Enhancing​ support​ of​ education​ of​ young​ Cambodians​ and​ in​ line​ with​ its​ Corporate​ Social​ Responsibility​ (CSR)​ policy,​ ABA​ Bank​ became​ a​ sponsor​ of​ two​ significant​ events​ held​ last​ weekend​ in​ Phnom​ Penh.

On​ 14​ October​ 2017,​ ABA​ supported​ the​ Orientation​ on​ Major​ Selection​ and​ Career​ Development​ organized​ by​ Japan​ International​ Cooperation​ Agency​ (JICA).​ The​ event​ took​ place​ at​ Cambodia-Japan​ Cooperation​ Center​ (CJCC).

The​ objective​ of​ the​ workshop​ is​ to​ provide​ guidance​ and​ roadmap​ to​ young​ Cambodian​ students​ and​ fresh​ graduates​ as​ major​ selection​ has​ significant​ impact​ on​ their​ career​ prospect.​ The​ workshop​ attracted​ 309​ participants​ including​ high​ school​ graduates,​ university​ students,​ first​ time​ jobbers,​ speakers,​ as​ well​ as​ representatives​ from​ JICA​ and​ Minster​ of​ Education​ of​ Youth​ and​ Sports​ (MoEYS).​

“First​ time​ jobbers​ always​ face​ issues​ to​ select​ the​ right​ career​ because​ they​ lack​ of​ right​ information​ when​ chose​ their​ major​ in​ university.​ Hence,​ this​ workshop​ is​ important​ for​ students​ to​ obtain​ information,​ experience​ and​ guidance​ from​ speakers​ for​ their​ major​ and​ career​ selection.​ This​ workshop​ also​ aligns​ with​ our​ current​ national​ education​ policy.​ We​ should​ have​ more​ workshops​ especially​ on​ the​ provincial​ level,”​ said​ H.E.​ Im​ Koch,​ Secretary​ of​ State​ for​ MoEYS.​

On​ 15​ October​ 2017,​ ABA​ became​ the​ Platinum​ sponsor​ of​ the​ 5th​ National​ Art​ Competition​ organized​ by​ Global​ Art​ Cambodia.​ The​ event​ was​ held​ at​ Himawari​ Hotel​ with​ more​ than​ 300​ kids​ along​ with​ their​ families​ joining​ a​ one-day​ competition.​ Young​ artists​ of​ 4​ –​ 18​ years​ old​ participated​ in​ the​ competition​ under​ this​ year’s​ theme​ “My​ Dream​ City”.​ Being​ a​ Platinum​ sponsor,​ ABA​ Bank​ presented​ free​ air​ tickets​ to​ the​ winners​ in​ three​ age​ categories.

“We​ are​ glad​ to​ support​ such​ initiative​ as​ it​ raises​ young​ artists’​ creativity​ and​ imagination.​ This​ competition​ in​ particular​ encourages​ young​ children​ to​ build​ up​ their​ confidence​ and​ prepares​ them​ for​ the​ next​ stage​ of​ this​ international​ competition,”​ said​ Igor​ Zimarev,​ Head​ of​ Marketing​ Division​ at​ ABA​ Bank.​

The​ competition​ was​ divided​ into​ three​ categories​ according​ to​ the​ age​ groups.​ The​ winners​ in​ each​ group​ received​ flight​ tickets,​ trophies,​ certificates,​ and​ gift​ bags,​ while​ consolation​ prizes​ were​ also​ given​ to​ the​ participants​ and​ the​ runners​ up.​

The​ Global​ Art​ Competition​ winners​ –​ Chea​ Laksmi​ (6),​ Tang​ Guech​ Chou​ (9),​ and​ VannaReth​ Thearoth​ (13)​ –​ will​ represent​ Cambodia​ in​ the​ International​ Art​ Competition​ in​ Kuala​ Lumpur​ (Malaysia)​ on​ 3​ December​ 2017​ competing​ with​ other​ children​ from​ 17​ countries.​
