Western Union advances Education for Better Program in Africa, world

The Western Union Company and the Western Union Foundation will move into the next phase of its Education for Better program, investing $1 million to train women over the next five years in the Americas, European Union, Africa and Asia.

“We are proud to continue the Education for Better campaign, leveraging the strength of the Western Union Company’s global network, the Western Union Foundation and its NGO partners to provide meaningful educational opportunities and positive social impact throughout many of the communities Western Union serves,” John Dye, board chairman, Western Union Foundation, said.

The program leverages the company’s services, advocacy, cause marketing, philanthropic investments and employee engagement to advance education across the globe.

In Africa, the program will work with SOS Children’s Villages, funding and supporting vocational and life skills training for thousands of youth (particularly young women) in the DRC, Ethiopia, Kenya, Mali, Morocco, Nigeria, Senegal and South Africa.
