Congratulations to the Newest Hilton Prize Laureate, SHOFCO
Please join the Hilton Prize Coalition in congratulating the newest winner of the Conrad N. Hilton Humanitarian Prize, SHOFCO (Shining Hope for Communities). As the 23rd recipient of the Prize, SHOFCO joins the ranks of the world’s most accomplished humanitarian organizations—the Hilton Prize Laureates—who over the course of the past two decades have been recognized for their extraordinary contributions to the alleviation of human suffering.
SHOFCO is a grassroots movement that catalyzes large-scale transformation in urban slums. Based in Nairobi, Kenya, the organization provides critical services that disrupt the survival model—giving people the opportunity to not just survive, but thrive. SHOFCO’s programs, which include health care, economic empowerment, and sustainable delivery of clean water through a cutting-edge aerial piping system, are always demand-driven and community led. Through collective community action, SHOFCO creates sustainable, systemic change within urban informal settlements.
It is this spirit of innovation that unites the Hilton Prize Coalition, as members continue to explore solutions together through collaborative initiatives that leverage the expertise of each Laureate. We welcome and look forward to working with SHOFCO.
