UNICEF works closely with multi-national corporations to identify, design and implement global alliances that leverage the strengths and influential power of the corporate sector on behalf of the world’s children. Thanks to our global partners, UNICEF continues to make sound long-term investments in the next generation through enhanced support towards child programmes, covering health, nutrition, social protection, wash, sanitation and hygiene, education, and etc.


Starwood Hotels and Resorts

Starwood Hotels and Resorts across Asia Pacific (now Marriott International) support UNICEF’s Check Out for Children™ programme. Guests are invited to add US $1 to their bill upon checking out as a donation to UNICEF.

Since 1995, Starwood Legacy Hotels & Resorts have raised over US$35 million to help UNICEF improve the lives of more than 4.5 million children in over 40 countries across Europe, Africa and the Middle East. The funds are dedicated towards areas on child survival, child protection, education and emergency relief.


IKEA Foundation

IKEA Foundation is one of UNICEF’s longest standing corporate partners. Since 2001, IKEA Foundation has committed more than US$200 million to UNICEF’s child programmes and emergency relief work.

Between 2003 and 2016, IKEA Foundation has joined together with IKEA stores around the world to educate consumers about child issues and make a donation of 1 Euro for each soft toy sold in November and December each year. This programme has generated more than US$35 million in support of 100 projects in 46 countries, providing more than 12 million children living in poverty in Asia, Africa and Central Europe with better education.


H&M and the H&M Foundation

H&M has partnered with UNICEF on programmes advocating children’s rights since 2004.

Since 2014, UNICEF has also partnered with the H&M Foundation to contribute to positive long-term change for children and communities, in countries where H&M operates its businesses. Proper care at the youngest age forms the strongest foundation for a person’s future. Therefore, our partnership focuses on early childhood development, enabling children between 0 to 6 years old to access education.

In total, H&M Foundation has committed to supporting UNICEF’s early childhood development programmes with about US$13.5 million. H&M’s generous support enables UNICEF to provide the most vulnerable and excluded children with a good start in life.



Montblanc and UNICEF share the vision of empowering every child through education. The partnership since 2004 has to-date raised over US$10 million for UNICEF’s education work for every child. In 2017, with the launch of a special ‘Montblanc for UNICEF’ collection, the partnership aims to improve the quality of learning resources and environment for over 5 million children in China, Djibouti and Brazil.

In 2017, Montblanc organized a series of art and craft workshops under the theme ‘The Gift of Writing’ for children in Hong Kong. The interactive workshops created an engaging moment for children to pass on the gift of writing and learning, as well as to understand the importance of education and giving back to the community.


FC Barcelona

Since 2006, Futbol Club Barcelona (FCB) has featured the UNICEF logo on its team jersey. Over the past 10 years, the partnership helped UNICEF improve the lives of over 1 million children in seven countries.

In 2016, FC Barcelona and UNICEF renewed their commitment and signed a new 4-year agreement. The football club will increase its annual contribution to UNICEF from US$1.7 million to US$2.3 million, supporting programmes that give marginalized children in Brazil, China, Ghana and South Africa the opportunity to take part in physical education, sport and play.


P&G Pampers

Since 2006, through its ‘1 Pack = 1 Vaccine’ campaign, Pampers has supported UNICEF’s Maternal and Neonatal Tetanus Elimination Program, a global campaign to protect the lives of mothers and babies in developing countries.

As of 2014, Pampers has donated 300 million tetanus vaccines, protecting 100 million women and their babies worldwide.


LEGO Group and LEGO Foundation

In 2015, the LEGO Group, the LEGO Foundation and UNICEF announced their shared commitment to improve children’s lives with the launch of a global partnership. It aimed at promoting quality early learning through play and leaving a positive impact on children via the Children’s Rights and Business Principles.

In this 3-year partnership, the LEGO Group has pledged to strengthen the governance of child protection in its own business – in both their offline and online operations – and to share the best practices with others in the corporate world.


Louis Vuitton

In January 2016, UNICEF and Louis Vuitton signed a global partnership to support and raise funds for the most vulnerable children around the world. In the same year, Louis Vuitton has specially designed the Silver Lockit series to support children at risk. For each Silver Lockit pendant or bracelet sold, US$200 would be donated to UNICEF.

Besides, Louis Vuitton has encouraged its clients to make direct donations to UNICEF, especially during emergencies. Therefore, the public may purchase the Silver Lockit series or make donations to UNICEF at their own wish to support children in crisis.
