The 2017 Shaping Futures team are back from two successful trips shaping young lives in Mumbai and Delhi.
The Shaping Futures volunteers have arrived home from a trip of a lifetime: teaching disadvantaged young people the art of hairdressing in India.
In its seventh year, Shaping Futures has changed the lives of over 1700 people, reaching the poorest young orphans in 25 countries.
Packing up and heading off to India to dedicate their talent and time were Lauren Tudor from En Route Hair and Beauty, Rhys Davidson and Gemma Slade from Rhys Davidson Hair Design, Jane DeFrancesco from Jane Creative Hair and educator Lesley Mather.
This year the initiative expanded its connections in two locations of Delhi and Mumbai, taking Schwarzkopf Professional one step closer to its goals of providing 100 training programmes in 27 countries by 2020.
Ambassador Janet Maitland says, “The team this year worked with a new partnership with Plan International and I have the highest respect for the way that they all pulled together to respond to the huge need of giving people so much less fortunate than ourselves a chance for a new life.”
