Our CSR efforts will continue to support The Qatar National Vision 2030 and the development of people as well as our community.
In line with Ahlibank’s strategy to be at the “heart of the community”, we have demonstrated our commitment through action. We focus on supporting causes that matter to communities throughout Qatar and enriching the lives of Qatar residents. This is of utmost importance to both our staff and leadership. Through a wide range of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) activities, we demonstrate our dedication to people’s welfare at home and abroad.
The Qatar Society for Rehabilitation of Special Needs was once more the beneficiary of a donation from Ahli Bank. We were the society’s sole sponsor at an event honouring outstanding disabled students. We also sponsored the 15th Gulf Disability Society Forum, which took place in Doha. Our donations to the society signal our support of local not for profit organisations and reflect our belief in helping individuals within communities throughout Qatar.
In the spirit of fostering camaraderie among Qatar-based banks and bankers, Ahlibank continued in 2015 its participation in the National Sports Day activities organised and hosted by the Qatar Central Bank. We also, in partnership with Education Above All (EAA)’s Educate A Child programme, hosted a family sports day event to demonstrate our commitment to National Sport Day.
We were proud to be among the primary sponsors of Entrepreneurship in Economic Development conference held in early March. This forum had as its purpose of “Fostering the New Generation of Entrepreneurs in Qatar and the Gulf”.
To demonstrate the social commitment to Qatar, a group of Ahlibank employees visited the Qatar Foundation for Elderly People Care "Ehsan". The visit aimed to deliver special thanks and gratitude to the elderly, in recognition of their efforts and contribution they have made within the local community.
Ahlibank held an awards ceremony at Qatar Finance and Business Academy (QFBA) to celebrate the first 10 graduates of the “Ahlibank Kawader” programme. Developed by Ahlibank, this bespoke programme aims to recruit, develop and build in-depth expertise in banking and finance amongst Qatari Nationals.
Ahlibank will continue to play a positive role in society. Our backing of diverse social, educational, cultural, health, and sporting activities in Qatar is ongoing and fundamental to our corporate values and support our commitment to be at the “heart of the community”.
