Hilton continues to Invest in sustainable travel and tourism in Africa
Through its youth opportunity programme, Transcorp Hilton Abuja, Nigeria, is in a partnership to provide skills and training opportunities for young women.
Hilton, the international hotel franchise, has said that it is driving sustainable travel and tourism in Africa. The hotel group said that since it announced its “Big Five” commitment less than a year ago, it has allocated $626,000 towards community partnerships and projects.
Hilton’s five areas of commitment to sustainability are youth opportunity, water stewardship, anti-human trafficking, local sourcing, and wildlife protection. Its investments include hotel-level project funding, as well as contributions through the newly founded Hilton Effect Foundation and Hilton’s global partnerships with the World Wildlife Fund, International Youth Foundation, and Vital Voices.
Through its youth opportunity programme, Transcorp Hilton Abuja, Nigeria, is in a partnership to provide skills and training opportunities for young women. In Lusaka, Zambia, Hilton is tackling water access needs in the community by building water pipes and pumps to support local school children who are the most at risk from water-related illnesses.
Hilton Yaounde is extending its partnership to create integration programmes and work experiences for women who have been victims of human trafficking. The hotel, in Kenya, has continued to sponsor cares for orphaned elephants and support their reintegration into the wild.
Hilton has been operating continuously in Africa since 1959.
