People & Change

Helping poor families

From an early age, Fleur (consultant people & change) has been interested in social issues. Last year she and colleagues worked together on an assignment for the Sam& Foundation. This organization is committed to helping  families with financial issues, that for instance cannot afford  school supplies, sports, music and swimming lessons or celebrating a birthday. Unfortunately, 1 in 12 children grows up in poverty and there is too little awareness about this. Shame plays a major role, but sometimes people just do not know where to go for help.

KPMG was asked to think about ways to bring Sam& to the attention of companies. Research has shown that no fewer than 62% of employers have employees with financial problems. With a program for companies, we help to raise the awareness of Sam&: What do we understand by poverty? How do we recognize signals? And where can someone go for help? Our ultimate goal: more parents seeking help with Sam&. After all, every child deserves a chance to participate fully.
