BPL Global has been a proud supporter since 2018 of WeSeeHope, an international development organisation committed to creating sustainable change for vulnerable children in Southern and Eastern Africa. Focusing on education, child rights and economic empowerment, WeSeeHope develops community-led programmes for vulnerable children and their parents and guardians. Its aim is that children who are isolated, exploited or lacking the opportunity they deserve, have the skills to change their own futures, and that their families and communities are able to support them along the way.

Spear Clapham Junction
Another of our main charities in recent years has been Spear Clapham Junction. Spear is a year-long programme that equips 16-to-24-year-olds not in education, employment or training from disadvantaged backgrounds to find long-term employment. The Spear Programme, the flagship initiative of Resurgo Trust, has an incredibly strong track record of success – the Clapham Junction branch with which we are particularly associated since 2018 has helped over 500 young people back into work over the past six years.
Spear works by coaching young people to help overcome the attitudes and behaviours that are holding them back as well as providing training in practical skills such as how to write a CV, presenting in public, and mock interview practice. In addition to financial support, we have also hosted company visits for those on the Spear programme to give them a brief window into our world, and our staff have also assisted with mock interview days as part of the programme.

Justice and Care
Justice and Care helps to rescue people who have been trafficked and brutally exploited in slavery, working in both South Asia and Europe. Not only does it rescue those affected by slavery and help them rebuild their lives, Justice and Care also partners with law enforcement agencies to dismantle criminal networks and bring abusers to justice. Justice and Care also works with governments to bring about systemic change and tackle the underlying issues behind modern slavery.
We have supported Justice and Care for a number of years now and it continues to be one of our main charities. You can read more about their work here.
