STOP VIOLENCE. IMPROVE WOMEN’S LIVES.

Created in 2008, the Kering Foundation combats violence against women. In order to maximize impact, we work hand in hand with a limited number of local partners in the Group's six main countries of operation: China, France, Italy, Mexico, the United Kingdom and the United States.

“Without the efforts and the mobilization of everyone, this violence will never stop.”
