Ecobank employees and management in each of the pan-African bank’s 33 affiliate countries have again displayed their social conscience, care and commitment to the local communities in which they operate by giving up their free time for a day to volunteer and fundraise. Saturday, November 17th was the sixth annual Ecobank Day, an internal initiative where Ecobank’s employees turn their attention away from servicing customers’ financial needs and towards showing compassion and care for the welfare of their local community. Each year the activities are devoted to a specific theme and this year the focus was on ‘Support for Orphanages in Africa.’

Ade Ayeyemi, Group CEO, Ecobank said Ecobank Day demonstrates the strong culture of the bank: “Many of the orphanages in Africa are underfunded and under-resourced and they deserve all the support that they can get so it was an easy decision to make them the beneficiaries of this year’s Ecobank Day. I was humbled by the eager willingness to volunteer, the hard work and the much evident compassion of all at Ecobank in helping such a worthy cause and making a real difference.”
