Our Key Partnerships
Youth Insearch helps young people aged 14 to 20, who have had challenging experiences, whether it be grief, addiction, sexual assault or domestic violence. Youth Insearch focuses on building self-esteem and eradicating self-doubt through weekend workshops and weekly support groups. During these sessions, the young people share their experiences with peers and support adults, participate in trust-building exercises and undergo counselling and mentorship.
Hamilton Locke team members have provided leadership and communication training sessions to young adults as well as career advice through mentoring.
The Hunger Project
The ultimate goal of The Hunger Project is to end world hunger by 2030. The Hunger Project shifts mindsets of individuals, so that they are empowered to build and run sustainable projects within their community, whether it may be a school or a business, for example.
The Hunger Project provides resources, such as education, microfinancing and health facilities to enable men, women and children and their projects to flourish, ultimately allowing them to break the cycle of poverty themselves.
The Hunger Project operates in 14 developing countries, including Ethiopia, Ghana, India and Peru. Our contribution focuses on supporting the organisation, whether that be reviewing and drafting contracts or providing brand exposure and fundraising opportunities.
Hamilton Locke has provided ongoing pro bono legal support to The Hunger Project in a range of areas, including property and general corporate advisory.
