“ Because when you look back in History, you know there has been obviously so many incredible women who have come before us, who have paved the way to not have to be labelled, or put in a box, or pigeonholed, to be able to be multifaceted, multilayered, to be unapologetic. “

For several years, Christian Dior Parfums has supported CTAOP (Charlize Theron Africa Outreach Project) to support a network of health and educational organizations working to help young people in sub-Saharan African stay healthy and reach their potential. Today, this charity commitment naturally meets with #DiorStandsWithWomen in order to promote education and empowerment of young people thanks to the CTAOP Youth Leaders Scholarship.
The programme grants individual scholarships to cover four years of tuition fees, board and lodging, books and travel costs, a laptop, and individual mentorship and leadership support. Today, Christian Dior Parfums has made a commitment to cover the scholarships for the upcoming 2021 CTAOP Youth Leaders Scholarship Program, for a period of 4 years.
