The Dove Self-Esteem Project

We’re helping young people all around the world to build positive body confidence and self-esteem.

Did you know that eight out of ten girls opt out of important activities due to appearance anxiety? From missing doctors appointments, to cancelling plans with friends, anxiety about their looks can keep young people from living life to the full. 

We’re on a mission to ensure that the next generation grows up enjoying a positive relationship with the way they look – helping young people to raise their self-esteem and realise their full potential.

So far, the Dove Self-Esteem Project has already educated over 60 million young people in body confidence and self-esteem. We are working with world-renowned body image experts and leading universities to develop evidence based and academically validated educational tools. Discover our resources and help us reach 32,000 young people in New Zealand by the end of 2020, and ¼ billion young people globally by 2030.
