Make a local and global impact to support sustainable change.
In 2010, KPMG launched a multi-year collaboration with WE. Through this strategic relationship, all of our people have the opportunity to make an impact locally and globally to support sustainable change.
Sacred Circle offers a dynamic youth leadership program for Aboriginal youth – the fastest growing demographic in Canada. The program aims to help Aboriginal youth develop their leadership skills and give them confidence to successfully take on new opportunities, overcome challenges and make a difference in their communities. Me to WE works with each Aboriginal community to customize the program to its needs and vision.
Building on the success of the KPMG-supported alternative income and livelihood projects in India during the first four years of the partnership, we are pleased to continue our joint efforts through the implementation of economic empowerment programming in Kenya, India, and Ecuador. Together we are advancing the Opportunity pillar of the WE Villages model in these three countries.
All KPMG people and their families have the opportunity to travel to Kenya or Ecuador to learn first-hand about life in rural communities and how WE is working to empower local people to lift themselves out of poverty through their WE Villages model.
KPMG is a proud national sponsor of WE Day, a movement that brings together a generation of youth to be engaged in changing the world through an inspirational event and year-long educational initiative. KPMG helped to expand WE Day across Canada by raising support in the corporate community. Hundreds of KPMG people and clients have attended as honoured guests and volunteers.
KPMG people and their families have provided tremendous support for the WE Movement across the country through events and campaigns such as Family Engagement Workshops, WE Scare Hunger, Redefine Possible, Take Action Academy, and WE Create Change.
