Maybank Kim Eng believes that it takes more than economic growth to build a community. For ASEAN to grow, the community needs arts and culture to infuse it with identity, soul and imagination, and to encourage diversity in thinking.
We also believe that the region’s economic integration can only be fully achieved with social integration of its people. The key to ASEAN’s social integration lies in our commonalities derived from our shared history and culture.
That is why the Katakatha initiative was created. A truly ambitious project, we aspire to make KataKatha the platform to explore and enhance the appreciation of ASEAN’s commonalities through arts and culture. Through KataKatha, we also hope to promote the region’s rich arts and culture, with the aim of perpetuating its development while retaining its originality and uniqueness. We believe in investing in the region’s arts and culture.

The Twisting Machine was a result of a successful fund raising exercise that spanned all branches as well as our head office. More than IDR20 million was collected, which covered half of the price of the Twisting Machine. The company sponsored the remainder of the price.
In addition to donating the machine, a coloring contest was held for the village children. The aim of which was to give them the opportunity to exercise their creativity through art and to give employees the chance to bond with them. From three different local playgroups, there were four winners who walked away with educational toys and all students were given goodie bags.
Certificates were awarded to the children who completed the workshops, presentations were given by the hearing-impaired children and their compositions were read. In addition, volunteers danced to the Maybank Song while communicating the lyrics through sign language. A Maybank ATR Kim Eng officer acted as interpreter throughout the event.
Following the graduation programme was Family Day - a fair-like event with games and food booths sponsored, set up and manned by the volunteers. An air bouncer, photo booth and balloon sculpting were just some of the activities available on that fun-filled day. At the end of the festivities, the beneficiaries, their guardians, and family members went home with sponsored grocery items.
Leading up to the day, a fundraising exercise was conducted. Through donations and coupon sales, Maybank Kim Eng managed to raise SGD18,000.
On 27 September 2014, staff members from Maybank Kim Eng Vietnam took a two-hour car ride from Ho Chi Minh City to Thanh Phu Elementary School in Long An province. There, the group helped to fix and upgrade the school and to top it all off, 30 scholarships for underprivileged students, valued at VND500,000 each, were awarded. A bookcase with nearly 1,000 books given by volunteers was also donated and the road leading up to the school was paved.
Together with the Head office, three more branches namely Hanoi, Dong Nai and Vung Tau, also organised activities to support their communities. The Hanoi branch helped improve a kindergarten's water system while the Dong Nai and Vung Tau branches concentrated their efforts on disadvantaged children and the elderly.
