The Complete Banker Consultation 

March 12, 2012. The Complete Banker (TCB) is a personal development initiative targeted at young and talented individuals, providing them with a comprehensive set of banking skills and knowledge required to make them competent CIMB Niaga ASEAN-oriented management trainees.

CIMB Niaga 2012 Scholarship Program Consultation and Road shows 

Mere distribution of scholarship funds is not what CIMB Niaga aims for; it opts to establish closer ties with its scholars, promoting a greater sense of ownership of CIMB Niaga's Scholarship Program among beneficiaries.

An effective way to realize this is by scheduling consultation sessions for the program participants. Following successful events in Jakarta and Bogor, similar sessions were held in six other major cities -- Bandung, Semarang, Yogyakarta, Surabaya, Malang and Medan -- between April 9 and 13, 2012. CIMB Niaga and the Ministry of Education and Culture of the Republic of Indonesia took scholars to meet representatives from partner universities: Universitas Padjajaran, Institut Teknologi Bandung, Universitas Diponegoro, Universitas Gadjah Mada, Institut Teknologi Sepuluh Nopember and Universitas Sumatera Utara. In these meetings, the organizing team introduced CIMB Niaga's Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives for 2012, and sought to establish and maintain good relationships with the tertiary education partners, a key stakeholder of CIMB Niaga. 

The consultation sessions and visits made part of CIMB Niaga's effort to achieve its vision of Building Lifetime Relationships -- maintaining sustainable ties among CIMB Niaga, its scholars, the Ministry of Education & Culture and the universities selected as partners for the administering of the bank's CSR programs.


"Assessment Camp" - Khazanah Asia Scholarship Program 2012

Under their current scholarship program, CIMB Niaga and Khazanah Foundation jointly offered Indonesian students the opportunity to further their higher education at selected universities in Malaysia and get their master's degrees. As part of the program, an Assessment Camp -- stage two of the Khazanah Asia 2012 Scholarship selection process -- was held from May 23 to 28 at Jakarta's Crowne Plaza Hotel. As many as 13 candidates enthusiastically partook a series of psychological tests, working group discussions and interviews to see if they would qualify for the next phase of the process. In a final interview, each candidate was required to deliver the best possible answers and arguments before two directors: Ms. L. Wulan Tumbelaka, CIMB Niaga's Compliance, Corporate Affairs and Legal Director, and Tan Sri Dato' Azman Hashim, Managing Director of Khazanah Nasional Berhad. 

"It gives me great pride to be here among other candidates for the Khazanah Asia Scholarship Program. This is such a rare opportunity, and I'm grateful I was shortlisted for the Assessment Camp in a series of selection processes before the most qualified would be announced as program scholars. The camp taught me many things: leadership, teamwork, interpersonal skills and integrity. I got to meet other candidates of different backgrounds. We studied together and had to compete against each other to win the scholarships but could still keep our spirit of comradeship intact," said a program candidate, Absa Pradista.

English Course For Scholars

June 2, 2012 "Success lies in the preparation; without one, failure is guaranteed." The maxim applies to scholarship beneficiaries taking part in CIMB Niaga's The Complete Banker (TCB) selection stage. TCB is a management training initiative that requires candidates to be fully prepared with a focus on mastery of both verbal and written English language skills. As a regional bank, CIMB Niaga needs future leaders with comprehensive knowledge of banking and the ability to use English well. 

Taking place at the Manggarai branch of AIM for English, on Saturday, June 2, 2012, CIMB Niaga officially started its IELTS Preparation and Business Conversation classes for its scholars. The IELTS Preparation course aims at equipping participants with the necessary knowledge to help them qualify for TCB which requires a minimum IELTS score of 6.00, while the Business Conversation Class prepares them for making good business presentations and passing interview tests. It was expected that by taking these classes, many scholars could take part in TCB's selection stages without difficulties and eventually manage to make it to the list of the program's participants. CIMB Niaga's Scholarship Program has the commitment of taking beneficiaries in the right direction to come up with the best results.

