CREATING WINNING PARTNERSHIPS THROUGH CORPORATE SOCIAL INVESTMENT
Bank Windhoek today released its Corporate Social Investment report for the 2014/2015 financial year which ended on 30 June 2015.
During the year under review, Bank Windhoek invested more than N$6.3 million in Namibian communities, through the Bank Windhoek Social Investment Fund and its portfolio of sponsorships and donations. The Bank’s Social Investment Fund was established in 2002 and focuses on Education, Entrepreneurship development/job creation and Health.
However, the Bank has fulfilled its role as a responsible corporate citizen with steadfast commitment and passion, since the Bank’s establishment in 1982.
Marlize Horn, Executive Officer: Group Marketing and Corporate Communication Services at Bank Windhoek said: “Bank Windhoek is proud of its contribution to the communities which we serve and will continue to play a meaningful role, within our means, to the sustainable development and prosperity of our country.”
The Bank’s philosophy of having a balanced portfolio leads to further support in areas of welfare, agriculture, education, arts and culture, sport and even analytical thinking.
Bank Windhoek works closely with each beneficiary on their proposed projects to ensure that they become sustainable an have for the past two years, encouraged them to form working partnerships to increase the chances of success and ensure maximum reach of targeted recipients. Learning to work together also avoids duplication.
One of the successes of working partnerships was between Beautiful Kidz Anusa and Women at Work Training Centre, who continue to collaborate on various projects related to training and providing job opportunities for unemployed women.
