Roger Vivier Strengthens Its Partnership With Plan International
In celebration of International Women's Day 2021, Roger Vivier strengthens its partnership with Plan International
Building A Better Future
Maison Roger Vivier recognises the important role that women play to influence global change. They are a key demographic whose opinions and voices are getting heard more and more each day. With this collaboration, the Maison is helping shape the voices of the future, the young girls of today who will become the leading women of tomorrow. The collaboration began in 2018 when Roger Vivier and Plan International launched a campaign to help children in Cameroon and Benin. This year, the partnership continues with projects that will build upon the activities implemented by Plan International and supported by Roger Vivier over the last few years. In light of the ongoing health crisis, millions of girls have stopped going to school and are at risk of dropping out permanently. As part of its next stages, and in addition to providing education for girls and continuing to support schools, the programme also aims to facilitate the economic integration of 100 young women through setting up vocational training courses and assisting them in their entry into formal employment or their creation of new businesses.
A Future After the Pandemic
Roger Vivier continues its partnership with Plan International, maintaining its commitment to provide assistance for these young women to pursue their education, even during these challenging times. In Cameroon, emergency funds have been mobilised to meet the demands of ongoing education, facilitate tutoring courses and improve studying conditions through the purchase of computers and learning materials. In Benin, teachers are being trained on distance education, and awareness campaigns on sanitary measures continue. Schools have also been supplied with thermometers, washable masks, hand sanitiser gels and other necessities. Thanks to this support, more than 700 boys and girls have gone back to primary school in both Cameroon and Benin. The programme aims to ensure the education of the girls who are most affected by the health crisis, giving them a better chance of recovering after the situation is resolved.
