Harsha L’Acqua

After being inspired by her father’s philanthropic work with Mother Teresa and time spent working for international hotel brands, Harsha L’Acqua combined her dedication to philanthropy with her passion for luxury hospitality by founding Saira Hospitality. Saira establishes meaningful partnerships between hotels and the communities they reside in by running bespoke pop-up schools to empower locals to get employment in hospitality. Since its inception, Saira has had 361 students graduate through partnerships with the likes of Nobu Hotels, Hilton, Rosewood, Pan Pacific and Citizen M. Saira has run schools globally over the past eight years and after running a programme in London in 2022, the organisation is now running multiple programmes running across different areas of the capital per year going forward.
