What We Do
The mission of Brighter Future Myanmar Foundation (BFM) is to uplift the lives of the underdeveloped community members at the grass-roots level and to alleviate poverty in the long run through its social initiative projects. As the main financier of KBZ Brighter Future Myanmar Foundation, KBZ Bank has contributed over MMK 156 billion in charitable giving, corporate sponsorships and community development projects since the inception of the foundation in 2008.
In 2008, Executive Directors of KBZ Bank, Daw Nang Lang Kham and Daw Nang Kham Noung, co-founded BFM with an initial objective to help the cyclone Nargis victims. The foundation later applied for NGO license in 2013 and it was then legally registered in 2014 to fully implement its five pillars of social commitments.
