Social responsibility and the banking sector, an integral partnership and sustainable development
The social responsibility activities of Kuwaiti banks are comprehensive and diversified as they extend throughout the year and include the humanitarian, environmental, health, cultural, developmental and social fields as well as national events, holidays and religious seasons.
Kuwaiti banks are greatly concerned with their responsibility towards the community and their developmental role in its service. Many of the social responsibility initiatives of banks are characterized by continuity and sustainability, especially those related to establishing and supporting health institutions, and working to empower the youth and develop their capabilities.
Hence, the Kuwaiti banks’ contribution in the Kafa’a initiative comes in this context, where the parties participating in the initiative seek to develop the community through education and training with an interest in the youth group, and concern for building national capabilities to be an active partner in the country’s development process.
These social initiatives are in line with the agenda of sustainable global development during the period from 2015 to 2030 and its seventeen goals, which were agreed upon by the leaders and heads of State of the world during the World Summit on Sustainable Development held in New York in September 2015.
