Providing Safe Water

The Hongkong and Shanghai Banking Corporation Limited (HSBC)

HSBC is determined to support the people of Bangladesh mainly by providing safe water. The bank is operating the ‘HSBC Water Programme’ with a partnership with Earthwatch, WaterAir, and WWF. The program focuses on providing safe drinking water and improving sanitation and hygiene awareness among school-going children. For the first 5 years (2012-2016), the bank has invested USD100 million and for the extended 3 years (2017-2019) of the program, the bank has invested USD50 million. 

Besides, HSBC co-sponsors an annual competition celebrating Bangla language in a partnership with Prothom Alo since 2005. Each year, more than 140,000 students take part in the competition. Also, the bank works with local charity/voluntary groups with a view to bringing disadvantaged children into education.
