Cooperation with SOS Children’s Villages Ukraine
The value of the family has always been an important part of Oriflame’s philosophy, both at the stage of creation and at the stage of business development. Therefore, since 2013, the company has decided to support SOS Children’s Villages. Oriflame values are very similar to ours: “The child’s best opportunities for development are received in a caring family, with the support of a strong social community, when the child’s interests are the basis of all actions, when children take an active part in finding solutions to emerging problems.”
All Oriflame partners share this stance, show a desire to make a difference in the process of creating a new society where people will support each other.
That is why Oriflame provides an opportunity for every consultant to make a donation of 2 hryvnias to SOS Children’s Villages while placing an order .
The collected funds will be used to support the following programs:
- support families in difficult living conditions;
- creation and maintenance of foster families;
- support of young people who are leaving care;
- organization of short-term foster family;
- introduction of international standards for the protection of children’s rights.
