FratiniVergano believes in giving back to the community and it does so at the individual and collective level.
The firm implements and sponsors programmes in the areas of education and social support as part of our social responsibility policy. A minimum yearly contribution equaling 1% of the combined gross salary of all lawyers at the firm is donated to the following charitable initiatives through the selected partners indicated below.
As a strong believer in the power of education to change the world, FratiniVergano has partnered with Room to Read© in order to help children, particularly girls, in the developing world gain the lifelong gift of education. The stated mission of Room to Read© is to “partner with local communities throughout the developing world to provide quality educational opportunities by establishing libraries, creating local language children’s literature, constructing schools, and providing education to girls. Room to Read© seeks to intervene early in the lives of children in the belief that education empowers people to improve socioeconomic conditions for their families, communities, countries and future generations. Through the opportunities that only education can provide, Room to Read© strives to break the cycle of poverty, one child at a time”. FratiniVergano shares this objective and approach and, for this reason, has partnered with Room to Read©.
In particular, we have decided to concentrate our resources to sponsor the Girls’ Education Program, through which Room to Read© provides long-term scholarships to girls so that they have the opportunity to go to school. In light of FratiniVergano’s long-standing professional relationship with the ASEAN Region and deep affection for its people, we have decided to focus our resources by making the commitment with Room to Read© to fund, each year, ten years of a girl’s education, in a developing country in the ASEAN region, all the way through the secondary level.
FratiniVergano has decided to support the activities of the “Fondation contre le Cancer” in its fight against this terrible illness. The stated mission of this organization is threefold: 1) to increase patients’ survival chances; 2) to improve the quality of life of patients; and 3) to support prevention campaigns.
In particular, we have decided to concentrate our resources by focusing on the second objective. We support the “Fondation contre le Cancer” in a number of daily practical activities aimed at assisting patients and their families, particularly the less privileged ones, to afford treatments, counseling, medical attention and logistical needs.
