Discussing "Girls' education as a catalyst for change" at the 2022 Hilton Humanitarian Symposium and Prize Ceremony

It’s all about the Power of Perseverance

As the 2021 Hilton Humanitarian Prize Laureate, we were thrilled that CAMFED’s Co-Executive, Angeline Murimirwa, accompanied by CAMFED USA’s Executive Director, Brooke Hutchinson, was able to join the Hilton Humanitarian Symposium and Prize Ceremony in person in Beverly Hills, California this year, under the theme “The Power of Perseverance.” 

While last year’s ceremony – held virtually in light of the global COVID-19 pandemic – was spectacularly well-orchestrated, there’s nothing like meeting the dedicated and passionate people that make up the Hilton Prize community in three dimensions!  The world faces enormous challenges, but the work of the Hilton Prize laureates  – and their perseverance – should give us all hope.
