In addition to the new football pitch, team members from Hilton KHBTCC also joined students from the school to help landscape the surrounding area with new trees.



A special inauguration ceremony was held to mark the official opening of the football pitch with Hilton KHBTCC team presenting Ismael Al-Amerin, Principal of Al-Sweimeh Boys School, a certificate symbolizing their ongoing commitment to the community. The official opening also included a friendly football game between Hilton KHBTCC team members and a team representing INJAZ.



Kamel Ajami, Hilton Worldwide country manager “ Jordan, commented: "I am delighted we were able to lend a helping hand with this long-awaited community facility. Today's celebration paints a perfect picture of our team's commitment towards the local community and I am very pleased we are now reaping the fruits of our on-going collaboration with INJAZ.



Muhannad Jarrah, executive director, for the Skills Building Program at INJAZ said: "This project took our partnership with Hilton KHBTCC to a new level and our respective team members have now created a real connection with the local community.
