Commercial Bank (CBQ) has adopted the Al Noor Institute for the Blind as a charitable cause for the second year and raised QAR 50,000 towards the set-up of an IT classroom.
The donation will help provide Al Noor Institute’s students the opportunity to lead everyday normal lives by encouraging continuous education, creation of innovative ideas and independency, the Qatari bank said Wednesday.
CBQ Chief Executive Officer Abdulla Saleh Al Raisi said, “Commercial Bank is honoured to participate and assist the visually impaired students of Al Noor Institute with their desire for continuous learning with computers, which will allow for the expansion of knowledge through access to educational websites and keeping up to date with the world’s changing technologies.”
“At CBQ, we believe that ‘everything is possible’, and we hope to impart the same aspiration in Al Noor Institute’s students and the Qatari community at large, by providing the students with the appropriate tools to enhance their skills and encourage them to believe that everything is achievable in their lives,” he added.
Al Noor Institute General Director Dr. Hayat Khalil Nazar appreciated the bank for supporting the institute and its educational programmes and various activities.
Through a well-defined Corporate Social Responsibility framework and a determined commitment to pursue activities that parallel its business aspirations, Commercial Bank established a set of corporate and social principles to generate value for its shareholders, customers, its staff and society, the bank said.