In an effort to widely publicize its programs, CIMB Niaga took part as sponsor partner in the Creative Economy Gathering held at BCFF Purnawarman on October 5, 2012. The event invited young entrepreneurs in Bandung to share their experience and ideas on the businesses they are engaged in. Being a sponsoring partner, CIMB Niaga saw the event as a chance to introduce its featured BUTIK, a program offering scholarships to any entrepreneur who is at least a fifth-semester college students and has been running an active enterprise for at least 6 months.

Educational Aid for "Sekolah Darurat Kartini"

August 13, 2012. Every citizen has the right to education as stipulated in Article 31 Paragraph 1 of the 1945 Constitution. Education makes up the foundation of the nation, and helps the people to gain higher status. Unfortunately, good education is not something that children of the Sekolah Darurat Kartini (Kartini Temporary School), an establishment set up under Ancol's Lodan Raya overpass, can fully enjoy. 

Concerned with the school's operations, CIMB Niaga donated uniforms and learning & teaching facilities including globe replicas and Indonesian wall maps with a total value of Rp 22,000,000.

Rumah Baca Harapan - Maros, Makassar

Rumah Baca Harapan in Maros, Makassar, is a home of learning that brings hope to those under its wing. It allows them to study and shape their hopes and dreams, empowering them to fulfill these hopes and reach the dreams with hard work. The distant location cannot keep them from coming to this place to study; it will not put out their passion for learning. 

The center is a result of a project initiated by members of the association of graduates and beneficiaries of CIMB Niaga scholarship program -- Ikatan Alumni Penerima Beasiswa CIMB Niaga (IAPB). Its purpose is to prepare Indonesian young generations who are keen on learning to embrace progress and development. On December 22, 2012, a team from CIMB Niaga's Program Sejuta Buku (A Million Book program) made a visit to Rumah Baca Harapan to donate books and share knowledge, happiness and motivation with those from remote regions, and help to boost their pride and self-respect so that one day they would become individuals of great achievements to benefit the nation.

A total of Rp 10 million was awarded to 10 selected beneficiaries. When these children grow up and have their own money, they are be expected to become individuals who would willingly set aside a small portion of what they make to be given to their peers who are less fortunate.

AMDB Program Introduced at CIMB Niaga Indonesian Masters Charity Gala Dinner

CIMB Niaga, the title sponsor of an international golf tournament, CIMB Niaga Indonesian Masters 2012, is committed to consistently promote the empowerment of people through its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programs. An opportunity to help the cause came when the CIMB Niaga Indonesian Masters 2012 Charity Gala Dinner was held on Tuesday, April 17, 2012, at the Four Seasons Hotel Jakarta -- it was time to combine the spirit of golf and the concern for disadvantaged people for the best interests of all. 

As a result, the money raised at the Gala Dinner made possible for CIMB Niaga and its partner, Habitat for Humanity, to construct fourteen (14) more houses for low-income families in Indonesia. The program confirmed a larger number of units to be built: last year's event managed to raise funds for 11 homes -- an achievement to be proud of.

CIMB Niaga also set up a booth where its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) projects were communicated to the gala invited guests with emphasis on the 'Ayo Menabung dan Berbagi' program. The bank managed to raise a total of Rp 700,000 to be later deposited in its 'Ayo Menabung dan Berbagi' special account. Future disbursements of the fund will be for initiatives to promote the education and character building of the children of Indonesia. 


CIMB Niaga Opens CSR Booth at National Bowling Interbank Championship

 No matter who we are, where we come from, and when and where we live now, sharing will always be the best thing to do to help those who are less fortunate than us. It was exactly this that CIMB Niaga did when it organized the National Bowling Interbank Championship at Jaya Ancol Bowling Center in Jakarta, on June 2-3, where bowlers from 17 banks in Indonesia competed for a title. The bank's CSR team encouraged spectators of the games to share what they have for the needy. 

