In collaboration with 5th Chukker, The Access Bank UK and Access Private Bank, the 10th annual Access Bank Polo Day event held at the Guards Polo Club, Windsor on Saturday, July 15th as part of the bank’s continued support of UNICEF’s Charity Shield Polo tournament.
Since the UNICEF/Access Bank initiative was started in 2007 it has seen the rebuilding of two schools in Kaduna and more than 8,000 students sustained in continuous education, at the same time developing new school blocks and a computer literacy building all in a more secure and friendly school environment. The communities surrounding the schools are being supported with boreholes for water, and sewing and grinding machines to secure employment and stimulate economic and social development.
Access Bank PLC group managing director and chairman of The Access Bank UK Ltd, Herbert Wigwe explained the reasons behind the Bank’s continued support for the Fifth Chukker UNICEF initiative. He says that the bank is aware of its role as change agent in Nigeria, and as a result, they intend to keep supporting the growth and well-being of the community.
