As part of their Campaign for Real Beauty, the Dove Self Esteem Fund was launched in 2004 to demonstrate their commitment to the brand's mission 'to make more women feel beautiful everyday, by widening today's view of beauty and by inspiring women to take great care of themselves . ' The DSEF aims to educate and inspire young girls through a series of tools and workshops which ultimately protects and nurtures their body - related self - esteem and enables them to become fully realized adults .
