As important as helping build a healthy, productive society is to Al khaliji’s community development goals, extending a helping hand to the underprivileged and those in need always comes first in the Bank’s CSR program. This year, Al khaliji extended its support to IHSAN Center, one of Qatar Foundation for Social Work (QFSW) affiliated Centers that seeks to empower the elderly and promote solidarity between generations. An integral component of Al Khaliji’s corporate social responsibility purpose over the years has been the buildup and empowerment of a local pool of talents that can lead and shape the next transformative era for the State of Qatar. To this end, Al Khaliji has mapped out a strategic course of action fostering an environment of creativity, entrepreneurial and educational latitude for the national workforce both inside its organization and among members of the Qatari community at large.
