Art Inspires

Launched by Deutsche Knowledge Services in the Philippines, the Art Inspires programme aims to recognise young up-and-coming local artists in Philippine universities with the Deutsche Bank Excellence in Art Award.

The first round of three winners was announced in February 2014 following review by a panel of distinguished judges. Their artworks are now proudly displayed in our offices.

In turn, the winners conduct regular Art Clinics for street children, a programme which is part of Art Inspires and helps disadvantaged children to explore their artistic potential.

Childhope Asia Philippines

Every child has the potential to shine. Initiated by Deutsche Knowledge Services in the Philippines in 2009, Rock-Ed is based on the belief that music plays a key role in empowering children while they discover their musical talent.  Every week, working with Childhope Philippines, close to 20 Deutsche staff volunteers spend their Saturday introducing Manila’s street children to the wonders of music, with lessons spanning guitar, bass, piano, drums, dance and vocals.

Childhope Philippines is a non-profit organisation involved in promoting the welfare of street children, working toward liberating them from the suffering caused by working and living on the streets. Aside from Rock-Ed, Deutsche Bank also funds Childhope’s mobile health clinic, which provides medical care, preventative health services and health awareness training for disadvantaged street children.

Every child has the right to basic education. Families and Children for Empowerment and Development Foundation (FCED) seeks to empower the children of the urban poor in the slum areas in Manila by providing educational assistance.

Philippine Christian Foundation

Philippine Christian Foundation (PCF) aims to improve the quality of life in the Philippines' poorest communities, and to end child labour through a holistic programme which includes education, health, nutrition and social work intervention.  

As part of Born to Be, Deutsche Bank supports the education of 22 children who are part of the PCF Choir. The majority of these children live and work in the Smokey Mountain Landfill in Manila. They all dream for a better life in the future and hold on to education as their only hope to get out of poverty. As they strive to realise their dreams, their singing provides a reprieve from the harsh realities they live with.

Through the Deutsche Bank support, these children receive full education subsidy, two meals a day, school bus service, and medical assistance.
