BankDhofar recently supported a cultural event held at the Bahr Al Arab School in Duqm as part of its continuous endeavours to aid and encourage the investment in the community. The event was held under the patronage of H.E. Sheik Mohsin Bin Hamed Al Maskri, Wali of Duqm and drew participation from other attending dignitaries including officials from BankDhofar.
As a staunch advocate of community development and CSR related activities, BankDhofar’s support of the event also gave much-needed fillip to Omani culture and local talent. “Our role as a leader in CSR initiatives is to extend support to such events that help showcase and preserve Omani heritage. Events such as these are crucial to teaching future generations the rich traditions of our culture,” said Ahmed Said Al Ibrahim, DGM Government Banking & Branding atBankDhofar. The event celebrated an evening of traditional entertainment through a series of camel shows, Taghroud shows, dance and poetry recitations. Students performed traditional dances such as Razha and Baraa, unique to Oman.
H.E. Salam Bin Sakat Al Janibi, member of the Shura Council and chief of the event’s organisation committee lauded efforts and cooperation of the Directorate of Education in making the whole evening a success.
For BankDhofar, the event reflected its five-year strategy to develop sustainable CSR measures in support of local communities including traditional Omani art, culture and heritage. To this end the bank has been launching several initiatives in various fields across different regions in the Sultanate, steadily and successfully.
