PALEMBANG. 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, MTUA Rekind collaborated with RZ to distribute scholarship assistance to underprivileged children in Palembang.
There were 20 elementary students who received this scholarship assistance. 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 MT Telkomsel and RZ for the scholarship. I promise that I will use it as good as possible,” Ahmad Taufik, a beneficiary, said. ***
