MECCA M-POWER re-launches as it enters the next chapter

In October 2022, MECCA M-POWER began its next chapter, building on its work as a social change initiative that calls upon MECCA’s 25-year history of helping people to look, feel, and be their best. M-POWER’s central purpose is to help women and girls to realise their full potential in a world in which a person’s gender doesn’t limit their rights, freedoms, or opportunities in life. 

In 2017 when M-POWER was launched, we focused on secondary education as a critical lever to empower girls. And so far, we have been successful in assisting 10,000 young women in Australia and Sub-Saharan Africa to complete secondary school. 

In 2022, the program was relaunched to be bolder and bigger in line with MECCA's vision to be the world's most-loved beauty destination. Today, we are proud to support a collective of 20 organisations working to advance gender equality through education for girls; women’s economic opportunity and entrepreneurship; women's health, safety, and wellbeing; and through advocacy and policymaking. We also support positive masculinity programs for young men because we know that gender equality is the rising tide that lifts all boats.  

We were thrilled to celebrate the next chapter of M-POWER at MECCA’s support centre, with our partner organisations and team members.
