As part of its Born to Be programme, Deutsche Bank partners with The Learning Farm to provide young people living on the streets with vocational training in organic agriculture – skills that will help them earn a sustainable livelihood in future.
Deutsche Bank is funding the enrolment of three students in the advanced 200-day programme. These young people display both interest and aptitude to further their education in agriculture. They will develop leadership, entrepreneurship and social skills, plus apply the knowledge gained on an actual farm, sharpening their own business acumen. This will increase their employability and give them the necessary skills to start their own business.
Yayasan Kampus Diakoneia (KDM) cares for street children. The non-profit organisation seeks to remove children from the streets and give them an education. Through its entrepreneurial programme, the children learn life skills and are given opportunities in traineeship in order to start a life of their own.
Through Born to Be, Deutsche Bank funds several programmes such as Music, Art, Computer, and Cooking in KDM.
