The Deutsche Bank Middle East Foundation
Deutsche Bank’s Middle East Foundation was established in November 2008. It is part of the Bank’s family of foundations in Asia, Africa and the Americas. In addition, Deutsche Bank has active Corporate Citizenship programs across Europe and the UK.
Deutsche Bank’s Middle East Foundation focuses on funding investments in education, early-stage enterprise, community development, sustainability and volunteering in the Middle East and North Africa region.
Deutsche Bank’s Middle East Foundation has supported many regional and local NGO projects and initiatives to build social capital by creating opportunities, fostering talent and ensuring long-term viability in the region such as: ChoirFest Middle East and the Rashid Centre for People of Determination in the United Arab Emirates; the Palestine Association for Children’s Encouragement of Sport in the Levant region; the Jinnah Hospital and ChildLife Foundation in Pakistan, the Disabled Children’s Association in Saudi Arabia and the American University in Cairo (AUC) and Abassia Hospital in Egypt.
In addition, Deutsche Bank’s Middle East Foundation works closely with international organisations such as the United Nations Relief Works Agency (UNRWA) in Palestine and Sightsavers in Pakistan in support of their regional programs to improve the lives of the underprivileged, to pave ways to a better future and to respond to major humanitarian disasters.
