UNLOCK THE POWER of GIRLS

Clé de Peau Beauté believes that the key to a better world lies in unlocking
the
potential and innate intelligence of girls–and education is the first step
to prepare them for success.

“Education is one of the best ladders out of poverty,”
said UNICEF Executive Director Henrietta Fore.
“While there has been significant progress in primary school enrollment for girls, too many of them are denied the opportunity to advance to secondary school.
Early marriage, poverty, discrimination and gender bias are some of the barriers that girls have to overcome to pursue their education.
We all need to do more to help remove these barriers.”

“When Clé de Peau Beauté first launched the Power of Radiance Award in March 2019,
we fully intended it to be the start of a long-term philanthropic commitment
to being a driving force for positive change.
The addition of UNICEF as a partner complements the brand’s efforts to spotlight education and aligns with our corporate vision for social value creation.
At Clé de Peau Beauté, we believe that the key to a brighter tomorrow is
to unlock the potential of girls. Together, we aim to empower our people in taking
a proactive stance with this program to make a tangible, positive difference in the world,”
said Ms. Yukari Suzuki, Chief Brand Officer of Clé de Peau Beauté.

The partnership will support UNICEF’s work in Bangladesh, Kyrgyzstan and Niger,
among other countries and regions, to promote education in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) – areas which are traditionally stifled because of stereotypes and gender norms towards girls.

Girls will also learn skills such as self-confidence, teamwork, and decision-making as well as have access to mentorships so that they can successfully transition to the workforce.

UNICEF does not endorse any company, brand, product or service.
