This initiative is in the spirit of the Sustainable Development Goals Agenda. Especially in times of uncertainty, we need to come together, in order to leave no-one-behind. As the SDGs are everyone’s business, fighting COVID-19 will certainly be as well.

Siddharth Chatterjee, United Nations Resident Coordinator to Kenya

We need urgent local action to fight this global pandemic. Businesses must stand up immediately and commit to responsible marketing practices and support efforts to accelerate national handwashing campaigns and other preventative solutions

Myriam Sidibe, Senior Fellow from the Mossavar-Rahmani Center for Business and Government, Harvard Kennedy School

The COVID19 response needs a whole society approach with full ownership from Individuals, families, communities, businesses, and Government in order to reduce and control its spread. It is not a Government only effort.

Dr. Githinji Gitahi, AMREF Group CEO

The anticipated impacts of the work will be to accelerate a WHO-validated, national handwashing campaign and other COVID-19 preventative solutions, starting in Kenya.

Pheodor Mundia, The Marketing Society Chairman
