Education is an important ingredient for building a smarter nation and it becomes more special when the doors are open to people that need it the most. Bank Islam Brunei Darussalam helps do this through their CSR program by its community-funded education fund, ALAF (Advocating Life-Long Learning for an Aspiring Future).
ALAF lends a helping hand to underprivileged and orphaned students, by supporting them through education all the way to graduation. The funds behind it all are raised on an annual basis with donations made using BIBD channels like ATM, online and cash deposit machines.
At the same time, ALAF also helps with Brunei’s plans to have well-educated people that have a high-skill set. The program also hopes to support the vision of His Majesty Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah Mu’izzaddin Waddaulah, the Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam, for zero illiteracy and poverty by 2035.