And it has always been this spirit that keeps members of the team going and raising funds wherever and whenever they can through the 'Ayo Menabung dan Berbagi' initiative. In two days of the event, the team managed to collect Rp 685,000, making the total of fund deposited in the 'Ayo Menabung dan Berbagi' account come to a handsome Rp 86,180,501 (eighty six million one hundred eighty thousand five hundred and one rupiah). May the spirit of sharing be always in us for one single purpose: reaching out and benefitting as many people as possible in Indonesia.

AMDB invited IBEX 2012 visitors to contribute to a fund-raising initiative. The other program, Community Link, presented three of CIMB Niaga-supported charity partners: Rumah Gemilang Indonesia, Wangsa Jelita and Yayasan Cinta Anak Bangsa. At the banking event, the team collected a total of Rp 1,033,500, bringing the AMDB account balance up to Rp 98,407,001. 

On Sunday, July 1, 2012, the final day of IBEX 2012, CIMB Niaga scheduled a talk show on "CIMB Niaga Scholarship Scheme". Moderated by Mr. Gatot Subagio, Corporate Communications Head, the show featured the following speakers: Ms. L. Wulan Tumbelaka, Compliance, Corporate Affairs and Legal Director; Mr. Ananto Kusuma Seta, Head of Planning and International Cooperation Bureau of the Indonesian Ministry of Education and Culture; and Filzah Hanum Syazwina, a CIMB Niaga scholarship beneficiary and a student of Institut Pertanian Bogor.


AMDB Program 2012 Re-Launched

July 25, 2012. Another event in the 'Ayo Menabung dan Berbagi' series was held by CIMB Niaga in 2012. At Yasporbi primary school in Pancoran, South Jakarta, the CSR team organized a number of related activities including the Kit for Kids and a talkshow, presenting local bloggers and public figures who have concerns for children's education: Ratih Ibrahim, Ainun Chomsun (Akademi Berbagi), Ida Amal (Indonesia Berkebun) and Dik Doank. Speakers at the show shared the same message, i.e. the importance of saving and sharing in shaping socially-conscious characters.  

L. Wulan Tumbelaka, Compliance, Corporate Affairs & Legal Director of CIMB Niaga, said that the program reflected her company's commitment to consistently assume its corporate social responsibilities, particularly in the promotion of education. This is the second year of the organization of the project; the first ended in December 2011.

CIMB Niaga's 'Ayo Menabung dan Berbagi' was also in line with a program by Bank Indonesia (BI), i.e. Hari RaBu (short for Hari Rajin Menabung -- Save Money Every Day), an initiative to promote the 'save money' movement among the public. Active participation of the banking industry is expected to bring people closer to banks and encourage them to save more money. 

Concluding the AMDB relaunch, door prizes were drawn and tanjung tree seedlings handed over to the management of SD Yasporbi for later planting. The greening initiative symbolized CIMB Niaga's commitment to benefit people through education.


Learn and Play With Kit for Kids

July 25, 2012. Every child, without exception, has the right to play and learn, and the Indonesian government has the obligation to provide spaces for Indonesian children to create, play, socialize and learn through all media and facilities available. A school functions as a second home for children and a medium or facility where positive character qualities are taught, shaping them to be intelligent individuals who are prepared to serve their country well. And CIMB Niaga realizes that a place suitable for imparting values to children is an institution we call school.  

Wednesday, July 25, 2012, was the day picked by CIMB Niaga to get the children at SD Yasporbi Jakarta to learn great values through the Kit for Kids initiative in the 2012 'Ayo Menabung dan Berbagi' campaign series. The young ones were involved in a story-telling session aimed at making them aware of the importance of saving and sharing at school. They were then taken to a prepared site where they could play with plants and soil in a joint tree-planting activity. Around 200 fourth, fifth and sixth graders enthusiastically take part in all steps of the Kit for Kids session.

CIMB Niaga expected the Kit for Kids program to help children to realize the positive values of saving and sharing, and apply what they have learned in their daily routines - at school, at home and in the society.  


