Keystone Bank Limited in demonstrating its commitment to strengthen educational development and empowerment of Nigerian youths, has supported a 12 year old genius with $4000 to attend the young global scholars summer programme organized for outstanding high school students in the United States.
The bank responded to a written appeal by 12 year old emerging Nigerian ICT whiz kid, Oluwatomisin Jasmin Ogunubi, a student of Vivian Fowler Memorial College for girls in Lagos to partner with her in her quest to attend the programme.
Tomisin, who was recently accepted by Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut, USA, to attend the Young Global Scholars summer program organized for outstanding high school students had developed an app for tracking kids but has won numerous awards in Canada, US and United Kingdom.
Determined not to be left out of the Yale Young Global Scholars programme, Tomisin had in April 2018 written to the lender to partner with her in her quest and in swift response, Keystone Bank presented her with the sum of $4000 to attend the program slated for July.
Commenting on the development, the group managing director and chief executive of Keystone Bank Limited, Mr. Obeahon Ohiwerei, said the bank’s commitment to “exceptional services extends beyond providing banking services. It includes giving back to the communities in which we operate to make a lasting difference through our main pillars: health, education, women & youth empowerment and employee volunteer scheme.”
Represented by the chief risk officer, Tijjani Aliyu, the CEO said “as a financial institution, we make conscious efforts to empower the youths as it is our belief that they hold the future.”
Presenting the cheque to the young girl, Mr. Tijjani Aliyu, Chief Risk Officer, Keystone Bank stressed that beyond giving back to the communities for their support of the bank’s activities over the years, Keystone Bank is embarking on a deliberate effort to develop Nigerian youths and empower women through its sustainability activities.
