Namaste and thank you

Three years ago, we set out to empower women and girls in every corner of the world and be part of a collective effort to work towards achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals. As our three-year partnership with Barefoot College comes to a close, we can celebrate the impact of what we've achieved together.

Watch our final partnership film:

At the start of the partnership we set stretching targets and with thanks to the hard work and commitment of our people and our clients we surpassed each and every goal, highlights of which are:

  • 474 Solar Mamas from 35 countries were trained, bringing clean light to more than 230,000 people in the developing world.
  • Pro bono legal work enabled new training centers to be opened in Burkina Faso, Madagascar, Senegal and Fiji.
  • Volunteers trained 2250+ children on the Sustainable Development Goals in 16 countries.
  • $500,000 raised by our colleagues and clients.
  • Our partnership documentary Flip the Switch was officially selected for 21 film festivals worldwide.

Barefoot College will continue to be a pro bono client of the firm and we will continue to work with them and others to make positive change in how to practically improve lives at the grassroots level, especially those of women and girls.

Thank you again to all who made this partnership such a success.
