BNP Paribas (Suisse) SA has entered in to a three-year partnership with Raleigh International for a significant lasting impact in Nepal.
With the support from BNP Paribas (Suisse) SA, Raleigh intends to implement development projects in Nepal, which was hit by two earthquakes in 2015, through volunteers and Nepalese people.
The volunteers will work with some of the poorest and hardest hit rural communities to rebuild houses and improve water and sanitation.
The bank, through these Raleigh projects, will make a difference in a country badly in need of help. The bank is also investing in its staff by giving them the opportunity to take part in the volunteering effort and to become inspired responsible leaders.
For BNP Paribas (Suisse) SA, this partnership means acting as a responsible actor by participating in concrete and long-lasting projects, developing talents and strengthening their contribution to the Group CSR’s policy.
Employees from BNP Paribas (Suisse) SA will therefore participate as Volunteers or Volunteer Managers in missions organised in Nepal by Raleigh in 2016, 2017 and 2018 by using their financial skills to help youth entrepreneurs.
This partnership is intended to have a real impact on the ground in Nepal, boost motivation within the bank and influence leadership development for the bank’s staff.
