The čuka Dinić School has received computer hardware and an overhead projector to modernise its technology classroom, and the donation was funded from consumer transactions using the bank’s Eurobank Big Heart humanitarian Mastercard. The new equipment will be particularly useful for students attending the school’s banking and insurance course.
‘I am very proud that we have been able to continue our socially responsible Tailor-Made Schools project, which we have been pursuing with support from the Ministry of Education, Science, and Technological Development and many of our clients who use the Eurobank Big Heart humanitarian Mastercard. We are happy that Leskovac’s čuka Dinić Secondary School of Economics now has a new, state-of-the art technology room where students who are future bank clerks will be able to train on software actually used in real banks. To date, we have invested more than 4.2 million dinars into the Tailor-Made Schools project and will continue pursuing this initiative’, said Slavica Pavlović, President of Eurobank’s Executive Board.
The importance of Eurobank’s donations to schools has also been recognised by the Ministry of Education, Science, and Technological Development.
In 2018, Eurobank launched its Tailor-Made Schools initiative by equipping the statistics and accounting classroom at the Belgrade’s First Secondary School of Economics and donating a language lab and digital library to the Stana Milanović Secondary School of Economics based in Šabac. The third donation went to Subotica, where Eurobank refurbished the banking environment classroom at the Bosa Milićević Secondary School of Economics. Apart from hardware donations, other key components of the project are lectures by Eurobank staff and work placements that allow students to gain theoretical and practical knowledge of banking.
