Why we’re working together
Unicef and Dove are partnering to build self-esteem and body confidence in 10 million young people in Brazil, India, and Indonesia by 2022.
“Young people are some of the world’s best advocates, creators, and thinkers. Yet, feelings of disempowerment, low self-esteem, and a lack of confidence too often prevent them from speaking out, standing up for what they believe in and reaching their full potential,” – Unicef Executive Director Henrietta Fore.
We’re addressing the issue
Our new partnership with Dove brings together the specialised skills, experience, and resources of two world-leading organisations. Unicef, the world’s leading children’s organisation, joins with the Dove Self Esteem Project, the largest provider of self-esteem and body confidence education in the world.
The Dove Self Esteem Project has reached 60 million young people and we are very happy to be partnering with UNICEF to empower 10 million more young people, especially girls. Issues with self-esteem and body confidence can have serious implications for girls’ development; so it is critical that we work to address them, and help girls become the leaders of tomorrow.
