This non-governmental organisation works tirelessly around the globe to make sure children’s voices are heard and to help them achieve immediate and lasting changes.
Volunteers for Education
for a second year, our people have been actively involved – in person and remotely – in Save the Children’s tutoring initiative to help school-age children with their after-school studies. The children involved can rely on volunteers for help with homework and schoolwork in general. The initiative aims to ensure continuity in education for children from disadvantaged families.
Christmas Jumper Day
The strong feeling throughout our offices across EMEA of being a part of Save the Children’s great work shines particularly brightly on Christmas Jumper Day, when everyone enthusiastically dons a festive woolly to raise funds.
We have been heavily involved with the organisation for many years. Here are some examples of the initiatives:
