Live, Learn and Thrive Overview
Since its inception, P&G has improved life for more than 400 million children around the world through our Live, Learn and Thrive cause. Every second of every day, two children benefit from P&G Live, Learn and Thrive initiatives.
By focusing our social investments on improving life for disadvantaged children and youth, P&G and our brands are able to focus our attention on an area that is critically important, now and for generations to come.
There is tremendous need in this area, as millions of children around the world live in heartbreaking conditions. By focusing our expertise, technologies, and resources to address these issues, we can help children get off to a healthy start, receive access to education, and build skills for life.
There are more than 100 Live, Learn and Thrive programs taking place in over 120 countries every day. From providing life-saving vaccinations and safe water in Africa, to safe homes across Europe, to educational opportunities in Asia, to essential nutrition in North America, to early childhood development in Latin America…P&G aims to improve life for children and youth around the world.
We believe companies can be a force for good in the world, and this is who we are as a global corporate citizen. Live, Learn and Thrive is woven into our philanthropy, cause marketing, product donations, disaster relief, and employee engagement. The cause is a reflection of our Purpose, and it embodies our goal of being closer to consumers from all walks of life and in touch with the needs of communities around the world.
This commitment goes well beyond the P&G facilities. Every year, thousands of P&G employees worldwide personally commit to helping children and youth live, learn and thrive in their communities and beyond. Many employees volunteer their time or work in groups on team-building projects such as building playgrounds for children, teaching the importance of safe hygiene, or mentoring tweens and teens. And millions of dollars have been donated by employees with the goal of improving life for children and youth.
