For years, there has been significant social progress across the world. Child mortality rates have improved, life expectancy has increased, and the number of people living in extreme poverty has dramatically reduced. Despite global progress "on average" many are feeling left behind. Local communities are facing acute challenges.

PwC’s Community Commitment | Duration 01:27
We’re investing in the future and growth of 15 million people, NGOs and social & micro enterprises to help them maximise their potential by 2022.
At PwC, one way we measure the impact of our community investment activities is by a beneficiaries reached metric, using the London Benchmarking Group's framework. Building individuals skills, supporting social and micro enterprises and building NGO capacity are the pillars of our strategy. We define beneficiaries reached as:
- individuals external to PwC,
- the number of individuals we support through education and skills building programs (students, educators, NGO and social enterprise employees),
- the number of social and micro enterprises we support by providing skilled volunteering, pro-bono services and financial investment,
- the number of NGOs and NPOs we support by capacity building, increasing their scale and effectiveness and by helping to strengthen their accountability, transparency, reliability and profile.
