Our local projects

Our Local Projects

To achieve positive and direct impact in people’s everyday lives the Foundation supports local projects in countries where H&M operates. Together with organisations with specific local knowledge we work to address the issues of Education, Clean Water or Equality. These projects can address the issues from a different angle and the approach may differ from country to country in order to meet local contexts.
