In 2021, we increased our beneficiaries base by 300% reaching 1,060,000 beneficiaries, made up of community members, students, youth, and children, extending across 56 countries resulting in active sustainability projects and partnerships covering 86% of our global base. This increase came from our response to the global event that took place during the year which added an extra 700,000 beneficiaries.
