Air France-KLM has announced a partnership with The Art of Music Foundation to distribute sanitary pads to participants in the Junior Mentorship program.
The Art of Music Junior Mentorship program, a subsidiary of The Art of Music Foundation, is designed to provide young adults in primary and secondary school with opportunities for physical, emotional, and spiritual growth.
Over the past five years, the program has impacted 120 youth aged 12 to 22 years, from two of Kenya’s largest slums, Korogocho and Mukuru. These members, during school holidays, engage in a transformative journey that empowers them, offering encouragement for personal growth and aiding in the setting and achievement of professional goals.
Air France-KLM’s donation underscores the airline’s dedication to making a positive impact on the communities it serves. Recognizing the importance of addressing the specific needs of young girls, Air France-KLM’s contribution ensures that participants in the Junior Mentorship program have access to essential hygiene products, supporting their overall well-being.
“As Air France-KLM, we are keen on nurturing the dreams and aspirations of a generation. This initiative symbolizes our commitment to community transformation and empowerment, affirming that when we invest in the well-being and development of our youth, we cultivate a future of boundless possibilities,” said Air France-KLM Country Sales Manager for Kenya and offline markets, Hildabeta Amiani.
The Art of Music Foundation representative Peris Thiiru said: “The Junior Mentorship program is not just about education; it’s about holistic development and empowerment. We are excited to have Air France-KLM join hands with us in this endeavor. This contribution goes beyond meeting a basic need; it sends a powerful message of care and support.”
Air France-KLM’s involvement in this initiative aligns with its broader corporate social responsibility goals, emphasizing its role as a socially responsible corporate citizen. By investing in the well-being and development of young girls, Air France-KLM is contributing to the creation of a more empowered and resilient community.
