To honour women in the ‘Women’s History Month’, luxury brand Gucci has pledged $1 Million to help with the coordination of massive human aide project tabled by Beyonce and her team of philanthropists.
Beyonce’s BeyGOOD platform is an initiative started by the songstress in the hopes of implementing social change through the lives of women, globally.
Beyonce unveiled plans for the BeyGOOD 4 Burundi, in July of last year. The nation of Burundi is currently plagued by a shortage of clean drinking water, nearly half the nation has no access whatsoever to it.
The initiative hopes to also teach basic hygienic practices in an effort to curb disease and malnutrition in the East African country. The foundation has already built 35 wells in the country and Gucci’s donation comes in the way of their CHIME FOR CHANGE initiative, founded in 2013 as a treatise meant to “convene, unite and strengthen the voices speaking out for girls and women around the world.”
