Staff in Dubai participate in city-wide initiative, ‘Give & Gain’

Deutsche Bank staff in Dubai recently participated in a nation-wide event organized by the Dubai Chamber called ‘Give & Gain’. This week-long initiative takes place every year in the second week of April and encourages staff from various private sector companies to give their time to volunteer for a good cause at a local community-based organisation.

In line with Deutsche Bank’s focus on corporate citizenship activities where we can best serve people and society, this year 8 Dubai-based staff volunteered at the Manzil Centre, a non-profit centre dedicated to actively promoting inclusion by providing a professional learning environment for persons with disabilities to nurture their potential & develop their social, educational & vocational skills.

Nooriya Faris, the coordinator of the Manzil Centre was happy with Deutsche Bank’s participation for the third year in a row: “The Manzil team and the students were very happy to receive Deutsche Bank volunteers on GIve & Gain Day. The volunteers were keen to know the students and interacted with them during the various activities. They had a fun and exciting time together! Thank you for being part of the programme”.

Our staff engaged in a variety of fun activities with the children at the centre, including arts and crafts, jewelry-making, baking and games. Oliver Funck, Head of Global Transaction Banking – Middle East & Africa, was one of the volunteers involved and had this to say: "I'm grateful for the opportunity to interact with great kids and inspiring teachers. I'll be back for sure". Also commenting on her engagement in this community-based volunteering, Anabel Martinez-Mari, Compliance Testing AVP, said: “Volunteering with Manzil has been a great experience, the workshops organized were the perfect way to interact and create a nice moment. In my case, I left the session with a lovely little craft created with the kids, which is at my desk reminding me of the amazing experience. Definitely an activity I would recommend anyone to join”.
