Stanbic Bank Botswana is passionate about working to make a positive, meaningful difference in the education sector. This aligns with the Bank’s Corporate Social Investment (CSI) pillars, wherein Education is a key tenet. A recent testament to this was the Bank’s handover of materials to disadvantaged youth at Therisanyo Primary School in Old Naledi. The Stanbic Bank Botswana Finance Department donated uniforms and personal hygiene products to children on Friday the 6th of July 2018.
Stanbic Bank’s Finance team, led by Ms Realeboga Hassam, Acting Chief Finance Officer, presented items worth P32,979.46 to Therisanyo Primary School leadership and its Parents and Teacher’s Association (PTA). Items donated were as follows:
With its focus on corporate social investment, Stanbic Bank considers it a business imperative to support and help uplift the communities in which it operates. “With this initiative, we are trying to empower youth of tomorrow, our future leaders. This is how our team are working to make a difference, demonstrating the culture of colleague volunteering and employee participation that we drive within the Bank.” said Stanbic Bank Botswana, Ms Realeboga Hassam, Acting Chief Finance Officer.
Stanbic Bank believes that not only will pupils benefit in the form of clothing, but that the items donated will also provide a conducive learning environment in the sense that pupils will focus on their studies. Stanbic Bank Botswana believes that no child’s education should have to suffer because of a lack of basic needs.
“We thank Therisanyo Primary School for the warm welcome and for engaging us in our effort to give back to our communities. Indeed, we vow to continue to better the lives of those less fortunate in our society, for CSI is an inherent part of our strategy and our culture as Stanbic Bank and has been for 26 years now.” concluded Ms Hassam.
