• A Promise of Security

    MD. Moniruzzaman Khan
    Green Delta Insurance Co. Ltd.

    Although CSR has become a part of operations for a growing number of firms in Bangladesh, Green Delta Insurance Company has taken it a step further through its innovative approach. What started with the launch of the Ami Achi (“I’m here”) campaign on December 16, 2016, is now being developed into a full-scale philanthropic movement. Aligning with the Principles of the United Nations Global Compact as well as the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), Ami Achi aims to better the lives of people living below the poverty line while especially focusing on underprivileged children. Sadly, more often than not, these people are ignored, when in reality they need the most attention and care. This groundbreaking innovation of Green Delta plans to change that by working for unfortunate people and providing them with the help and guidance they deserve as human beings.  more[...]  login_required
