Staff involvement


The Bank marked Nelson Mandela International Day, celebrated on 18 July every year, by encouraging all employees to give their time to the community. The objective of Mandela Day is to inspire individuals to take action to help change the world for the better, and in doing so build a global movement for good. Ultimately it seeks to empower communities everywhere. The Bank gave the opportunity to its employees to give back time to the community by allowing them to help a non-governmental organisations (NGOs) that they have at heart. 

The NGOs that were selected by the employees for this initiative were:

  • Association des Amis de Don Bosco –The employees contributed to enhance the living conditions of the children by improving the current infrastructure of the orphanage.
  • Elles c Nous Association – The employees helped to improve the infrastructure by purchasing some of the classroom furniture and embellished the building by painting one of the external walls and doing some gardening in the yard.
