Launched in November 2013 under the original name Project Sunlight, Unilever brightFuture has already made a positive contribution to the lives of millions around the world. Having experienced an overwhelming amount of support, with people and communities embracing the bright future spirit, the Project Sunlight platform was renamed Unilever brightFuture in April 2015. We have had many proud moments along the way:
We’ve helped 2 million children across the world, through Unilever's ongoing partnership with Save the Children, UNICEF and the World Food Programme.
We provided half a million meals in the UK in partnership with Oxfam through the campaign #ClearAPlate.
In the US, we’ve been working with Free The Children for We Day, celebrating the accomplishments of thousands of inspiring young people.
We reached 20 thousand children in over 100 schools in Indonesia with hygiene education programs and sanitation facilities.
In India, together with our NGO partners, we are helping over 115 million people through health and sanitation programs.
In Brazil, we are committed to help more than 1 billion people to improve their health and hygiene conditions.
Enhancing Livelihoods: Through our Sustainable Living Plan, Unilever has committed to be a more inclusive business and help promote a new era of youth employability.
