Lifelong learning is a central tenant of out Citizenship strategy.

At KPMG, we understand and value the benefits of a foundation of education and lifelong learning. It can be the key to unlocking potential and to help people out of a life in poverty. That is why lifelong learning and opportunity is a central tenant of our citizenship strategy. Through our ongoing collaboration with organizations such as Junior Achievers and One Young World we develop the leaders we need for the future. Through programmes such as KPMG’s Families for Literacy, we provide new books to children in need, thereby helping to develop strong reading skills in children from low-income communities, thereby helping them achieve in school.

 

Enactus

Enactus continues to be a strong part of our citizenship programs around the world. We have been an active supporter and participant with Enactus for more than 13 years, helping to mobilize students to make a difference in their communities, while they also develop the skills that will enable them to become the next generation of socially responsible business leaders.

In 2014, the Enactus World Cup competition took place in Beijing. It brought together student teams from 36 countries, joined by academic and business leaders, to showcase how entrepreneurial action can help to achieve social progress within communities, including in some of the world’s least developed countries.

Among the student innovations presented were ways to create sustainable, local power generation, create saleable products from recycled materials and a project for making and selling eyeglasses for a dollar in poor communities. This was also a milestone year for KPMG’s collaboration with Enactus, as we have extended our partnership for another 3 years.
