Foxy and Unicef Spain. 10 years of a strategic alliance to transform the reality of children’s lives
Long-term commitments make it possible to generate real changes with a high impact on children’s lives; a good example of this are the results we have been achieving every day for the past 10 years in our partnership with UNICEF
The Sustainable Development Goals set a common agenda for 2030 that is both ambitious and challenging. That is why, since 2013, we have sought to forge a strategic and long-term partnership to support UNICEF in accompanying the most disadvantaged communities in their sustainable development, with a focus on the most vulnerable children
Undoubtedly, the sum of commitment and support contributes to supporting the well-being of children and adolescents around the world. But it is precisely the long-term view that generates profound and impactful changes and makes it possible to transform children’s reality by not only addressing their immediate needs, but also by having an impact on their development and vital growth, their future opportunities, as well as those of their communities.
For Foxy Spain, the best example of this is our alliance with UNICEF Spain that has been going strong for 10 years now, which we use as a launchpad for jointly addressing inequality in learning through education, as well as promoting hygiene and health in school environments. A high-impact alliance with which we have already contributed to improving the lives of more than 67,000 children in Mali and Ivory Coast.
In this decade of partnership, we have contributed to improving school enrolment and achievement rates in Mali while improving the quality of water and sanitation facilities in schools. These measures have a particularly positive impact on the schooling of girls, who, when they reach adolescence, need the school environment to guarantee their needs.
In addition, since 2019, Foxy has focused its support on the education of vulnerable girls in Ivory Coast, sustainably improving access, permanence and quality learning in regions with lower access and completion rates at primary and secondary levels, where girls lag ten points behind boys. Efforts that are leading to improvements in education in a country that, despite the still great challenges, is on track to achieve SDG4 on “quality education”.
These ten years of partnership prove the value of stable engagement and the cumulative impact and sustained change that result from it. Long-standing partnerships enable the possibility of ongoing work advocating for systemic change.
That is why today we are proud to look back and see the great progress we have made together with Unicef Spain since 2013; we also face the future with enthusiasm for the positive impact we will continue to generate, in order to improve the lives of thousands of children and adolescents.
A benchmark alliance for our brand that shows us how to continue building long-term agreements that enable us to face present and future challenges.
