KataKatha
ASEAN

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.

A bookcase with nearly 1,000 books given by volunteers was also donated and the road leading up to the school was paved.

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.
