Nuku District School has received a significant boost to its facilities, thanks to a community project by BSP's Nausori Branch. The project involved the construction of roofing over the walkway areas from the classrooms to the washrooms and school canteen, repairs and maintenance of the washrooms, upgrade of the drinking station including the installation of 20 taps.
The project was identified and implemented in consultation with the school and the Ministry of Education and was completed through a collaborative effort between the bank, the school and the community. BSP invested funds and staff volunteered their time and "sweat equity" to create a better school experience.
"Our corporate value of Community & Vanua is the driving force behind these projects and we actively demonstrate our commitment to the community through our many Branch Community Projects and Sponsorships. Giving back to Fiji is part of 'Who We Are,' and we are proud to be a part of a team that cares so deeply about the communities we serve. These collaborative efforts demonstrate who we are as a bank and as a team," said BSP Relieving Country Head, Maikash Ali.
The project was completed over three Saturdays with no less than 10 people working on each of the days. The bank acknowledges the guidance of a specialized contractor and foreman who assisted the staff in carrying out this construction project.
Mr Ali reaffirmed BSP’s strong commitment to upholding its corporate social responsibility through the Branch Community Project program, sponsorship and community partnerships that nurture positive change to improve the quality of life for communities.
“The successful completion of this project is a testament to the bank's commitment to Community & Vanua. Our Branch Community Projects continue to be driven by our corporate values and proudly supported by our staff volunteers who share our commitment to giving back to Fiji”, he added.
As the largest banking network in Fiji delivering essential financial services throughout Fiji, including remote regions, BSP has also reinvested over $10 million in Fiji since 2010 through Community Projects and sponsorships that support educational, environmental, sporting, and charitable programs.
