The plight of the people in the communities we serve is at the heart of everything we do! Since our inception, Our Bank has consistently and deliberately dedicated priceless time and resources to tranaforming lives and improving the welfare of the communities in which we operate. Ultimately, our commitment goes beyond banking. It’s equally about doing the right thing and that is why, in line with our Corporate Social Responsibility policy, every year, we devote up to 1 per cent of our previous year's net profits towards CSR.
During 2018, our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiatives had extensive impact and coverage in Uganda. Through our flagship CSR program, Bridging the Cancer Gap, we increased our cancer awareness outreach in the country further, and strengthened our financial literacy program by introducing a new initiative dubbed the Anti-fraud campaign.
