MADD, which is now in its 14th year, was organized by Community Service Volunteers (CSV), a charity set up to promote volunteering activities.
Barclays has been involved in the campaign as an integral part of the employee community programme since 2000.
The Managing Director of Barclays Ghana, Benjamin Dabrah said, Ã¢â‚¬Å“We will use the campaign to encourage volunteering among colleagues. Employee engagement is at the core of our community investment programme.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Last yearÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s MADD was very successful across emerging markets with 16,500 colleagues participating in 1,077 projects across 13 countries.
This year, over 4000 staff, family members and community partners took part in MADD activities across Ghana.
Unlike previous years, more groups registered to undertake counseling, career fairs and health screening this year.
This is a significant departure from the usual weeding and painting of schools and hospitals.
Barclays Bank Ghana, which is part of the global Barclays Group, is one of the largest banks in Ghana, offering retail banking and commercial banking products and services.
