BNP Paribas (Suisse) SA and Raleigh partners for a lasting change in Nepal

July 12, 2016

Une Echonet 3BNP Paribas (Suisse) SA has entered into 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 deliver sustainable projects in Nepal, which was hit by two major 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 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 grow into 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 Raleigh expeditions to Nepal by  in 2016, 2017 and 2018 to use 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.
