Robert Walters Group has been announced as a finalist in the ‘Best charity, NGO or NFP programme’ and ‘Most effective long-term commitment’ categories at the Corporate Engagement Awards 2023 for its Global Angels Foundation partnership programme.
The Corporate Engagement Awards honour CSR programmes, corporate sponsorships and the communication strategies around those collaborations. It has grown to be the benchmark for collaborations that have excelled and pushed the boundaries. The awards recognise companies that successfully engage their partners, support charities and work for communities in which they operate.
Since 2017, the Robert Walters Group has partnered with the Global Angels Foundation to support the Itinyi Valley community in Tsavo, Kenya. The Global Angels’ mission is to empower disadvantaged communities around the world to create long-term transformation, and together, through our partnership with Global Angels we work with the community of Tsavo to build a sustainable future in the face of climate change.
Our partnership with the Global Angels Foundation funds key projects to provide life-giving water for drinking and agriculture, develop drought-proof farming techniques to ensure food security, and improve access to education for children and for the community to help them build successful small businesses.
We are proud that our programme is built upon the core principle of working in partnership with the community, empowering them though education, training, funds and year-round support on the ground to overcome extreme poverty, poor nutrition and lack of access to clean drinking water.
In addition to our corporate donations, our people also fundraise for the initiative and each year eight employee volunteers visit Kenya to work on the project farm and other key infrastructure projects.
Nominated alongside organisations such as Macmillan, Make-A-Wish and Natwest, we’re proud to be recognised as finalists in the ‘Most effective long-term commitment’ and ‘Best charity, NGO or NFP programme’ categories.
At the Corporate Engagement Awards 2022, the Robert Walters Group was awarded the ‘Gold’ title for the ‘Best arts and culture programme’ and ‘Silver’ title for the ‘Best collaboration for a single event’ categories for its UK New Artist of the Year Award programme.
