Hilton Worldwide announced recently a three-year partnership with Room to Read - a global nonprofit organization focused on improving literacy and gender equality in education. The partnership supports Room to Read’s holistic approach to literacy and girls’ education in South and Southeast Asia - aiming to reach more than 2,000 young people in the first phase of the program - and it solidifies Hilton Worldwide as the organization’s leading hospitality partner in India. In addition, Hilton Worldwide will leverage its hotels across the Asia Pacific region to engage team members, guests and business partners in its work with Room to Read. During the month of May, Hilton Worldwide will also support Room to Read’s annual spring fundraising campaign promoting the Girls’ Education program by matching donations up to $150,000 beginning today through May 31.
"This partnership offers young people the fundamental literacy and life skills to succeed in school and beyond," said Jennifer Silberman, vice president, corporate responsibility, Hilton Worldwide. Room to Read is recognized by international development experts for its innovative approach. – SG
