The primary focus of KPMG social responsibility is assistance to socially vulnerable children and young people, also the disabled and persons with chronic illnesses, whom we try to involve into diverse activities and education.
To increase our social responsibility, each year we organize KPMG Christmas Charity Bazaar, which aims at helping the disabled people to integrate into social life. In those bazaars, people with physical and mental disabilities present their needlework: wood and ceramic handicraft items as well as painted, knitted and embroidered gifts and souvenirs. The event traditionally ends with an auction and all of the money raised during the auction goes to charity.

In this project, we contributed to the renovation of the playground at the nursery-kindergarten Kurpaitė, to the improvement of the environment of Mother and Child Boarding House in Vilnius, to the preservation of the environment at the Day Activity Centre for the Disabled in Kretinga, and many other works.
To contribute to the preservation of nature, KPMG employees, in cooperation with the directorate of the Pavilniai and Verkiai regional park launched a continuous environmental project Strielčiukai Hiking Track. In this project, we trim tree branches, collect waste, build nesting-boxes for birds and bats.
