Standard Chartered Bank
Standard Chartered Bank has been RizScholars’ banker since our inception. In 2008, SCB launched its “Help Educate Pakistan” campaign and began to search for credible organizations across the country whose purpose would align well with the program’s objectives and whose performance in terms of governance, program delivery and financial management was of the highest standard and well documented. Thus, SCB selected 3 highly credible not-for-profit organizations involved in education, one of them being RizScholars. We are grateful to SCB for including us in the Help Educate Pakistan program which finances some of our efforts towards scholarships for deserving students. Through this program, we initiated a campaign to select candidates from violence stricken areas such as Swat, Dir, Matta etc. We report the progress of our SCB Scholars on a regular basis to SCB and hope to continue our collaboration with SCB for years to come.
