In 2018, we began a four-year partnership with The Prince’s Trust, a UK-based organisation providing capacity-building and job-readiness opportunities to young people who face barriers to education and employment.

Case Study, Sustainability, Goal 4: Quality education
As Patrons of The Prince’s Trust, we support the organisation with a financial contribution of £50,000 GBP per year and by enabling our employees to volunteer as mentors.
In 2017 and 2018, The Prince’s Trust supported more than 66,000 young people across the UK. We hope that our partnership will meaningfully contribute to the Trust’s goal of helping one million young people over the next ten years.
Funding for STEM-related activities
Around half of our financial contributions support STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) education through a series of STEM-enrichment workshops. The workshops provide young participants with the tools and knowledge that help diversify their capabilities and secure future employment opportunities.
We have also organised several volunteering opportunities for our people to directly offer their support. During the ‘World of Work Day’, we welcomed young participants to our offices in London, where they spent the day with our employees developing their interpersonal skills, enhancing their CVs and practising interviews. Five Hikma mentors took part in the day. We also participated in the ‘Palace to Palace’ cycle challenge to raise funds for the Trust and in doing so helped them exceed their fundraising goal by 169%.
