UNICEF and H&M in Global Partnership to Promote Girls’ Education and HIV/AIDS Prevention GENEVA/NEW YORK/STOCKHOLM, 6 July 2004 - UNICEF today announced a new partnership and thanked the global fashion company H&M for its donation of $1.5 million toward UNICEF girls?education programmes worldwide and HIV/AIDS prevention programmes in Cambodia. The donation will be given over a three-year period. H&M will support UNICEF’s global initiative for accelerating girls?education, "25 by 2005". 121 million children are out of school, most of them are girls. The donation will help thousands of girls obtain the same access to basic education as boys. In addition, thousands of adolescents in Cambodia will receive HIV/AIDS awareness training, a toll-free hotline for HIV/AIDS counselling and information will be established, 75 youth club associations will be started, and 2,500 teachers will receive HIV/AIDS prevention training. "Thanks to H&M’s generous donation, thousands of children’s lives will be changed and improved," said UNICEF Executive Director, Carol Bellamy. "H&M is showing how corporate sponsors can use their resources to work for the good of children." For H&M, the alliance with UNICEF highlights the company’s supportive and responsible global role. "The new partnership communicates the importance of social responsibility for H&M, its employees and customers," said Rolf Eriksen, CEO of H&M. 밫he presence of H&M on four continents makes us sensitive to cultural differences," said Eriksen. 밊or us it means respect for human rights and the responsibility for the effects of our business on the local environment." "H&M takes responsibility for the way our products are produced, said Ingrid Schullstr?, manager environment and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). "The alliance with UNICEF is an important step forward for H&M뭩 efforts in the area of CSR. Moreover, it is also in line with our participation in the UN Global Compact." The Global Compact is a United Nations-driven initiative that seeks to advance responsible corporate citizenship through the power of collective action, so that business can be part of the solution to the challenges of globalisation. The alliance with H&M marks the UNICEF Swedish Committee for UNICEF first global initiative. "We are indeed very happy for this partnership since corporate support is increasingly important for our work," said V?onique L?nerblad, Executive Director of the Swedish Committee for UNICEF. "UNICEF is completely dependent on voluntary contributions and assistance from both the public and the private sector is required to achieve development for the most vulnerable children of the world." * * *
