As part of this year’s social responsibility initiatives, and to raise financial literacy amongst children, Al Rajhi Bank implemented a series of training courses and a trade exhibition called “Financial Awareness for the Little Trader.” The first initiative launched in Al Madinah August 20- 25, 2017 and included 3 days of training followed by a trade exhibition. There, beneficiaries received training and become aware of business activities, selling and purchasing mechanisms, and financial transactions.
With the attendance of Our Children Foundation in Al Madinah, the training courses and exhibition will run for six months across the Kingdom starting from Al Madinah moving on to Riyadh, Jizan, Hafr Al Batin, Hail and Qassim.
A group of employees from the Ladies branches in Al Madinah participated alongside beneficiaries in various activities throughout the training course and exhibition. The employees also attended the trade exhibition believing their contribution was vital to increase financial awareness and important to strengthen the bonds between Bank and the community and enhance the relationship between employees and the community members.
It is worth mentioning that this initiative is one of the many 2017 social responsibility programs set to run well into the first quarter of 2018 and focus on voluntary participation and activating the social role of employees across the Kingdom.
