The “I The Egyptian” foundation and Hilton Pyramids Golf have been partnering for years to provide opportunities to the youngsters in the Children at Risk institute in 6th of October city through vocational training in some of the hotel’s departments to help the youngsters integrate in society, have a positive mind-set and become an effective member in the community.
Youssef was one of the youngsters in the vocational training program. He came to the hotel in 2012 as part of this project and received training in the Laundry department in 2012, in Housekeeping in 2013 and in the Kitchen in 2014 and he continuously showed skill and a passion to succeed.
When Youssef first joined, in early 2012, one day Youssef told Ahmed Salama, the hotel’s GM, “My dream is to join Hilton as a Team Member”. After 3 years of summer training at Hilton Pyramids Golf and with the hotel team’s help, support and mentoring, Youssef became the first youngster from “I The Egyptian” to sign an employment contract with Hilton soon after his 18th birthday.
Youssef strongly believes that dreams do not come true by accident. Every bit of his dream was the result of deliberate and proactive intention. He wanted to improve his life and started to dream it & visualize it. Soon through hard work and with his enthusiasm it became reality and Youssef was able to change his life. We are SO proud of his accomplishments!
