Collecting stationery for the needy
The Bankers Association of Namibia (BAN) is once again making a
difference in the lives all Namibians. The Association has embarked on a
nationwide collection campaign which will culminate in bank employees taking to
the streets in Windhoek on 22 February and shaking tins in support of
underprivileged learners in need of stationery and school gear. Collection
points for stationery donations from the public will be set up at all participating
branches countrywide as from 24 January, giving the collection campaign a head
start of a month before the final Shake-A-Tin drive on the last day of the
Established in 1997, the Banker’s Association of Namibia, commonly known
as BAN, comprise of the major banking
institutions in Namibia, namely Bank Windhoek, Standard Bank, Nedbank, First
National Bank, Letshego Bank and Bank Bic.
Dedicated to making a difference on issues of common interest and relevant
to the banking and social sector, BAN supports worthy and socially uplifting
causes in a non-competitive environment where small, collective contributions
could mean a big difference.
This year marks BAN’s 21st
anniversary and we are “shaking
things up” by joining the “Writers of Hope” campaign to help collect stationery
for schools in dire need.
“Education has been highlighted as one of the most important investments
we can make in nation building, and BAN is proud to be able to step in and
support selected schools,” said BAN’s current chairperson and managing director
of Bank Windhoek, Baronice Hans.
“By joining hands with “Writers of Hope”, BAN aims to collect as much
stationery as possible, raise additional funds and through different activities
and donations, help make a difference and play our part in building our
future,” Hans said.
Donations can consist of used or new stationery items such as rulers,
pencils, pencil sharpeners, pens, exam pads, printing paper, clean exercise
books, files, school shoes or any other school items. For more information of
Shake-A-Tin activities in areas outside of Windhoek, speak to your local branch.
