Wikborg Rein Supports "Twinning" Initiative to Fund Classrooms
Elite global law firm Wikborg Rein is supporting a boardroom and toilet "twinning" partnership to help fund a school classroom build in a remote community in Pakistan.
The partnership, which was originally launched last year by ThirdWay Trust - the charity venture of building contractor and commercial interior fit out and office refurbishment specialist, ThirdWay, and charity Toilet Twinning, to encourage ThirdWay clients to "twin" their toilets with schools in developing countries to raise funding, has since expanded to include boardroom twinning.
Wikborg Rein, which learnt about the initiative after appointing ThirdWay to design and build a new UK headquarters building on Cannon Street in the City of London, signed up to twin three office toilets as well as its boardroom.
Toilet Twinning were pleased to announce that donations from Wikborg Rein and ThirdWay would cover the cost of building two new kindergarten classrooms in Pakistan.
The recently completed project features enhances early years education and improves children's chances of escaping poverty.
The build was launched with a foundation stone laying ceremony attended by a local Bishop, an occasion Toilet Twinning CEO, Lorraine Kingsley, describes as essential for achieving "community buy-in".
