For over 50 years, GARDENA has been one of the leading manufacturers of intelligent, innovative products and systems for garden care and watering. As part of its corporate social responsibility, GARDENA attaches great importance to a responsible and wise use of water as a precious resource. For this reason, GARDENA has decided to support UNICEF, who is a proven partner with the skills, reach and experience in WASH to help provide sustainable assistance and take action during acute crises.

UNICEF’s Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) team works in over 100 countries worldwide to help ensure a continuous water supply for children and families in communities in need of safe water; helps equip schools with sanitation facilities to enable as many children as possible to attend; and helps provide clean water supplies in emergency situations or after natural disasters.

The partnership builds on both UNICEF and Gardena’s reach and strengths to make a contribution to the global effort to SDG Goal 6: Ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all.
