Consulting firm Eden McCallum has added Save the Children to its ‘NGO Partnership’, its firm-wide pro bono programme. With the latest addition, Eden McCallum now has partnerships with three leading NGOs.
In line with the firm’s corporate social responsibility (CSR) objectives, in 2007 Eden McCallum launched an internal programme aimed at providing pro bono business support to charities. To date the support centred around two key organisations – Impetus-PEF and Virgin Unite – for which more than 70 projects have been completed across 30 charity institutions. As part of the partnership, Eden McCallum consulting teams deliver strategy, organisation, and operational improvement projects for the NGOs and for the charities they support.
Based on the success of the programme, known internally as ‘NGO Partnership’, Eden McCallum’s management team have now decided to extend its scope, adding Save the Children to the portfolio. Save the Children works in 120 countries to save children’s lives, fight for their rights, and help them fulfil their potential. The mutual commitment has not been decided overnight – over the past year the partners have already worked together successfully on a series of projects focused on strategy and organisation. In addition, the consulting firm has built a track record working with charities focused on children and young adults, including supporting education initiatives in sub-Saharan Africa, as well as work with a range of charities dedicated to supporting disadvantaged children in the UK.
“We are excited to confirm this partnership with Save the Children, an outstanding international charity which we are proud to support. More and more of our consultants are keen to give back, and we are thrilled with the contribution they make to our NGO partners and their individual charities,” says Hilary Corroon, Director of Eden McCallum's NGO Partnership.
