A UNICEF corporate partner since 2018
Partnering for an improved water supply.
'Every drop counts.' With this slogan, GARDENA and UNICEF started a long-term partnership on World Water Day on 22 March, 2018. The company supports UNICEF’s global water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) programmes. The goal? Help provide more than 100,000 people with access to clean drinking water over the next three years.
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 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.
Within the scope of the partnership, GARDENA will provide a significant contribution to UNICEF’s WASH programmes worldwide with the aim of helping to provide more than 100,000 people with access to clean drinking water over the next three years. The partnership builds on both UNICEF and GARDENA’s reach and strengths to make a contribution to the global effort to fulfill Sustainable Development Goal 6: Ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all.
