In Bangladesh, Impact Day has been our annual tradition of volunteering since 2019. Keeping with the unique times, on 28 November 2021, Deloitte Bangladesh volunteered towards improving life skills and awareness about global issues to make youths from underserved communities to be better prepared for tomorrow, virtually.
We have always been a purpose-driven organisation, which believes that we cannot thrive in isolation. Impact Day is a year-round celebration of Deloitte’s commitment to local communities. Member firms around the world host Impact Day activities where Deloitte professionals spend the day volunteering. Impact Day is an opportunity for Deloitte people to put our passion, determination, and skills to use for the benefit of communities in which we operate, as well as for the planet.
Volunteers from Deloitte Bangladesh volunteered towards contributing to the upliftment of young minds from SOS Children's Village International in Bangladesh.
We organised a session for the co-workers who mentor and take care of the youths at SOS Bangladesh. Our emphasis was to make them aware of how they could focus on the youths’ personal growth aspects like punctuality, finding the unique quality of individuals, having the bravery to say NO to wrong doings, nurturing positive values, etc. We also showed a few video clips to keep them aware of the modern world’s thinking for youths and the importance of teamwork. Our effort was to make this group familiar with the trending culture of dealing with teens.
