2008-2018
A DECADE SUPPORTING
SURVIVORS

Providing financial backing for women’s refuges and centers, as well as grants and mentorship for social entrepreneurs innovating solutions to protect women.

“Kering Foundation’s strong and sustained support has motivated others to become involved by our side.”
Sakina M’Sa

AND BREAKING THE SILENCE

Raising awareness on this issue through internal training sessions on domestic violence for staff, in order to create a supportive workplace for survivors and via international campaigns around the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women.

60% of Kering trained staff now know how to react if they witness a form of violence. 45% have already applied this knowledge.

FOR WOMEN TO LIVE FREE
FROM VIOLENCE.

For women in different countries, cultures and situations to access the support they need, we partner with a cross-section of local experts. Survivor organizations providing frontline support at a nationwide level; specialized services addressing specific gender violence issues such as Female Genital Mutilation; Women’s Funds who support grassroots initiatives; and finally innovators of alternative models that can be scaled up: such as open-source online tools.

WITH FUTURE
GENERATIONS TO
PREVENT VIOLENCE.

Given current momentum, where, in many countries, survivors are more visible, now is the time to tackle the origins of abuse for today and future generations. We are expanding the Foundation’s support for prevention initiatives by addressing the root causes of violence.

ACTING WITH OTHERS
FOR GREATER IMPACT.

By mobilizing our extensive network of Kering and brand employees, as well as other companies, the Kering Foundation takes a step further towards workplaces where women who have experienced violence feel safe to disclose their experience to colleagues who know how to support them.

BUILDING EVERY PARTNERSHIP
INTO LASTING CHANGE.

We support evidence-based programs, integrating in-depth monitoring and evaluation
to track progress and demonstrate relevance and efficiency in 6 specific countries.
