Barwa Bank has announced that it will be the main sponsor of the 32nd GCC Traffic Week, which takes place in Doha from today until March 19.
Sponsoring the 2016 edition of the GCC Traffic Week is part of Barwa Bank’s corporate social responsibility, a core element of the bank’s brand, and plays an effective role in educating and developing Qatar’s youth – to whom it offers opportunities for learning, growth and development, according to a statement.
The GCC Traffic Week is a region-wide initiative to raise awareness about traffic safety issues among the public in an effort to make the region’s roads safer for all users. This is done by educating motorists, especially young drivers, about the risks of reckless road habits as well as by instilling a traffic safety culture in children and youngsters’ minds.
In Qatar, the Traffic Week will be held at Darb Al Saai, where a large number of State authorities, institutions and firms will host a slew of activities and events aimed at raising awareness regarding important traffic and road safety issues, as well as educating younger generations about proper road manners and critical safety measures.
The events and activities include plays, introductory seminars, interactive computer simulations and a miniature traffic village for children.
Khalid Yousef al-Subeai, acting GCEO of Barwa Bank Group, said: “Barwa Bank constantly strives to make a positive impact on the community through its numerous contributions,
initiatives and sponsorships.
“Today, we are proud to be the main sponsor of the 32nd GCC Traffic Week and look forward to being a part of raising traffic safety awareness among all segments of society, especially youngsters and children, in harmony with the Qatar National Vision 2030 pillar of developing a just and caring society based on high moral standards, and one that is capable of playing a significant role in global partnerships for development.”
