Corporate Social Responsibility

Corporate social responsibility is especially important to us, as we want to do our best for our employees, clients, and our community. This page outlines how we promote positive change and take responsibility of our social, environmental, and economic impact.

Our guiding principles

We believe that as a business we have a corporate and social responsibility to achieve good environmental practice and provide meaningful support to our community. We further aspire to be considerate of all our employees and customers alike, and continuously operate in a sustainable manner within each area of our business.

As a part of our guiding principles it is our priority to encourage our employees, customers, suppliers and all business associates to act in an equally corporate and socially responsible manner.

By following our guiding principles we aim to deliver on our duty of care towards future generations.

 
 

The Charity’s Mission

Empower Ugandans living below the poverty line, especially children and women.

To teach them how to earn an income, using a “learning-by-doing” methodology, which allows them to meet their basic needs as well as lead healthy, productive, and dignified lives.

Sajjad went to the Lwengo District in Uganda to see first-hand how the support from Oracle Solicitors was helping the community.

Sajjad made a promise to his dying mother to provide drinking water to communities in need. This led Sajjad to build a well for a Ugandan community which otherwise had to walk three miles to obtain fresh water. 

Sajjad then met Joseph (Joy for Humanity) and since then Oracle Solicitors have become involved in a wider project working to bring sustained changes to the lives of Ugandan people living in rural communities.

Education

Education for all primary level children. These include orphans who are also housed within a section of the school.

There are plans to build a secondary school which will allow the children to continue their education.

Health

A programme has been developed to assess and treat all health needs of children and adults in rural communities.

A new health centre is currently under construction which will include:

  • Separate wards for men, women, and children
  • A maternity/delivery wing
  • A laboratory – for medical tests that currently are not possible, enabling better diagnosis and consequently treatment
  • A dental suite
  • Community Health Education – community village nurses will visit homes and pro-actively identify health needs.
 
Orphanage

UNICEF and UNAIDS approximate that 47.5 million orphans live in Sub-Saharan Africa. 2.5 million of these children live in Uganda.

Oracle Solicitors directly supports the housing and the education for the Orphans within this project.

Mindset and Adult Learning

A system of farming has been introduced which will train the rural communities to become pig and chicken farmers. In turn, these villagers will share their wealth and knowledge to help two neighbours and the scheme will continue each year.  The plan is to get families to become self-sufficient so that they are better able to sustain themselves and begin to thrive doing so 

In turn each family will contribute a small amount of money towards a localised health system, creating a micro health system.

 

The Community

Oracle Solicitors is actively supporting community investment initiatives, supporting charities, local organisations, and a sports team. We do this so that Oracle are able to give back to the community of which we are a part.

Our relationship with the communities that we serve are very important to us. When developing the services offered by the business, we aim to focus on improvements to the community as a whole, rather than just for individual customers.

In line with our core values, our strategy within the community involves us having high levels of engagement with local charities and organisations.

We often provide work experience opportunities for university students, support mentoring schemes and give career advice to students considering the law as a profession.

In the past we have participated in fundraising and sponsorship events for charities such as:
