Education is not only the single most important factor for an individual’s empowerment, it is crucial for societal development and progress. At Guaranty Trust, we are committed to championing education for all, irrespective of background, race, or economic status. We fund programmes that increase access to quality education, support campaigns that boost learning opportunities and create initiatives that encourage young people to stay in school.

Sports plays a fundamental role in fostering social cohesion, community development and youth empowerment. At GTBank, we bring the values of sports to school compounds to ensure that young people that are passionate about sports have the opportunity to hone their talents and build character whilst still very focused on their academics. Nigerian schools are filled with talented footballers waiting to be discovered. Through our sports education programmes—the Principal's Cup, the Master's Cup, the Super Cup, as well as the Players Development Programme—these talents are identified, nurtured and encouraged to build thriving football careers. The tournaments also feature cultural displays which entertain football lovers.
