Burgan Bank supports Int’l Day of People with Disabilities
Burgan Bank proudly announces its second sponsorship of ‘The International Day of People with Disabilities’, which is being organized by the “Ideal Education School” for students with special needs. This is an annual event being held with an aim to provide a frame for considering how people with disabilities are included in the society by promoting the removal of all types of barriers.
The event involved the participation of students and their parents in a series of programs and entertainment activities, while the bank was there to show its solidarity and support for people with special needs in Kuwait. The event included displaying the special needs students’ handmade arts and crafts which they have been working on during the year. Additionally, the event will be presenting an opportunity to people with disabilities to ensure that their rights, concerns and contributions are fully taken into consideration; this is in addition to helping in removing barriers to create an inclusive and accessible society for all.
It is worth mentioning that Burgan Bank’s support to this initiative falls under its recently launched full-fledged community program entitled ‘ENGAGE’ - Together to be the change. This program sheds light on important aspects affecting every segment of the society by promoting social welfare through educational, cultural, social and health initiatives. Burgan Bank’s approach to ‘ENGAGE’ begins with a vital principle that as a Kuwaiti financial institution, its conduct and policies should be aligned with the needs and interests of the Kuwaiti society.
