This page is in memory of our much loved colleague Mehraab Nazir and his youngest son Zain, who tragically passed away in April 2022.
In line with Mehraab's family’s wishes we are fundraising for Ripple Africa - a development charity which empowers local communities to improve education, the environment and healthcare in Malawi. Reaching our target will allow the charity to build a new classroom block at Chiomba pre-school in the Nkhata Bay District, offering life changing opportunities for over 100 students.
While the firm has committed seed funding to enable work to begin on the project, if we meet our Givey fundraising target the initial investment will be redistributed to further charitable initiatives we are currently finalising in memory of Mehraab. Colleagues should use this page for all fundraising events across our offices as well as personal donations - where applicable please mention the event and office you are fundraising for when you make your donation.
Geoff Furber, CEO and Founder, Ripple Africa: "I would like to thank everyone who, in memory of your colleague Mehraab, is fundraising to raise money to build the new classroom block at Chiomba.

With your help this can now continue. Good luck with your fundraising. Have fun and thank you so much WFW for your amazing contribution."
Nikki Khoram, Corporate Partnerships Manager and Project Development Lead, Ripple Africa: "Chiomba Pre-school provides an early year’s education and a daily nutritious meal to 104 children aged 2 to 6.

We are all really grateful to everyone at Watson Farley and Williams who are supporting this project in memory of Mehraab."
