Properly have been following Street Child for a while now and have always been impressed with their efforts to grow the charity and realise their vision of seeing every child in school.
We are proud to announce that in 2021, Properly will be partnering with Street Child and donating a percentage of all turnover to provide desks for African school children in an initiative we are calling ‘A Desk For a Desk’. Essentially, all fees obtained by Properly through office brokerage will result in a donation to an African school so the more desks we transact, the more desks we can provide to those in need.
We believe that everything starts with education and have been lucky enough through our own childhoods to have received a level education that can often be taken for granted. We forget that poorer communities sometimes can’t even afford the very basic requirements of learning such as a desk and a chair to sit on. Currently, children are sitting on a dusty floor for up to 8 hours a day. Not only is this horribly uncomfortable, it makes the children more susceptible to diseases and makes it extremely difficult for them to learn to write.
Street Child have recently merged with Build Africa who share the same goal of giving every child an opportunity to learn. Between the two charities they have extended their reach across multiple African countries.
Whilst Properly is ‘just an office-search company’ based many miles away, we are also passionate about growing a firm and a brand that promotes helping others, not only in our local community but worldwide. We are aware that as we grow as a business we will increasingly be presented with opportunities to have a profound effect on those in need.
