Barclays employees in Uganda are taking part in a campaign this month to volunteer their time and skills.
A number of workshops are being organised to help students, young people and disadvantaged women gain the skills they need to better manage their personal and business finances.
The topics discussed include financial literacy, financial capability, entrepreneurship and healthcare.
The campaign aims to empower beneficiaries and help them become financially independent.
More than 1,200 Barclays employees in the country, as well as their family and friends, are expected to participate in the volunteering initiative.
Charles Ongwae, Barclays Uganda Managing Director, said: “Making a sustainable difference in the communities in which we live and work is at the heart of Barclays Citizenship agenda.”
Barclays Uganda ran a similar volunteering campaign last year, which saw more than 1,000 employees taking part in 160 projects.
The initiative is part of Barclays community investment programme, which engages and supports employees in giving their time and skills to their chosen community causes.
Last year, more than 62,000 of them volunteered more than 350,000 hours and raised over £18m to support disadvantaged communities around the world.
