The Bank worked towards spread of literacy and generation of livelihood. The programmes covered a cross section of the communities, both adults and children.

Several programmes were also hosted in partnership with leading developmental Institutions s.a. NABARD and ISMW..
- Child Education Programme:
This program was designed primarily for school children. Under this initiative, representatives from the Bank visited schools, interacted with the teachers and students to understand their primary needs. Thereafter, the after school, study sessions were devised and organized after obtaining consent of the school heads. In these sessions, gaming activities were used to teach the students about savings, in an entertaining manner. At these events, the Bank distributed bags, copies, pens, lunch boxes and water bottles among the students.
The Bank carried out afforestation drives by distributing and planting saplings.
- Relief and Rehabilitation:
The Bank distributed food items in various flood-affected areas. It also distributed warm clothing among the economically disadvantaged communities during the winter months.
Fincare conducted numerous health camps in FY20 and the community at large benefited from this. The Bank selected the villages, interacted with the people to understand their healthcare needs and then invited senior doctors for day-long medical camps.
