Last week, more than 45 P&G Peru employees and business partners gave #UnMejorDía (a better day) to more than 800 children in need at Peru-España School, located in Villa El Salvador, Lima.

Organized through United Way Peru, the volunteer event aimed at teaching students health and personal hygiene habits through our Oral-B and Safeguard brands.

Volunteers also gave the school a facelift, painting educational murals and playground toys, and planting trees, along with other activities.

Among the P&G volunteers were Peruvian P&G ambassador Gian Piero Díaz (pictured below, right) and Susan Cristán, also known as “La Puca” and co-host of the family television show “Fábrica de Sueños” (pictured below, left).

In his remarks at the end of the day, P&G Peru General Manager Roman Zaobornyj said, “The purpose of P&G is to touch and improve everyday life, now and for generations to come. We bring it to life through everything we do, like providing a better day to children. We had the opportunity to teach them the importance of brushing their teeth and washing their hands correctly through our Oral-B and Safeguard brands. We also improved some of the school infrastructure so the children could enjoy the time they spend there … and have a better day, every day."

As P&Gers, we believe it's a privilege and a responsibility to make things better in the communities where we live and work, all over the world. P&G Peru is just one example of how our people are investing in education and meaningful improvements that improve lives, now and for generations to come.
