Reaching a common goal.
In developing and emerging countries, the travel sector makes up nearly 10 percent of GDP, creating new jobs, new companies, and economic development. The success of our business is directly tied to the success of our communities, and Hilton Worldwide is committed to fostering economic growth and community involvement where we live and work around the world.
Serving Local Communities
Every day, we volunteer our time, talent, and resources to address local community needs. From providing charitable contributions of food, shelter, and clothing to providing educational programs that help underserved populations, we bring a unique knowledge to helping organizations plan and prepare better for disaster.
DoubleTree by Hilton Teaching Kids to CARE: In 2010, DoubleTree by Hilton team members, participating schoolchildren, and community members worked to collect non-perishable food items for local food banks and philanthropic charities. For every non-perishable food item a student or team member collected for their community, DoubleTree by Hilton made a donation to the World Food Program USA to benefit School Meals.

Supporting Local Economic Growth
Every hotel we open employs local people, sources locally, and strengthens the community, but we are especially proud to open properties that expand opportunities in hospitality and enhance local tourism. In 2011, Hilton Worldwide opened the Hilton Windhoek, Namibia’s first five-star hotel and the 50th Hilton Worldwide hotel in the Middle East and Africa.
Preventing Child Trafficking
Hilton Worldwide is committed to upholding internationally respected human rights principles and preventing child trafficking and exploitation from taking place in our hotels and destinations. In 2011, Hilton Worldwide signed the Code of Conduct for the Protection of Children from Sexual Exploitation in Travel and Tourism.
