From the beginning, Oriflame has strived to support NGOs and charity organisations around the world. These include the World Childhood Foundation, founded by HM Queen Silvia of Sweden and co-founded by Oriflame and the Af Jochnick Foundation a relationship which continues to this day with contributions from the Company and the Oriflame Foundation.
To identify the right projects to support, the Oriflame Foundation has recognised SOS Children’s Villages as its preferred global NGO partner.
SOS Children’s Villages is an international social development organisation focusing on family-based, long-term care of children who can no longer grow up with their biological families. One such example is the co-operation with SOS Children’s Villages in Latin America, which includes all Oriflame’s Latin American markets and has led to successful fundraising and a high level of involvement from both Oriflame Consultants and employees.
The partnership includes both a long-term contribution to the SOS Children’s Villages’ work and special initiatives for the children. In Poland, the Oriflame Foundation and Oriflame Poland arranged a tennis cup for children as a special project together with SOS Children’s Villages. Tennis lessons were given by talented tennis players and professional tennis coaches, and the cup winner was awarded a racquet from tennis star and Oriflame Foundation ambassador Caroline Wozniacki.
Where it is not possible to form a local partnership with SOS, the markets work with carefully selected NGO partners who meet the criteria laid out in the Oriflame Foundation Charter.
