Hilton Supply Management

Equitable Career Training & Access for Young People in Egypt

Ingy Helal, HSM’s Regional Procurement Director for Egypt and North Africa, spent a one-month Hilton-sponsored sabbatical volunteering with Egypt’s Meshwary (My Journey) project. A collaboration between UNICEF and Egypt’s youth sports ministry, Meshwary teaches skills like work readiness, interpersonal communication and financial literacy to disadvantaged young people.

After gaining first-hand insights into challenges faced by Meshwary participants, Helal engaged HSM to help improve job access and grow economic potential. HSM and Hilton partnered with Meshwary, creating an internship and training program designed to promote gender equality and establish a career development pipeline for Egyptian youth interested in hospitality.
