Since 2005, Gucci has contributed more than US $20 million to UNICEF’s work, focusing on the ‘Schools for Africa’ initiative which helps the most disadvantaged children, including girls, orphans and those living in extreme poverty, gain access to quality education. To date, this partnership has positively impacted the lives of more than 7.5 million children living in sub-Saharan Africa and China.


A DECADE OF PARTNERSHIP

Gucci has consistently supported UNICEF’s programs in Malawi and Mozambique, with a view to creating sustainable change for the children, families and communities in these two countries.

GUCCI and UNICEF are about to celebrate the 10 years of the partnership.

CHIME FOR CHANGE

Founded by Gucci, Beyoncé and Salma Hayek Pinault in 2012, CHIME FOR CHANGE is a global campaign focused on girls’ and women’s empowerment. It serves to convene, unite and strengthen voices speaking out for girls and women around the world, and to raise funds, through crowd-funding, for non-profit organizations pursuing change in the areas of education, health and justice.

UNICEF has received support from CHIME’s network for activities such as providing school scholarships for girls, and immunizations to women in order to eliminate maternal and newborn tetanus.

With UNICEF, Salma Hayek Pinault visited Syrian refugees in Lebanon in 2015 to draw attention to the urgent humanitarian needs of children and families whose lives have been upended by the conflict in Syria. CHIME for the Children of Syria, is a crowd-funding appeal to help UNICEF provide children with learning opportunities and psycho-social support services.

CURRENT COMMITMENT

Gucci has committed to make a further €1 million (about US$ 1.3 million) contribution to UNICEF’s work before the end of 2016. In consultation with UNICEF, Gucci is channeling this new donation towards education initiatives in Burkina Faso, a country where only 65% of girls go to school, compared to 76% of boys.
