Mexico: Accor employee commitment in Mexico rewarded by the Mexican Centre for Philanthropy
Accor Mexico won the "Best CSR practice" recognition for 2013 in the "charity work" category awarded by the Mexican Centre for Philanthropy (Centro Mexicano para la Filantropía).
This recognition rewards the commitment of the employees who have worked with the NGO Un Techo para mi País. Since 2008, Accor Mexico and Solidarity Accor have supported the NGO's projects in favour of Mexico City's poor suburban communities. In particular, the employees helped build houses and two community centres, taught cooking lessons to disadvantaged families and carried out awareness-raising initiatives in the hotels, inviting guests to make donations to the cause. They also took part in extra tutoring workshops for children and professional training for young adults.
