Avon funds critical educational programmes for girls and women

 January 14, 2020

Since 1886, Avon has been amazed by stories of fearless women breaking barriers across the globe who are doing it for themselves, for their families, and for their communities. 

But Avon knows there is still more work to do, with millions of women and girls unable to fulfil their dreams due to economic, social and political barriers, or simply because of their gender.

To celebrate the stand4her launch, the Avon Foundation for Women is donating an additional $100,000 USD to fund education programmes for girls and women.

Avon offers a training programme to provide millions of Representatives with the skills and training to grow their businesses. Modules offered enhance beauty knowledge and basic business skills, as well as improving confidence and personal network development.
