Give in to giving

At Emirates NBD, we sincerely believe that altruism is deeply rooted in human nature.

Volunteering for a cause, big or small, fulfills our instinct to help, share and get involved. It is never too early, or too late to become a volunteer and make a positive impact.

We also believe that sustained momentum and passion is key to making a difference.

Why volunteer?

Besides the enormous impact it makes for the community at large, volunteering is the gift that keeps on giving – most volunteers will confess that getting involved gives them a sense of deep purpose and peace.

Here are some reasons you should consider volunteering:

It can lead to new hobbies and friends
It helps beat stress, anger, anxiety and depression
It gives you a sense of purpose
It helps strengthen your confidence and social skills
It builds transferable skills and experience
It builds family bonds and values when you get everyone involved
It can be fun and a welcome break from routine
For students, it counts as valuable points for college

Praveen's Exchanger story

"The most inspiring volunteering event for me was ‘Clean Up UAE’ as I feel that environmentally responsible behavior is an essential part of our philosophy and I hope more such activities will be organized to spread environmental awareness."
