In 2010, The UPS Foundation renewed its partnership with WAGGGS, committing a further $2m over a three year period. The UPS Foundation is supporting the development of an environmental advocacy programme and leadership training. It also made possible the creation of a Community Relations Intern position at Sangam, the youth delegation at COP 16 in Mexico, the first Young Women’s World Forum in the UK, an advocacy training CD-Rom in Brazil and a Peer Educator training programme in South Africa.
We are working with Symantec, the global leader in providing security solutions to consumers, with its Norton products, and organisations across a range of technologies including PCs and mobile devices, in order to explore ways in which girls and young women can learn about online safety. Symantec is supporting the development and delivery of Surf Smart – an educational resource about staying safe online. Surf Smart includes activities which encourage users to identify issues and find solutions most relevant to their own context, as well as activities that expose the common issues girls and young women face with respect to internet safety.
