As the global partner of the UEFA Europa League, Western Union committed to turning every successful pass through its sponsorship of the competition, into funds to enable access for children to one million days of education. To achieve this goal, Western Union has committed to a $1.8 million, three-year grant through the Western Union Foundation to support UNICEF education programs in 10 countries. Now in its third year, PASS Initiative grant funding has already supported UNICEF education programs in Jamaica, Nigeria, Turkey, Brazil, Senegal, Morocco and China, with support for programs in Colombia, Mexico and Romania scheduled to begin later this year.
· Teach For All Global Partnership (): Initially started in 2013, the Western Union Foundation has committed more than US$750,000 to support Teach For All and their mission to expand educational opportunity across the globe. In addition, the Foundation has also committed an additional US$200,000 to support Teach For All Network partners in Mexico, India, the United Kingdom, Austria, Argentina, and Australia. The 36 partner organizations in Teach For All’s global network are currently fielding more than 16,000 teachers and reaching over one million students.
Disaster Relief & Emergency Situations
When a natural disaster strikes and emergencies happen, the Western Union Foundation works with numerous relief organizations to help individuals and families rebuild their lives. To date, the Foundation has supported more than 140 disaster relief operations in 65 countries worldwide, including:
· Nepal Earthquake Relief (): The Western Union Foundation is committing US$200,000 to support the relief efforts through discretionary and matching grants in partnership with Western Union employees, Agents, and business customers.
· Ebola Virus Outbreak Challenge (): In December 2014, the Western Union Foundation issued a challenge to the business community and general public to support the relief efforts in West Africa by providing more than US$500,000 in matching funds to Save the Children and International Medical Corps.
· Hurricane Sandy (): In 2012, the Western Union Foundation again partnered with Western Union Agents and employees in the U.S. to provide more than US$660,000 toward the American Red Cross and the IFRC’s relief efforts in the United States northeast and parts of the Caribbean.
