Arab Bank Australia partner with the Bulldogs to support the Community Minded Kids Program

The Bulldogs have partnered with Arab Bank Australia and the Canterbury League Club to continue its support of a game changing program ‘Community Minded Kids’, that teaches children about community building and participation and empowers them to collaborate in citizen-driven community efforts.

As a club that sits within the heartland of diversity, the Bulldogs understand the importance of inclusion and all programs that help raise awareness of the need for a cohesive society.

Bulldogs Chief Executive, Aaron Warburton, recognised the importance of the program.

“We are very proud to have partnered with Community Minds since 2018. They are a local organisation from Bankstown that have inspired community action around the world.

Having Arab Bank Australia as a partner is also tremendous news as they have a long history of supporting these type of initiatives and it means that we can work together to help educate the children in our schools that they really can make a difference.”

Arab Bank Australia (ABAL Banking) is very proud of its corporate responsibility initiatives and its support in this area that has spanned over two decades.  Managing Director and CEO Joe Rizk AM believes in focusing on the youth for all partnerships.

“At ABAL Banking we have a strong focus on supporting the Arts, Music, Health, Medical Research and Sports.  For each of these we look at initiatives with our partners that focus on Youth, Our Children and Our Future.

Our support of the Bulldogs in 2022 is focused on their affiliation with the Community Minded Kids initiative, we are very proud to be associated with like-minded brands with a key focus of supporting, empowering and continuing to cultivate the ambitions, skills and talent of youth in our communities.”

Community Minds, CEO Zizi Charida further highlights the partnerships impact.

“Our partnership with Canterbury Bankstown Bulldogs is growing and further developing the Community Minded Kids program has allowed primary schools, including schools that cater for students with special needs/disability across Canterbury Bankstown to access this innovative community building program.

With more schools accessing this program we can further strengthen our efforts in cultivating a generation that thinks ‘we’ not ‘me’."
