On November 8, 2008, Barclays Bank Seychelles’ annual Make a Difference Day was launched in the presence of Vincent Meriton, the Minister for Community Development, Youth, Sports and Culture.

This launch was a day of activities run by Barclays Bank staff who offer to community projects their time rather than money and offshore banking services.

The activities organised this year included :
– a day out for Silhouette schoolchildren (watching the movie Wall-E at Deepam Cinema, La Salle d’Oeuvres, visiting the Botanical Gardens, lunch and visiting the National Council for Children’s headquarters);
– a sports extravaganza at the Roche Caïman complex for 50 secondary school students to try new sports;
– Microsoft applications training at the Foyer de Nazareth home (Barclays’ IT team provided basic PC training and an introduction to MS Word and Excel to boys aged 4-17).
– tree planting and a guided tour at the Biodiversity Centre, Barbarons;
– tree planting at Anse Source d’Argent, La Digue.
