This initiative was driven by Marzio Keiling, the Head of ICG Asia Pacific. "At Deutsche Bank, we strongly believe in engaging in a positive way with the communities within which we live and work. Our staff want to not only strive toward their own team goals but also play a vital part in the bigger picture" says Keiling.
“The MySchool project has had enormous and long-term social impact, not only in encouraging young children to go to school but also improving communities as a whole. Our Bangkok Branch has been working with this charity partner to rebuild and refurbish schools in rural areas since 2008. That’s why when I was approached by the ICG team, I had no hesitation in recommending this project to them,” said Annie Yeo, Head of CSR for Asia Pacific.
Earlier this year, the Deutsche Bank Bangkok team joined hands to paint a new library building and a computer room at Baan Bor Nam School in the Lopburi Province, Thailand. The project provided children from low income households and villagers with access to a library and computer room to help them broaden their knowledge.
