BANDA ACEH. (15/6). Education is important because it equips us with the expertise that is needed in helping us realize our career goals. It is the basis of culture and civilization. It is instrumental in the development of our values and virtues. It wipes out the wrong beliefs from our minds. It helps create a clear picture of things around, and erases all the confusion.
Therefore to help the development of education in remote areas, RZ attempts to distribute scholarship assistance to help and support underprivileged children’s education sustainability in a sub urban area in Aceh named Sigli.
There were 49 underprivilged children who received scholarship assistance for fulfilling their education cost. In addition to the distribution of scholarship assistance, RZ also implemented regular mentoring conducted once a week for beneficiaries.
Susilowati, Project Monitoring and Evaluation Leader of RZ, said that the program is initiated to foster their behavior and moral value which is expected to be a great generation. “We’d like to say thank to RZ and donors for the scholarship. I promise that I will use it as good as possible,” Fida Fazirah (14), a beneficiary, said. ***
