The Blue Hand® Project
Positive results from The Green Hand® Project (2013 – 2019), response from customers, and a desire to support critical needs in countries where we do business led us to expand the program to India. The Blue Hand® Project (BHP) will donate $1 for every metric tonne of Golden Isles® fluff and specialty pulp purchased by customers in India with a maximum contribution of $500,000 to WASH programs in schools and pre-schools/early child development centers. With GP’s commitment of $500,000 (USD) over two years UNICEF could implement WASH interventions in up to two districts in one of India’s high burden states, which could help up to 10 million people, depending on the population of the targeted districts.
UNICEF in partnership with the Indian government is working to raise the water, sanitation, and hygiene standards in 13 states, currently impacting ~150,000 children. Through the support of GP Cellulose’s Blue Hand® Project, UNICEF will work to:
- Develop quality policy briefs on proper WASH practices.
- Deliver trainings to school officials, administrators, health professionals, and community workers on healthy WASH behaviors.
- Increase awareness and visibility on the overall WASH methodology through focused campaign moments like World Water Day, Global Handwashing Day, and others.
