Gucci names 2022 Chime for Change grantees
As part of its longstanding global gender equality campaign Chime For Change, Gucci announced on Wednesday the latest round of grants and a growing commitment for 2022.
Since its founding in 2013, the campaign has raised more than $19 million to support projects and advocacy in 89 countries, globally benefitting more than 630,000 girls and women and reaching more than 3 million family and community members.
In line with Gucci’s five-year commitment to UN Women's Generation Equality Action Coalitions, the latest round of grants from Chime For Change will support organizations across Italy to support programs to combat gender-based violence and help women survivors including Associazione Artemisia, Beawarenow, Casa Internazionale delle Donne and SvS Donna Aiuta Donna with Cascina Ri-Nascita.
It will equally support Mothers2mothers, which is committed to expanding health care services for women and children in Ghana and recruits, trains and employs women living with HIV as essential frontline health workers, as well as Brazil-based, non-governmental organization that engages men and boys in promoting gender equality, Promundo.
Moreover, it will continue to support its 2021 partners Equality Now, the Global Fund for Women, the Ms. Foundation for Women, as well as its partnership with The Meteor, a collective of journalists, artists, and activists.
The commitment coincides with the launch of the latest issue of Chime Zine, featuring a curated collection of works by contributors including: Elisa Manici on the stigma of fatness and its cultural meanings, Assa Traoré on the movement for racial justice in France and globally, Eno Pei-Jean Chen on queer culture in Taiwan and South Korea, a personal account by Dr. Ritu Singh on the role of women in the historic Indian farmers’ protest, and more.
This latest issue of the Chime Zine is available digitally on Gucci Equilibrium, Gucci’s platform for social impact and sustainability, and will be available in print later this month.
