connected children everywhere.
THE CORE ISSUE: Across the world there are street-connected young people living on, working in or at risk of the streets. These children and young people are stigmatised, mistreated and marginalised by society. They are routinely denied their basic human rights. Their voices are rarely heard.
WHAT STREET CHILD UNITED DOES: We use the power of sport to provide a global platform for street children to be heard, so they can receive the protection, support and opportunities that every child is entitled to. Ahead of the world’s biggest sporting competitions, we organise international sports events inviting street children to be at the centre of the call for their rights, challenging the way street children are negatively seen and treated around the world.
Street Child United are the proud organisers of the Street Child World Cup and Street Child Cricket World Cup.
