At uab, our three fundamental values _ Connect, Create and Change are part of everything we do. The First Step in making the world a better place is helping others. It helps to create stronger communities that are concerned with the well-being of each and every individual as we work towards a happier society for all.
Launched in December 2017, the Be The Change Myanmar initiative is an exciting project by uab bank.
This project aims to fulfill and change children’s wishes to reality. Our mission is to create experience and empowerment for children to enrich the aspiration, potential and joyfulness by giving them the items or wishes they want during Christmas. Embracing their imagination is what allows our wish kids to think big and think about the future. And we aim to grant more wishes of the children in need across Myanmar as our value is Connect, Create and Change for the society.Wishes of 400 children in Yangon was granted through #bethechangemm in December 2017.
In December 2018, uab bank through its “Be The Change” program commmitted to reach out to under-privileged children with 1000 gifts. Through our ground surveys,uab bank volunteers found many working children at the Shwe Gant Gaw Teashop area and Yangon Railway Station and they asked for mobile phones so that they could be in touch with their families and close ones. Others asked for bags, clothes and other presents.
Over February 2019, we were able to deliver gifts (mainly low-cost key phone sets) to 60 children in the targed areas
We thank particularly uab staffs and other donors who had donated generously towards these gifts. This utreach was facilitated through myMe,an organization dedicated to assisting child labourers through the provision of mobile class-rooms.We are particularly grateful to Daw Swe Zin Htaik from myMe for guiding us and our sincere wish is for the children to be motivated to study hard and attend classes particularly the mobile classrooms.
The experience has been an eye-opener for many of us at uab bank the purpose of the “Be The Change Myanmar” program is to encourage partnership between the bank, its emmployees, business and community partners in together making a difference.
