Warren Averett has partnered with Compassion International (Compassion) since 2008, providing opportunities for employees to sponsor children in Rwanda and give beyond the Firm’s physical footprint. Compassion International is a global organization that seeks to meet the physical and spiritual needs of children in impoverished areas across the world. Firm employees who sponsor children through Compassion give a monthly monetary donation to cover a specific child’s education, nutrition and other needs. Warren Averett team members sponsor all of the children in two Compassion villages and some of the children in a third. That amounts to over 140 children who are being sponsored by Firm employees, and Warren Averett expects that number to grow!
Not only do our employees have the opportunity to give financially, but our Firm also offers team members the chance to visit these sponsored children in Rwanda. Recently, four of our Warren Averett team members traveled to the other side of the world to see how we are making an impact! Clint Freeman, Marissa Marshall, Tiffany Johnson and Frances Boney traveled to Rwanda this summer to see Compassion in action.
This team visited four Compassion villages: two of which are sponsored by Warren Averett, one that the Firm hopes to sponsor in the near future and one Compassion urban center. Our team members saw the impact their individual contributions had in the lives of these children, and they also saw how contributing over time can truly improve the quality of life and change the course for these children.
Warren Averett is a proud partner with Compassion International, and our Firm looks forward to the continued support of the Compassion villages and children in Rwanda.
