SOS Children’s Villages International is an independent, non-governmental, nonprofit international development organization working to meet the needs and protect children’s interests and rights around the world. Founded in 1949 by Austrian philanthropist, Hermann Gmeiner, SOS Children’s Villages International works with communities, partners and states to ensure that the rights of all children, in every society, are fulfilled.
With a vision that every child belongs to a family and grows up with love, respect and security, the mission of SOS Children’s Villages International is to build families for children in need, to help them shape their own futures and to share in the development of their communities. Each donation from Radisson Hotel Group will sponsor a child’s education, providing a future for them. This includes offering the children a potential job at one of Radisson Hotel Group’s properties upon completion of their education.
Sharing similar core values of courage, trust, commitment and accountability to Radisson Hotel Group, this heartwarming initiative strengthens the strong partnership between Radisson Hotel Group and SOS Children’s Villages International. Leveraging ‘Every Moment Matters’, Radisson Hotel Group’s signature service philosophy, the ‘Make a Difference’ campaign aims to drive awareness of the charity’s good cause and improve children’s lives and ambitions for a bright future.
