Corporate Responsibility

At PwC, we have a significant role to play in building trust in society and solving important problems. Our goal is to embed this in all we do, but nowhere is it more important and significant than in our global corporate responsibility (CR) strategy.   All PwC firms are involved in their local communities through a vast range of projects, from supporting youth education and leadership programmes to helping social entrepreneurs and local charities. This is a core part of our PwC culture, and we regularly contribute our time, skills and resources. 

While our goal is to make a difference in the communities where we work by sharing our time and knowledge, PwC people also benefit from new skills, enhanced personal fulfilment and deeper local relationships.  Our approach to volunteering and community engagement tends to be local and considers local priorities and customs so that the activities have a positive impact on beneficiaries.

Being part of the solution…

In Uganda, PwC has supported different local initiatives in line with PwC corporate responsibility core areas of education, health, disaster recovery.  Our approach for selecting which initiative to support follows a clear background study and needs assessment.  The firm’s CR strategy is to get staff involved through encouraging contributions both financially and materially – this is collective responsibility. 

Our current intervention

  • Anna Katuregye; this lady helps children with unique health complications using the very meagre personal income and handouts from her community.  She currently has 15 children under her care.  With the money raised, we agreed to focus our support towards improving the general living and hygiene conditions of the children. We bought beds, mattresses, beddings, kitchen ware, and a water tank among others.  Children’s dormitories were rehabilitated and given a fresh hand of paint.  The improved living conditions create a better environment for the children’s recovery after surgery.