 Kit For Kids at 7 Primary Schools In Greater Jakarta Region 

July 25 - September 10, 2012. Following the relaunch of the 'Ayo Menabung dan Berbagi' for 2012 featuring a Talkshow and Kit for Kids at SD Yasporbi in Pancoran, CIMB Niaga scheduled another Kit for Kids to take place at 7 primary schools in the Greater Jakarta region: SDK Penabur Kelapa Gading, SDK Penabur Kota Modern Tangerang, SD Tarakanita 3 Kebayoran Lama, SD Tarakanita 5 Rawamangun, SD Mentari International Bintaro, SD Global Prestasi School Bekasi and SD Victory Plus.

With an agenda similar to last year's, Kit for Kids took around 150 children from each school to play an active role in the story-telling, tree-planting and fund-raising sessions. They managed to gather hundreds of used but still wearable clothing items and books, and raised some money. The collected clothes, books and money were then symbolically handed by a pair on behalf of the group, accompanied by a teacher, to CIMB Niaga representatives. 

As a way of showing that it also cares for the environment, CIMB Niaga donated to each school tree seedlings. The children were expected to nurture the young plants to grow into strong and big shady trees to contribute to their school's green environments.


Kit for Kids 2012 Bandung Campaign

September 27, 2012. As the previous 2012 campaigns for the Jabotabek regions proved to be successful, another round of Kit for Kids was planned in two primary schools in Bandung -- SD Yos Sudarso and SD Al Azhar 30 Bandung. Both schools' administrators and teachers and hundreds of schoolchildren enthusiastically welcomed the team from CIMB Niaga. 

The visits took place on Thursday, September 27, 2012. The first on the list was SD Yos Sudarso; around 150 pupils and their teachers were very happy to get their hands on the Kits for Kids and start planting trees. When the work at SD Yos Sudarso was done, the team went to SD Al Azhar 30 Bandung to find 183 schoolboys and schoolgirls impatiently waiting to enjoy the day together. In the story-telling session, the children were invited to take part in a treasure hunt role play where they learned about the concept of saving and sharing. Afterwards they joined the team for a tree-planting session. Students ready for work wearing aprons offered a different and refreshing sight.

During the fund-raising parts of the Bandung visits, CIMB Niaga collected a total of Rp 1,542,000. We thank you all, big-hearted boys and girls... we will use the money to help other children who are less fortunate than us. Let's keep saving and sharing. 


Fund-Raising at University Of Indonesia

CIMB Niaga's Kit for Kids initiative in the series of the 'Ayo Menabung dan Berbagi' (AMDB) program targets not only schoolchildren but also university students. The bank had the opportunity to introduce AMDB to the academic circles when it was invited to take part in Pekan Beasiswa UI, a forum for students of Universitas Indonesia to seek scholarships, held from October 2 to 3, 2012, at the university's Faculty of Social and Political Sciences. 

CIMB Niaga also made a presentation on its Beasiswa Unggulan (scholarship for high-achievers) and Beasiswa Unggulan Teknologi Industri Kreatif CIMB (scholarship for students intending to take courses on technological applications for creative industries). As part of the AMDB campaign, students were informed of the beautiful concept of saving and sharing, and invited to apply the concept on the spot. The team managed to raise a total of Rp 102,900 during the whole event, and the money would go to the AMDB account for use in character building and improvement projects in Indonesia. CIMB Niaga expected that its participation in the UI scholarship week would help students to relive and embrace the culture of sharing with others.


Kit for Kids 2012 Semarang and Yogyakarta Campaigns

After two previous series of successful campaigns in Jabodetabek and Bandung, Kit for Kids once again reached out to nature-loving children; this time, the team from CIMB Niaga came to SDI An Nisaa and SD Marsudirini in Semarang, and SDI Al Azhar 31 and SD Budi Mulya Dua in Yogyakarta on October 30 and 31, 2012. Around 642 young Kit for Kids participants from the listed schools enjoyed all activities: a story about the goodness of saving and sharing brought to them by an attractive storyteller, fund-raising session involving all children and planting trees with their teachers in their schoolyards.  

