Kempinski Seychelles Resort Hosts Bouncing BBQ at President’s Village Children’s Home
June 2018 – Last Saturday children from the President’s Village Children’s Home in Port Glaud were treated to a festive BBQ lunch, courtesy of Kempinski Seychelles Resort Baie Lazare. A team of volunteers from the luxury hotel visited the facility as part of their ongoing corporate social responsibility initiatives and spent an afternoon entertaining the children and preparing a sumptuous lunch for the home’s residents and staff.
The highlight of the afternoon was undoubtedly the two jumping castles that were erected for the children’s entertainment. After all the energy spent jumping on the castles and playing games with the hotel staff, a big appetite was worked up, and a very enthusiastic group of children and staff enjoyed the alfresco BBQ lunch served in the home’s garden.
“I’m not sure who had more fun today – the children or our team!” said the hotel’s human resources manager, Cheryl Marie. “We wanted to organise a memorable afternoon for the children, but it is clear that this interaction has also made a huge impression on our team members. We try to give back to the community wherever we can, and each year the team at the President’s Village Children’s Home are such gracious hosts for our ideas and our initiatives.”
The hotel team donated a gift to each child before they departed, and promised to return again, next year.
A certificate of appreciation was presented by the Seychelles’ Children’s Foundations’ PR, Project & Communications Manager, Carol Andriamaro, to the team. Mrs Andriamaro graciously thanked the team for their contribution. “This is the second time we have participated in such a successful event with Kempinski Seychelles Resort, and their open-hearted ideas are highly appreciated. We look forward to repeating this activity, once again, next year.”
The President’s Village Children’s Home provides a stable family environment for 40 young residents whose parents are faced with various socio-economic difficulties.
