The Leela Palaces, Hotels and Resorts welcomed Nobel Peace Laureate Kailash Satyarthi, to their Icons of India by The Leela initiative. Nobel Peace Laureate Kailash Satyarthi, envisions a world where all children are free, safe, healthy, receive a quality education, and can realize their potential. Partnering with Kailash Satyarthi Children’s Foundation (KSCF), The Leela has committed to empowering children by sponsoring 10 Bal Mitra Gram™ (BMG™) or Child Friendly Villages, an internationally recognized model for child-centered rural development while promoting child protection and child development.


Speaking on the collaboration with Nobel Peace Laureate Kailash Satyarthi, Anuraag Bhatnagar, Chief Operating Officer, The Leela Palaces, Hotels and Resorts said, “True to the Leela brand, we strive to not only be the epitome of true Indian luxury but also to remain socially conscious in everything that we do by actively contributing towards the overall development of the community. We feel privileged to be able support the great work that Kailashji has been doing and make a humble contribution towards empowering children through protection and development. Children are our future, and every child has the right to feel safe and receive quality education. We will continue to work with KSCF to make this a meaningful collaboration.”


Welcoming The Leela's association with KSCF, Nobel Peace Laureate Kailash Satyarthi said, "It gives me immense happiness to note that The Leela Palaces, Hotels and Resorts has joined hands with us to help create a child friendly world through our Bal Mitra Grams. Compassion towards children and the will to empower them to become meaningful citizens will go a long way in freeing them from shackles of exploitation."


Icons of India by The Leela is an initiative aimed at recognizing and nurturing the essence of India and the richness within through a celebration of India’s finest who are the world’s best. Through this initiative, The Leela aims to create meaningful experiences that inspire guests and allow them to connect through a shared passion. The brand had earlier announced sarod virtuosos Amaan and Ayaan Ali Bangash as their Icons of India by The Leela.


The Bangash duo recently created an EP, “We For Love” to support Kailash Satyarthi’s “Justice For Every Child” campaign and create awareness for child abuse. The proceeds from this also support Kailash Satyarthi Children’s Foundation.  The album was unveiled at an elegant evening of engaging conversations and soulful music held at The Leela Palace New Delhi. The evening was a befitting symbol of the coming together of The Leela, Nobel Peace Laureate Kailash Satyarthi and Amaan and Ayaan Ali Bangash and the synergies that can be created between brands, art, culture, music and philanthropy.


The Leela is the essence of true Indian hospitality imbued with a distinct aesthetic that celebrates the country’s traditions, art, cuisine, artisanal craft and culture and is rooted in its offering of India’s rich legacy to all its esteemed guests. As the brand gears up to embrace the next phase of its growth trajectory, it continues to evolve and focus on experiential and conscious luxury while remaining true to its ethos of “Atithi Devo Bhava – Guest is God.”
