Global Water Challenge (GWC) is proud to announce their selection as a 2022 Hilton Global Foundation grant recipient for their efforts to promote water security and expand universal access to safe drinking water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) and women's empowerment in two countries, Brazil and Saudi Arabia. These efforts align with Hilton’s environmental, social and governance and Hilton Global Foundation priorities of destination stewardship, climate action, career development and community resilience.
The grant from the Hilton Global Foundation will support critical efforts to advance safe WASH, improve water-smart sustainable agriculture through community-based approaches and empower women through skills-building and income-generation activities.
“Water is a proven catalyst for achieving community economic transformation and resilience. We are proud to partner with the Hilton Global Foundation to advance progress on SDG 6 and partner with communities in their quest to create a more sustainable future for themselves,” said Monica Ellis, CEO of GWC.
