In view of the upcoming Carnival activities, Hilton Aruba Caribbean Resort & Casino orchestrated an internal Our Kids Matter event in the ballroom, in which eleven local social agencies set up information booths and were available for Team Members to ask questions, raise concerns and obtain information about the availability of social services on the island.

The resort invited its Team Members to attend during working hours. Parents, grandparents, siblings, uncles, and aunts are often confronted with stressful situations without knowing where to turn for support.

It was a unique opportunity to interact with experts and learn more about the existing social organizations where support can be found for the protection, education, growth and care of children in our community. It was great to show Team Members that help is available for everyone, says Glenn Farro, Director of Human Resources.

Numerous organizations participated in the informal and informative conversations:  Fundacion Pa Nos Muchanan, whose vision is to provide education to children 12 years old or younger and give them the opportunity for optimal development, bringing parents and educators together; Tienda di Education, supporting parents and educators in parenting their children 18 years or younger; Wit Gele Kruis, promoting, activating and optimizing health care for the Aruban community; Sociale Zaken, the Department of Social Affairs in charge of care, welfare, legal aid, and guidance; Rode Kruis, the Red Cross Aruba; FADA, an educational anti-drug foundation, aiming to prevent the use and abuse of drugs on the island; FEPO a foundation where help may be found for the hearing impaired, and many more.

Our Kids Matters event was a pilot program, and the resort looks forward to having more events like this in the future.
