KPMG supports Fairtrade Africa
BRIGHT is KPMG Europe’s first skills-based pro-bono project that supports the Millennium Development Goals. The global financial services group aims to support capacity building in the core areas of finance, risk management, operational excellence, human resources, IT and marketing. During 2011, the project will be rolled out across Africa for Fairtrade Africa, its members and partners.
The project consists of four specific components: financial systems for Fairtrade Africa, business support for Fairtrade Labelling in Kenya, business support for Fairtrade Labelling in South Africa, and the creation of a financial training manual for Fairtrade producers which will be distributed across Africa.
