IKEA Soft Toys for Education Campaign Raises $16.2 Million (€12.4)

IKEA customers and co-workers have partnered with the IKEA Foundation on a $16.2 million (€12.4) million gift for UNICEF and Save the Children projects to help realise every child’s right to a quality education. Thanks to this donation, UNICEF and Save the Children will implement 18 projects in 16 countries.

UNICEF’s share will go to the Schools for Africa projects in seven countries and two projects in Russia and China. Save the Children’s equal share will support education for children in some of the most marginalized groups (minorities and children with disabilities) in Asia (Bangladesh, China, Cambodia, Indonesia, Myanmar, Philippines) and Eastern Europe (Lithuania and Romania).
