Established in 1957, in Bangkok, Thailand, and listed on the Stock Exchange of Thailand since 23 December 1983, TMB Bank Public Company Limited is firmly established in the banking industry. It has built its community care and outreach programme on its “Make THE Difference” philosophy.
The philosophy is centered on the thinking that the only reason for the bank’s existence is to improve the quality of life of those around it, and is derived from the belief that everyone has the power to improve lives and the world around them.
The core CSR programme from TMB, ‘FAI-FAH’, works with the young from low-income families as it is felt that they have the drive and potential, but lack financial support and proper guidance. The programme works with TMB employees volunteering to help train these youth, together with guest instructors, in a three-year curriculum on art and life skills.
The results from TMB’s learning programme has been that the youth have not only attained new skills, but have also realized their potential, improving themselves. These youth are then ready to become key catalysts in the community, creating a ripple effect via their newly ignited ideas, to start improving the world around them.
