We had an excellent opportunity to meet Ms Annie Yeo, Head of Communications and CSR, Asia at Deutsche Bank.
AkarakA Foundation is grateful for 10-years long engagement and support from Deutsche Bank, in helping us achieve our objective – eliminate poverty through education, one student at a time. We have offered financial assistance through scholarships to young-adults from underprivileged families, to pursue higher education so that they become financially independent and are able to emerge out (along with their families) of the vicious cycle of poverty. We implemented this through our university partners – Ngee Ann Polytechnic, Temasek Polytechnic, Yong-en Care Centre, De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde, Monark Foundation, Po Leung Kuk/Henrik Nielsen/Hong Kong Union Scholarship Fund.
Thank you – Annie Yeo, Esther Liu and the entire CSR team at Deutsche Bank for the immense support and understanding extended to AkarakA Foundation over last 10 years. Your support has helped us bring happiness to the number of families in Singapore, Philippines and Hong Kong!
