Al Hilal Bank, a progressive Islamic bank, highlighted the importance of reading and cultural awareness during a recent visit to Halimah School, Abu Dhabi. Bank representatives participating in Halimah School’s library week held under the theme “My Library behind My Talent”, organized various cultural events and distributed money boxes as gifts to children while encouraging them to gain more knowledge by frequenting libraries.
Halimah School held week-long activities including book fairs, cultural trips and visits to Majed magazine, and to the library of the Emirates Heritage Club. It also welcomed ‘Hala’ and ‘Nassour’, the two mascots that represent children’s banking at Al Hilal Bank, who emphasized the importance of reading. During its stay in the school, Al Hilal Bank took the opportunity to discuss the benefits of education to students and encouraged them to appreciate their cultural roots. Al Hilal Bank’s participation in the activities reflects its utmost commitment to social development and community service.
“The youth are the future and the hope of our nation, which is why Al Hilal Bank actively participates in initiatives that promote their personal and professional growth. Literacy in particular is important for national development and cultural growth, which is why we were very pleased to reach out to the students of Halimah School and encourage them to take up reading as both a hobby for enjoyment and a means for improving themselves,” Mohamed Jamil Berro, CEO of Al Hilal Bank.
