On September 20, 2016 As a founding partner of the White House Call-to-Action for private sector engagement on the global refugee crisis, the Western Union Company (WU), a leader in global payment services, announced expanded participation.
The Western Union Foundation has pledged a three-year grant support totaling USD$ 750,000 to the Whitaker Peace & Development Initiative (WPDI) that will help provide access to education for 10,000 refugees in Uganda.
“The need for assistance is great, and a crisis of this scale requires action on many fronts,” said Ersek. “Supporting the people in the communities that we serve through education and economic opportunity is in the DNA of Western Union and can provide new ways toward a better future.”
Western Union’s White House Call-to-Action program includes looking at ways to expand access to education for refugee children and young adults, leveraging Western Union’s products and services to implement refugee crisis response initiatives, and proactively striving to make job opportunities available to refugees via traditional employment and shorter-term assignments, such as internships and freelance opportunities, with Western Union and teaming up with key corporate partners. The Western Union Foundation’s three-year commitment to WPDI, the non-governmental organization created by Forest Whitaker, represents the first step in this multi-year effort.
