Addiko Bank donation aids Ilidza school
"We are happy that this project is implemented,” School Director Arif Celovic said, expressing gratitude for the contribution. Celovic said 200 cabinets will be designated for hallway use and 147 cabinets for classroom use.
“Addiko Bank has enabled the children who attend the first elementary school to relieve (themselves of) overweight school bags and stay healthy, and we know how important it is, especially for children (of) elementary-school age," Celovic said. “It was a pleasure today (to) host director Pasic and her colleagues from the bank."
Pasic and her team toured the school to see student activities first-hand during the school’s annual New Year Bazaar. The school enrolls over 700 students.
"We could not choose a better day to visit the school,” Pasic said, thanking the staff. “New Year Bazaar is really well organized.”
The Addiko Bank’s donations are “a reflection of our efforts to promote socially responsible actions of companies in the communities in which they operate,” Pasic said. Pasic also complimented the faculty’s practical use of the funding.
Addiko Bank maintains its global headquarters in Klagenfurt, Austria.
