Corporate Social Responsibility is high on our agenda. We choose charities to work with where we give something back; maybe our time, some team fundraising, maybe some technology services, or simply by donating. We take our attitude to CSR seriously and also do our bit to improve our impact on the environment whenever we can.
Kokrobite is a fishing community near Accra in Ghana. There is a lack of education there with the greater part of the community depending on fishing for their livelihood. Many of the children in Kokrobite find it difficult to attend school due to the cost of school fees, uniforms, shoes, books and other costs. The Kokrobite Chiltern Centre works with children and parents from Kokrobite and the surrounding villages. Their aim is to support the children so that they are able to attend school and gain an education. Pensar sponsors three children every year and Pensar staff volunteer their time both in the UK and by visits to Ghana.
