Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is an integral part of the way we do business at Askari Bank, and is a vital element of our strategy. As a socially conscious organization, Askari Bank actively contributes to the lives of the less privileged through various charitable organizations that work for the welfare of the society.
We promote various initiatives that encourage community growth and development. As such, Askari Bank contributes to a number of programs related to education, health and relief work, environmental causes, cultural endeavours and sports events.
We have also initiated an in-house training program for the graduate children of our less-earning employees with the aim of enhancing employment opportunities for them. Through the program, the children of low-cadre bank employees can appear for a standardised test following graduation from university, and, upon passing the test, are given paid training and guaranteed employment. We recognize this program as our way of paying it forward and contributing to the lives of people around us.
