Standard Bank Malawi invests in Global Fund to help fight dreaded diseases

Standard Bank Malawi is working closely with The Global Fund, an international organisation dedicated to eliminating the epidemics of AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria across Africa.

The bank manages the accounts for Action Aid and World Vision International, the Fund’s two principal recipients and partners in the country.

As part of the collaboration, the bank recently funded a training programme in financial management for 31 participants from Action Aid. A similar training will be implemented for Malawi’s health ministry in December.

Africa's Mobile banking revolution is here

People the world over are choosing digital as a more efficient, convenient solution for their banking needs, enabling them to bank on their terms. As a direct result, we’ve seen our mobile traffic grow by 100% a year, in-branch transactions decline and ATM usage now makes up less than 5% of total banking transactions. Digital is clearly the present and future.

Bringing Colourful Learning to Classrooms

We recently painted five classrooms in Blantyre under the project Happy classrooms. This was done in celebration of 47 years of banking in Malawi. As a Malawian bank, we are committed to supporting the communities in which we operate. Our staff were more than happy to get involved in painting the classrooms.

This was done in collaboration with boNGO Worldwide International, a non-profit non-governmental organization established in 2007 with the aim of raising the standards of education in Malawi. You may read more on http://www.bongoworldwide.org.
