Making an impact that matters – one future at a time
At Deloitte, we believe that we make the greatest societal impact when we use our biggest asset: our people. Their skills and expertise have the power to help others fulfil their aspirations and potential by enabling them to develop job skills, improve educational outcomes and create opportunities for those who otherwise may be left behind. WorldClass is Deloitte’s global initiative to empower 100 million people by 2030.
Making an impact for school children in and outside Denmark
As the Fourth Industrial Revolution unfolds, millions of children have been left behind globally. The spread of COVID-19 has also posed unprecedented challenges for children – half of the world’s student population has been impacted by school closures. Children are our future, so we need to take action now and empower the vulnerable.
For several years, Deloitte Denmark has had a close partnership with Human Practice Foundation – a Danish NGO that builds schools, quality education and entrepreneurial projects that give children and their communities the power to create a better future. They bring about positive change for children through building and restructuring schools in developing countries and helping vulnerable school children in Denmark.
We have worked with them on a broad variety of tasks since the initial establishment of the foundation – from assisting as their auditor to organising their fundraisings. All our work is pro bono, and in the near future, we will expand our collaboration with Human Practice Foundation when we join forces on a new project at Danish schools.
“We partner with Human Practice Foundation because their mission aligns with our purpose. From the moment we were introduced to the project, we believed in it because it was clear to us that it is driven by true commitment and a real desire to make a difference.” – Henrik Wellejus, Managing Partner in Audit & Assurance, Deloitte.