A total of Rp 4,642,400 was collected, and the money would go into the AMDB account and be used for organizing personal skill development courses aimed at early childhood education teachers all over Indonesia.

The distribution of kemuning tree seedlings by CIMB Niaga to all participating schools symbolized a hope that these institutions, with their quality education, would be long remembered as the lasting sweet-smelling fragrant of kemuning would in people's mind. The trees also imply CIMB Niaga's commitment to the environment, and the children were expected to nurture them to ensure that these plants will in time provide shade and greeneries. 


Children in Surabaya Take Part in 2012 Kit For Kids

A song popular among kids, 'Di Sini Senang di Sana Senang', heightened the spirit of SD Santo Carolus Surabaya and SD Santa Maria 2 Sidoarjo schoolchildren when CIMB Niaga team visited them during the Kit for Kids Surabaya campaign, taking place from December 10 to 10, 2012. Sung together when the team told them stories, the tune seemed to perfectly brightened up the day and brought greater warmth and joy. 

The children were also encouraged to donate their money, and the results were fantastic: SD Santo Carolus managed to raise Rp 830,000, while SD Santa Maria II Sidoarjo collected Rp 1,532,000. The amount of money that they gave for others -- Rp 2,362,000 -- showed that they cared and were aware that many children out there need their helping hands in order to be able to keep going to school and study. All the raised funds would go to the special 'Ayo Menabung dan Berbagi' account and be used for the effort to promote education in Indonesia.

Kit for Kids Surabaya concluded with a joint tree-planting session at each school, and the children were full of enthusiasm when they joined the team in all stages of planting: from tilling the soil to planting the seedlings. Showing that CIMB Niaga and the participating institutions and children really cared for the environment, they took a step further and greened areas outside their schools. 

Kit for Kids Medan: Motivation to Share

December 18, 2012. 'Ayo Menabung dan Berbagi' is a program to motivate children to save money and share it under the Kit for Kids scheme. Taking place in Medan on December 18, 2012, the initiative held high the spirit of the schoolchildren of SD Harapan 1, 2 and 3 to learn to share with their less-fortunate peers. 

"Many children out there have lost the opportunity to learn at school; others who are slightly luckier have to take a really long route to get to their schools. So, to help these kids, let's set aside some of our money for those in need, and donate it to CIMB Niaga's AMDB program," encouraged Perlindungan Lubis, principal of SD Harapan 1 and 2 in Medan.

His message, and an AMDB video showing Indonesia's education, opened his children's eyes to the fact that it is important to share what they have. And in a fund-raising session that followed, a total of Rp 1,429,200 was collected for use in a character-buillding initiative involving Indonesian children. 

The program's agenda covered story-telling and tree-planting sessions with a purpose of teaching the children the importance of growing plants for environmental preservation in Indonesia. CIMB Niaga thanks all the lovely and caring children, and hopes that what they donated would benefit many people.


Kit for Kids Malang: A Cool City of Malang Welcome

Joy, happiness and laughter filled the air when CIMB Niaga invited schoolchildren of SD Negeri 1 Kauman and SD Islam Sabilillah in Malang to participate in the Kit for Kids projects. CIMB Niaga expected to see all participating children enjoying the sessions so that cheers and laughter would make them see life as positively meaningful. 

Gift presentation, interactive story-telling and tree planting kept them in high spirit and happily absorbed in all activities. With enthusiasm and warmth they met the Kit for Kids team members who then engaged them in various games, and in sessions where they sang songs together and donated money for others. Even the sharing part of the event brought joy to them because they were aware that what they shared would benefit less-fortunate children.

 A total of Rp 445,500 was collected; however, no matter how small or big the contribution they made, it showed that they cared and it was their best gift to others.  

Thank you, little friends...
