Many Citi Bangladesh employees are active volunteers in the community. For example, over 150 Citi employee volunteers about 55% of the total workforce participated in Global Community Day on November 8, 2008 along with clients, friends and family members.
Recognising the increase in negligence of the elderly by their families, Citi Bangladesh decided to volunteer at Boshipuk. Located in the Gazipur district of Dhaka, Boshipuk provides shelter for senior citizens over 60 years of age and is one of the largest homes for the elderly in Bangladesh.
The Citi volunteers spent the day with more than 250 of the homes residents who welcomed the opportunity for more social interaction as many have only limited contact with people outside the home.
In addition to the extra companionship and friendly conversations, the residents were treated to a movie,
cultural activities, games, and a tasty lunch. The costs were covered by Citi and various client donations.
The longer-term benefits of the day included more trees being planted in the grounds and building repairs done by a number of Citi employees, as well as Citi donating some much-needed new equipment for the home.

Employee Volunteerism: Sharing Our Community Spirit with the Elderly
The elderly residents were so appreciative of our efforts and attention. It was very gratifying for us that our simple gestures went a long way to cheering and comforting them.
