"CHARITY begins at home"
24th April 2008
Every purchase made by using SCBNL Credit Card in Nepal will now contribute towards the Banks community investment program, 'Seeing is Believing'.
Standard Chartered always believes in giving back to the community where it operates. In a world where millions of people, due to poverty, live life with easily avoidable blindness, Standard Chartered strives to help them get back their precious power of sight through its `Seeing is Believing’ initiative. `Seeing is Believing’ is the Bank’s global CSR initiative for raising funds to help sight restoration. In Phase III of `Seeing is Believing,’ SCB Group reached its goal of raising $10 million by 2010, to make a difference to the lives of 10 million people globally, three years ahead of the target.
To add on to this, SCB Nepal has made a pledge to contribute a certain amount against every purchase made by using SCBNL Visa Classic and MasterCard Gold Credit Card towards the `Seeing is Believing’ initiative. The more the card is utilized the more is contributed towards this noble cause.
Since the beginning of the Banks efforts with `Seeing is Believing’ initiative in Nepal, the Bank has already brought light to the lives of over 3,000 people with the active support of all its stakeholders and passionate involvement of its people.
