Fidelity Bank Ghana Limited has donated 500 dustbins to support the Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly (KMA)'s Keep the City Clean and Green Project.
This initiative is part of the Bank’s contribution towards a clean and green Kumasi. It is also to ensure that indigenes of Kumasi are healthy and strong.
At a brief ceremony in Kumasi, the Deputy Managing Director, Julian Kingsley Opuni said, “at Fidelity Bank we are not only interested in the financial well-being of our customers but also their physical well-being.
"We believe in the vision of the KMA to make Kumasi clean and green, hence our support for this sanitation project.”
We believe these 500 dustbins will significantly help in reducing unsanitary conditions in the Kumasi Metropolis. Fidelity Bank is also open to collaborate more with the KMA in other areas of development, he added.
Fidelity Bank is well known for its contribution to Community Projects through initiatives in the past such as donation towards the construction of the new maternity block for the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital.
The Bank has also in the past organized several financial literacy programmes for students in tertiary institutions to empower them to make sound financial decisions.
Additionally, Fidelity Bank in partnership with United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and SNV Netherlands Development Organization, supports the deprived farming communities in the northern part of Ghana through education on the essence of savings.
Farmers who achieve their set savings target are rewarded with fertilizer, weedicides and mobile phones. So far 679 farmers have undergone the training and over 380 farmers have been rewarded.
