“The Sustainable Development Goals are the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. They address the global challenges we face, including those related to poverty, inequality, climate, environmental degradation, prosperity, and peace and justice. The Goals interconnect and in order to leave no one behind, it is important that we achieve each Goal and target by 2030.”
The above Sustainable Development Goal forms our mantra in deciding how best to contribute to societal needs. We are committed to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and for which we have formed the following key pillars:
- Pro bono Representation: The firm selects and conducts cases on a pro bono basis on yearly basis or as the case may be. Under this, we have handled matters in the Constitutional and Human Rights Court, Employment and Labour Relations Court, Children’s cases and Environment and Land Court. We have also been involved in the formation of community-based dispute resolution policy documents to aid in the traditional dispute resolution mechanism in compliance with the law and best practices.
- Tree Planting Program: The firm is also involved in the planting of trees across the country and has set a target to plant at least one hundred thousand trees yearly. The program is twofold, i.e., to encourage the policy on cut one-plant two and penetration of the regions with low vegetation coverage. The firm works closely with natives, schools and environmental movements.
- Relief and Aid for the Vulnerable: The firm is involved in periodic support of the less fortunate in the society. For instance, the firm has a feeding program aimed at orphans and elderly in the society. The firm supports in the distribution of sanitary pads, stationery and food products to the less fortunate in the society. We do so in the strong belief that education is the key to an informed society, and the same is only achieved through an inspired society that is well fed and catered for.
