YOUNG HOPES

GUBI launches campaign in support of UNICEF’s global efforts to protect, preserve, and improve the lives of children in crisis zones around the globe.

YOUNG HOPES

 

Titled ‘Young Hopes’, the campaign introduces an exclusive UNICEF edition of GUBI’s bestselling Pacha Lounge Chair, upholstered in surplus premium fabrics.

ALL PROFITS TO SUPPORT THE CHILDREN

 

At times of high-profile global catastrophe, many other humanitarian disasters unfolding around the world can become overlooked. While the world focuses on the headlines, communities in marginalized regions often suffer – and their children most of all.

 

The Young Hopes campaign will see 100% of the profits from the sale of a limited edition of 100 Pacha Lounge Chairs go towards supporting children in major but lesser-known crisis zones in countries such as Burkina Faso, Myanmar, and Sudan.

The impact of conflict, climate crisis, and natural disaster has left millions of children in urgent need of humanitarian assistance. The funds raised by GUBI’s Young Hopes campaign will go directly towards UNICEF’s projects helping children in emergencies through areas of focus including: 

BIRTH

 

ENSURING BABIES CAN BE BORN SAFELY AND HEALTHILY. UNICEF’S MIDWIFERY KITS EACH CONTAIN ENOUGH DRUGS, MEDICAL SUPPLIES, AND STERILIZATION AND RESUSCITATION EQUIPMENT TO DELIVER BABIES SAFELY.

 

THE PURCHASE OF 1 PACHA LOUNGE CHAIR CONTRIBUTES TO THE SAFE BIRTHS OF 200 CHILDREN.

WATER

 

ENSURING CHILDREN AND THEIR FAMILIES HAVE ACCESS TO CLEAN WATER AND SANITATION. BY PROVIDING WATER-PURIFICATION TABLETS, UNICEF HELPS PREVENT MALNUTRITION, INFECTION, AND THE SPREAD OF WATER-BORNE DISEASES.

 

THE PURCHASE OF 1 PACHA LOUNGE CHAIR PROVIDES UP TO 35,000 CHILDREN WITH ACCESS TO CLEAN DRINKING WATER FOR A MONTH.

EDUCATION

 

ENSURING UNINTERRUPTED EDUCATION FOR EVERY CHILD. UNICEF’S EMERGENCY EDUCATION PROGRAMS SUPPLY CHILDREN WITH LEARNING MATERIALS AND SAFE LEARNING SPACES EQUIPPED WITH WATER AND SANITATION FACILITIES.

 

THE PURCHASE OF 1 PACHA LOUNGE CHAIR HELPS MAINTAIN ACCESS TO EMERGENCY EDUCATION FOR UP TO 475 CHILDREN.

“I am grateful to GUBI for their unique commitment and generous support. The world’s escalating conflicts and crises have created unprecedented global humanitarian needs. This unfortunately means that some crises are overshadowed by other higher-profile challenges and media headlines. Therefore, I am so thankful that the funds raised through GUBI’s limited Pacha design enable UNICEF to respond more equitably and support children living in ongoing humanitarian crisis, regardless of where they are in the world.”  

– Susanne Dahl, Executive Director, UNICEF Denmark

Cloud-like and comfortable, the Pacha Lounge Chair by the legendary French designer Pierre Paulin is one of the most popular designs in the entire GUBI Collection. For the Young Hopes campaign, GUBI has pledged a total of 100 chairs in three exclusive colorways sourced from surplus fabrics: Lupo Special Diagonal Bouclé 007, Harp 102, and Mumble 02.
