What It Means To KFH MALAYSIA

CSR for Community matters to the local communities, who want to know that they are living amongst organisations that share their values and concerns. It matters to the localities to know that KFH Malaysia provides opportunities on entrepreneurship, skills development, life-long learning and employability and strives towards poverty reduction.

 

CSR at Marketplace matters because it mirrors the core values of the society in which we wish to live. It matters to individual companies, big or small, who, through innovative products and services, can improve their economic, environmental and social performance. It matters to our clients, customers and partners who are paying more and more attention to the social and environmental credentials of the products and services KFH Malaysia offers.

 

CSR at Workplace matters to those who work in and for KFH Malaysia, to exercise their role in society through volunteerism and can help to create a more rewarding and inspiring working environment.

 

CSR for Environment matters to our children and future generations who expect to live in a world which respects people and nature.

 

The overarching principle which KFH Malaysia adopts for its CSR undertakings is the Islamic values. As we comply with the Shariah principles in our business operations, the same tenets require us to carry a higher calling of spreading the knowledge of Islamic banking and finance and to be at the forefront in spreading the virtues and knowledge of Islam in the areas where we operate.

 

Led by its Chief Executive Office and the senior management team, KFH Malaysia has implemented various programmes and activities which include assisting the underprivileged community and natural disaster victims, enriching universities and school students on Islamic banking knowledge; providing basic business skills for the low income group; providing aids and facilities to Islamic religious schools and related Islamic activities; contribution to Tabung Haji hajj pilgrims; treeplanting as well as staff volunteerism in the local community.

Finally, we seek Allah Almighty to bless the journey that made KFH Malaysia a leading example in serving its society and country as a business entity. We intend for all our efforts and initiatives to pave the ways for others to emulate and copy, to help reconcile the economic, social and environmental ambitions for the country.
