Pro Bono & Social Impact


Inspiring young lives

We want to inspire and empower the next generation of professionals, particularly those from low socio-economic backgrounds. We work with educational organisations, community groups and charities around the world to help young people improve their life chances and build skills: from literacy and mentoring schemes for school pupils to providing careers information and advice.

Thanks to the support from Clyde & Co, we have been able to upskill our Women’s Group with training in Village Savings and Loans (VSL), empowering them to be able to start up their own businesses in the future. The support from Clyde & Co hasn’t only been for our beneficiaries, but as a whole staff team we have had the opportunity to take part in training sessions delivered remotely by Clyde & Co volunteers from the Johannesburg office, enabling us to operate better. Our partnership with Clyde & Co continues to be invaluable, and we are incredibly excited to be able to show the volunteer teams our sites in Malawi, so they can see first-hand where all their efforts are going toward, and the incredible impact they are making. Here is to creating more brighter futures, together.

For example:

• In South Africa, we sponsored non-legal learnerships for 36 young people who do not have the financial means to further their education • In Hong Kong we ran a year-long pen pal scheme for primary age children from low socio-economic backgrounds with We R Family Foundation • In the MEA region we provided soft-skills training to staff of The Sparkle Foundation, a charity which aims to improve the lives of vulnerable children and families in Africa
