Affordable
housing
Why this is important
In the developing world, 1.1 billion people live in run-down urban neighborhoods – that’s 1.1 billion human beings with no roof over their heads. Due to high costs, ownership of apartments and homes tends to be the exclusive domain of the affluent classes. Hence, there is a need for business models enabling the less privileged segments of the population to acquire their own homes or to renovate existing housing units.
Community
development
Why this is important
There are numerous regions in the world in which gender equality, civil rights and peaceful coexistence cannot be taken for granted. The Hilti Foundation supports social cultural and economic initiatives that encourage people to improve their living conditions through self-initiative and to live an independent and free life.
Projects
Culture
Why this is important
Culture promotes the mutual understanding between human beings of all classes and nurtures the fundamental values of modern society. With its cultural initiatives, the Hilti Foundation aims at promoting the personal development of creative artists and making their works of art accessible to a wide public.

Disaster
relief
Why this is important
The destruction caused by natural disasters is usually enormous and the affected countries are rarely able to cope with the challenge of reconstruction. Emergency disaster relief is a perfectly normal act of solidarity for the Hilti Foundation. Besides it also offers long-term assistance in the wake of natural disasters as well as preventive measures like projects promoting earthquake-resistant construction methods.
Education
Why this is important
Basic education is a human right. It forms the basis for the cultural identity of every individual, of society as a whole and peaceful coexistence. Our educational activities promote self-determination and the capacity to shape one’s own destiny.
Social
entrepreneurship
Why this is important
Social entrepreneurship is the part of corporate activity that uses innovative and sustainable methods to bring about positive social change. The objective of social entrepreneurship is to create lasting solutions in fields such as education or the fight against poverty in order to help people lead an independent and meaningful life.
