Ms Nada Dugas, Director, Always Communications at P&G said that the collaboration with UNESCO was along the brands mission to empower girls through education.
According to her:

At Always, we believe that education is key and that girls should not miss out school because of menstruation or for any other reason. Always is there for the Nigerian girls for almost 25 years, providing great feminine protection products that help them stay in school during their period and bringing puberty education lessons in schools, to 1 million girls aged 11-13 every year, for the past 5 years. Additional, we have partnered with UNESCO on this initiative to help 110,000 Nigerian girls and women acquire basic literacy, numeracy, life and vocational skills.
