Reinforcing its commitment to humanitarian and charity efforts, Doha Bank, one of the largest private commercial banks in Qatar, has recently donated cash aid worth QR200,000 to Qatar Charity, one of the largest volunteering and humanitarian organisations in the world, to support its “Educate me!” campaign.
People in poor countries face many challenges in obtaining their right to education. Aiming to raise conscious generations strengthened with knowledge, and coinciding with the start of the new school year, Qatar Charity has launched its education campaign (Educate me! Let the hope continue!) to support educational projects.
Ahmed Al Henzab, Head of Administration & Property Department at Doha Bank said: “This aid is a part of our corporate social responsibility (CSR) program, which seeks to support initiatives that will make a profound impact on the lives of marginalized and vulnerable communities in Qatar and around the world.”
The “Educate Me… Let the Hope Continues” campaign is expected to benefit 8,000 students inside Qatar and orphaned students in 11 countries around the world. The campaign aims to help and cover educational costs, which include school bags, tuition fees and school uniforms, in addition to building and maintaining schools. The countries targeted by the campaign are Albania, Kosovo, Nigeria, Somalia, Palestine, Sudan, Kenya, Bangladesh, Kyrgyzstan, Turkey and Pakistan.
