M. Segun Agbaje CEO Guaranty Trust Bank
For us at GTBank, our commitment to giving back runs just as deep as our passion for creating value, and it’s driven by our strong belief that building a strong business and making the world a better place are essential ingredients for long-term success.”
At Guaranty Trust Bank, beyond providing first-class service, we place great importance on the role we play in our host communities. We have made corporate social responsibility an integrated part of our business model by means of a clearly defined CSR strategy that focuses on championing causes and initiatives that transform lives and uplift our communities.
Over the years, we have funded programmes that increase access to quality education, advocated for people living with autism spectrum disorders (ASD), promoted cultural exchanges that break down societal barriers and played an active role in safeguarding the environment.
Working with the Swiss Red Cross, we have also provided support for children suffering from famine in South Sudan, funds for Doctors without Borders during the ebola epidemic in West Africa, and shelter for millions of displaced people around the world whose homes have been torn apart by violent crises.
Ultimately, we know that the true impact of our business is also reflected in our role in the communities where we operate, and we continue to work with reputable organizations that share our core values, such as the Swiss Red Cross, to offer much needed assistance to communities in Africa and elsewhere.
