In March Gucci and CHIME FOR CHANGE announced a new partnership with Beyoncé and UNICEF USA to bring clean, safe water to the children of Burundi, known as the “Heart of Africa.”
Through her BeyGOOD philanthropic arm, Beyoncé launched the multi-year BEYGOOD4BURUNDI initiative with UNICEF USA in 2017 to support programs to improve water, sanitation and basic hygiene practices in the hardest-to-reach areas of the landlocked East African nation, where nearly half the population had no access to safe water.
“Gucci and CHIME FOR CHANGE are proud to stand with Beyoncé and UNICEF to help change the lives of hundreds of thousands of girls and women in Burundi,” said Marco Bizzarri, President and CEO of Gucci. "Through our commitment to BeyGood4Burundi, we continue the mission of CHIME FOR CHANGE to provide education, health and justice to girls and women globally.”
The UNICEF/Gucci team of runners continues to support BEYGOOD4BURUNDI project.
