Kina Bank gives back to school clients

first_imgBY NATALIE CHOLOHEI KINA Bank is reaching out to its Esiloan clients nationwide and has recently donated 200 T shirts to the Lae International School students. In an effort to reach out to the community, the Bank is going into schools that are part of their Esiloan product as an appreciation for banking with Kina Bank. Kina Bank manager Esiloan branch Philo Antonette Warakoi last Friday donated 200 T-shirts to the school. “Lae International School has recently come on board our Esiloan product whereby they are offering us business and in return we have to give something to them,” Warakoi said. “It is part of our community obligation to give to the people to make our presence felt in the communities,” she said. Lae International School principal Rosalea Cameron thanked the bank and said the involvement of students with the community is very important to the school. “We are very grateful. Engaging with the community is very important to us and we’re working with the students to understand that they’ve got an obligation to look after the community. “It is important being that we try to raise ethical leaders of Papua New Guinea thus engaging with reputable businesses,” Cameron said. The Bank will be donating another 200 shirts to Lae Secondary School today. Lae Secondary School is not a client to the Bank but the Bank has recognised it its provincial secondary school status to give them something. The same donation will be carried out in other centers as well.last_img read more
