As part of its 150th anniversary last year, the Kimberly-Clark Foundation distributed three $150,000 philanthropic grants to nonprofit organizations. The non-profit organizations work in the company’s key areas of focus: empowering women and girls, maternal and child health, and access to water and sanitation.
In a first for the company, employees from around the world voted which global nonprofit projects would receive the grants, ultimately choosing She’s the First, Project HOPE and Water.org.
A year later, the company shares how the nonprofit recipients benefitted from its grants.
According to K-C, She’s the First has launched a new game for girls to help teach healthy relationships and create safe personal boundaries, while Water.org has reached an additional 30,000 people with the WaterCredit program that provides micro-loans to people in need of water and sanitation at home.
Project HOPE has provided training for health care workers in emergency obstetric and newborn care and equipped clinics with the resources they need most.
“We look forward to continuing to provide Better Care for a Better World through nonprofit partnerships like these and are proud to work with our teams who care for their communities every day,” commented Kimberly-Clark.
