Social Actions

UNIWAX is a corporate citizen that puts the well-being of women and men at the center of all its activities. To this end, several actions have already been achieved in order to participate in improving the living conditions of both its employees and the people outside the company.

Among them, there are :

Charity Promotion :

This operation took place from 8 April to 8 May, 2010. The objective was to help pregnant women of modest means by offering them 1,000 delivery kits, using a portion of the turnover generated during the promotion period. These donations were made to the health centers of the 10 communes of Abidjan.

Agreement with the National Preparatory Commission of the Fiftieth Anniversary of the Independence of Côte d'Ivoire (CNPCICI) :

UNIWAX joined the CNPCICI to celebrate the Jubilee of the independence of Côte d'Ivoire. In agreement with the Commission, UNIWAX produced Wax and Fancy uniforms highlighting the colors of the Ivorian flag.

"Pour la Paix" ("For Peace") Collection :

In order to contribute to the irreversible return of peace, UNIWAX, a corporate citizen and jewel of the Ivorian industry for over 40 years now, confirmed its social responsibility by emphasizing the values of peace and unity that have made the Ivorian nation.

UNIWAX decided to commit to peace in Côte d'Ivoire by launching the “Pour la Paix” ("For Peace") collection.

In order to further demonstrate its sharing values, the company resolved, in partnership with the Ministry of Family, Women and Children, to donate a portion of the profits gained from the sales of this collection to a fund helping women and children victims of abuse.

Once again, UNIWAX has proved its willingness to commit to the reconstruction of a united, disciplined and working Côte d'Ivoire.

Handing out Delivery kits during the 2012 Women's Day :

On the occasion of the Women's Day, UNIWAX restated its commitment to women through a series of donations to several health centers of Abidjan to magnify the Woman. Thus, pregnant women and full-term pregnant ones who regularly visit their health centers were offered assistance kits for their deliveries. In 2012, the following health centers were visited by UNIWAX :

  • The Community Health Center (Centre de Sante Communautaire) of the district of Treichville,
  • The Maternal and Child Protection Centers of the district of Koumassi
  • The Community-based Urban Health Center (Formation Sanitaire Urbaine) of Yopougon.

Donations to the orphanages of the towns of Grand Bassam and Bingerville :

As a citizen corporate aware of its social responsibility, for Christmas, UNIWAX decided to provide garnments to orphans of Grand Bassam and Bingerville. These garments, made of UNIWAX cloth had been made by the prisoners of MACA (House of Arrest and Correction of Abidjan), registered with the rehabilitation section of that prison.
