In accordance with Jalin 4th anniversary commitment titled, “The Spirit of Synergy for a Tough Nation”, Jalin showed its concern for community through the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) program of Non Cash Payment Education in the form of Electronic Money (Uang Elektronik/UNIK) and learning devices for 300 less fortunate children in South Jakarta, Tuesday (29/12).
The educational fund was given by Jalin VP Corporate Secretary Christianus Panjisasongko through Yayasan Pemimpin Anak Bangsa with the amount of Rp 19.727.999 for 105 children and Sekolah Alam Tunas Mulia Bantar Gebang amounting at Rp 32.777.000 for 195 children, with the total aid fund of Rp 52.504.000.
This program is a part of the Jalin CSR series in the child’s early educational sector that focuses on supporting the growth of the digital payment instrument acceptance in Indonesia as well as to support the “Gerakan Nasional Non Tunai (GNNT)” or Non Cash National Movement Program initiated by Bank of Indonesia. Previously in 2019, Jalin provided similar aid educational funds for 115 children in Fishing Village, Cilincing.
Currently, the Covid-19 pandemic crisis is the main challenge that Indonesia is facing. The non-cash transaction habit to lessen the Covid-19 spreading risk is one of the most important things that need to be socialized. It is hoped that the education program can introduce the non-cash lifestyle to the children to create a new transaction habit that is more digitalized, healthy and secure.
