‘We hear you’: Conrad Bengaluru collaborates with NGO Silent Expedition for World Disability Day
Conrad Bengaluru invigorated the spirit of Never Just Stay, Stay Inspired slogan into the heart of the Silicon Valley of India with a bike ride initiative with Silent Expedition members and Harley owners group (Tusker HOG Bangalore) with the cause 'We Hear You'.
To commemorate the occasion of World Disability Day, Conrad Bengaluru hosts a bike ride initiative recently with Silent Expedition members and Harley owners group for the cause 'We Hear You'. The event was flagged off at Conrad Bengaluru and was followed by a short ride of 5 km within the city center and back to the hotel premises.
Silent Expedition is an NGO for bikers with an emphasis on those with disabilities. Archana Timmaraju, the co-founder of Silent Expedition and an art teacher, has always been passionate about motorcycling and undertaken various expeditions to raise awareness about sign language and deaf women’s empowerment.
Commenting on the occasion, Srijan Vadhera, General Manager, Conrad Bengaluru said, “At Hilton, our corporate responsibility strategy revolves around the ‘Travel with Purpose’ initiative. It plays an integral role in uniting our vision ‘to fill the earth with the light & warmth of our hospitality’ with global issues that connect the business to our society.”
“In view of world disability day on 3rd December it was our small initiative to support Archana in her journey to fulfilling her vision of creating a platform for disabled women riders and travelers from national and international backgrounds to showcase their potential. This could not have been done without the support of Ms. Shirley George, Director- Tusker HOG Bangalore,” he added.
All the proceeds from this event were given to the Silent Expedition members. The hotel sponsored masks for all the members with the tagline 'We Hear You'. The purpose of the ride was to enliven and support the deaf riders with the equal opportunities that our government bodies could provide.
