México City, Aug. 21, 2017 – For the 12th consecutive year, SC Johnson announces its annual donation to the Dibujando un Mañana Foundation. This year’s donation of more than 12 million pesos will be used to fund vital programs to help Mexican girls rise above poverty, homelessness and neglect.
SC Johnson’s joint program with Dibujando un Mañana is called "Tú Puedes Ayudar” (You Can Help). The program assists organizations that help girls and young women who suffer as the result of neglect and poverty. The program's goal is to transform the lives of girls and young women through education, training and counseling. Past successful projects include building a computer lab at a school, remodeling a support home and providing counselors at group homes.
“SC Johnson is proud to continue our partnership with Dibujando un Mañana. Our goal is to help improve the lives of girls who are the future cornerstones of families in our communities,” said Luis Manuel Hernandez Rojas, General Manager for SC Johnson Mexico and Central America. “We hope our contribution and collaboration continues to benefit those impacted by poverty and neglect and leads to healthy and happy lives.”
Since SC Johnson’s involvement in the program began 12 years ago, almost 34,000 children in 18 states of the Mexico Republic have benefitted from 94 million pesos in total donations. The partnership has also been able to provide adequate channeling of donations, and supports projects to assist institutions that in turn transform the lives of girls.
SC Johnson Mexico has been part of the 131-year old family company for 64 years. SC Johnson Latin America also has operations in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Paraguay, Peru, Uruguay and Venezuela.
