April 27th 2016
Al Ahli Bank of Kuwait (ABK) marked the anniversary of Earth Day, one of the most significant environmental causes worldwide, by turning off the lights at the Bank’s Head Office in Kuwait City, Ahmed Al Jaber Street, on 22 April, 2016. The Bank demonstrated its support for Earth Day by conserving energy through minimizing electricity use, and hence emphasizing the message behind this internationally celebrated day.
ABK also participated by raising awareness of this important day among students with special needs, when a group of staff members visited the Al Wafaa School for Special Needs in Hawally, on Thursday 21 April 2016. The aim of the visit was to raise awareness of the importance of preserving and cultivating areas, and to engage the students in an educational activity.
The Bank supplied the school with plants, where 30 students participated in planting the school garden with the help of teachers and staff, and spent a fun-filled and informative day.
ABK’s initiative to raise awareness of Earth Day within the special needs community falls in line with its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) strategy for 2016, which focuses on supporting individuals with special needs through integration into the community and promoting a sense of equality amongst the general public.
