Deutsche Bank Asia staff converge in Thailand to refurbish flood-affected school

November 2012 │ Thailand

On November 24, 110 employees from the Institutional Client Group (ICG) Asia, Debt Sales team converged in Bangkok, Thailand, from eleven locations across Asia to participate in a self-funded team building event to refurbish the Wat Mongkol Pugaram school. The school is located in a farming community, educating 78 primary school students, and was badly damaged by the floods in 2011. The project was conducted with the MySchool charity, a philanthropic initiative started in 1991 by Thai businessman Akraravud Chankajorn (Ohm) to improve the lives of children from economically-challenged communities of rural Thailand.

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.
