Building a school in Nepal
We are passionate about creating educational opportunities so, to mark our 25th year, we funded the building of a new school in Nepal by the United World Schools charity. Children at the hard-to-reach village previously had a two-hour walk to reach the nearest school.
The UWS Meringden School provides a vital education centre in an area damaged by the 2015 earthquake. Nepal’s literacy rate is among the lowest in the world and only a small minority of girls attend school. The building of the UWS School was severely delayed by COVID-19 so we were delighted to hear that the school was completed in the autumn of 2021 and took in its first children in October 2021. The school has capacity for 140 children and we plan to visit the school sometime during 2022. Clients interested in being involved in supporting the school are very welcome to join us.
ResourceBank actively promotes ‘giving back’ by supporting our ‘Social and Charity Committee’, made up of dedicated employees who are responsible for ensuring the Company actively participates in local, national and international fundraising activities.
We are proud to support the community and offer employees paid time off for Charity work.
Some of the Charities we supported last year were; Action Medical Research, Shropshire Youth Trust, Cancer Research, British Heart Foundation, Save the Children, Go Kidz Go and Newport Rugby Club.
We believe that the success of a business depends on people. ResourceBank’s approach is based on capitalising on what is unique about individuals and recognising that people from different backgrounds, perspectives and experiences will enhance and add value to the way we and our clients, do business.
ResourceBank maintains a zero-tolerance position on violations of anti-human trafficking and anti-modern slavery laws.
