The BSP Community Development Project has donated two water tanks, eight drinking taps and a garbage can holder with four rubbish bins to Hagara Primary School in Hanuabada.
In two weeks, BSP Operations and IT strategic business unit staff with their families volunteered their time and resources during weekends to help deliver the project.
When handing over the completed project, Head of Customer Contact Centre, Sibona Kema, said that BSP community projects are undertaken nationwide by each branch/strategic business unit as a way for staff to contribute meaningfully back to the community.
The initiatives focus on education, health, sports, environment and other community based needs. This year’s project theme is based on renewable energy and the provision of clean water. Kema hopes that through their contribution today, it will make meaningful and lasting change in the community.
For many years students have been drinking dirty water, and poor sanitation has caused disease that has an impact on children in Hanuabada. Through providing these tanks the children now have access to clean and safe water.
BSP branches nationwide and strategic business units have delivered 39 community projects nationwide in 2015, and are pleased that they could contribute to helping Hagara Primary School.
The bank will no doubt continue to look at ways to improve everyday lives through worthy projects like this.
