Deutsche Bank launches aid programme for teenage orphans

April 2013 │ Korea

In April 2013, Deutsche Bank Korea launched an assistance programme to help 100 orphans in their teens to integrate into society.

As Korean law typically requires orphans to leave an orphanage once they reach 18 years of age, it is important for the youths to be mentally and emotionally prepared for independent living. Deutsche Bank Korea has collaborated with the Korea Youth Counseling & Welfare Institute, a sub-agency of the Ministry of Gender Equality and Family, to run a weekly community and social integration curriculum to educate the youths and prepare them for their future.

This collaboration was formalized on April 23, 2013 when Deutsche Bank, represented by a member of senior management, Jeffrey Chung, received a plaque of thanks from the Minister for Gender Equality and Family, Ms. Youn-Sun Cho.
