TAKATOKWANE – In keeping true to their purpose, Botswana is our home, we drive her growth, Stanbic Bank Botswana officially handed-over community relief collateral to Mahupu Unified Secondary School in Takatokwane. The Bank’s donation of 1850 protective masks, 150 Toiletry Hampers and 100 sanitisers comes as part of their unwavering commitment to uplift the communities in which they serve.
The Bank is constantly gravitating towards being more than just a place people keep their money but a true partner in the lives of Batswana. Its strategy, actions, and culture are premised on clear and unwavering National pride, and a desire to actively drive growth in the communities they serve and indeed our Nation at large.
Said, Stanbic Bank Botswana Communications Manager, Ms. Ruth Lorato Sibanda, “As Stanbic Bank Botswana we recognise that our growth is inherently interwoven with that of Botswana and her people. Thus, we are passionate about contributing towards sustainable success and growth for Botswana and indeed Batswana. The Bank has a longstanding relationship with the faculty and students of Mahupu Unified Secondary School as we believe that our youth are indeed our future. Our aim is to empower Botswana’s youth with the necessary motivation and infrastructure to help promote academic excellence. This is a long-term vision, ensuring we educate our youth and support them through their growth journeys.”
This initiative speaks to Stanbic Bank Botswana’s SEE Value Driver which focuses on the Social, Economic and Environmental impact of how the Bank does business. The Bank has a well-established relationship with Mahupu Unified Secondary School, having hosted 60 Business Studies students from the school for an educational trip to Gaborone in March 2020. Held at the Bank’s Head Office, the all-day engagement presented an opportunity for the Bank to present to the students on Money, Banking and Finance topics to unpack their school curriculum with the aim of helping them improve their academic performance.
Concluded Sibanda, “We hope that our efforts here today will inspire more corporates to get involved in their communities and to do what they can to make a meaningful difference where it matters most. As Stanbic Bank Botswana we commend his Excellency the President of the Republic of Botswana, Dr. Eric Keabetswe Mokgweetsi Masisi as well as his entire team for working tirelessly towards defeating the virus in Botswana. This journey has not been, by any measure, a small task. However, you all rose to the occasion and continue to lead Batswana through what has been challenging terrains. IT CAN BE.”
