Sterling Bank Celebrates Children’s Day with IDPs in Jos

It was all smiles for children at the Internally Displayed Persons (IDPs Camp) in Jos, the Plateau State Capital, as top Management Staff of Sterling Bank Plc joined them in the celebration of the 2016 Children’s Day.
Apart from celebrating and dining with the children at the Camp, the Bank’s Management team, headed by its Executive Director, Finance and Strategy, Abubakar Sulaiman, represented by the Group Head, Strategy & Communications, Mr. Shina Atilola, also donated various food items, clothes and toys to the delight of the kids.
In other activities to mark the day, the Bank according to a statement, also hosted students from both public and private schools to a party at its corporate head office in Lagos. The Bank also donated its financial literacy books; “Funds” and “My Little Money Book’ to the Lagos State Government for onward distribution to pupils and students of the schools in a bid to promote financial literacy among the students.
Ensuring the online community were not left behind, a “selfie campaign” encouraging parents to post “selfies” taken with their children was initiated; family and friends of contestants were encouraged to vote and the top three posts were awarded prizes. A “selfie” is a photograph taken of oneself with a smartphone or webcam and shared via social media.
Speaking at the reception held for the children in Lagos, Mr. Abubakar explained that as a responsible financial institution, the Bank will continue to support any worthy initiative that would impact children positively irrespective of the financial institutions the kids or parents bank with.
At the IDP camp, the Bank’s Director stated that the kids were a product of circumstance. He therefore called on all to support these ones to ensure their dream of a bright future can become reality.
The Bank’s Director who noted that the future of the country can only be guaranteed when “we invest rightly in our children as future leaders“,  explained that the Bank will continue to commit resources towards supporting the value adding activities especially those focused on education and the learning of our children.
“At Sterling Bank, we are passionate about avenues that would add value for learning in all areas and that is why we are investing heavily in the area of education. Till date, we have introduced a number of initiatives that provide solutions to the challenges confronting the sector,” he said.
