KUCHING: Bank Simpanan Nasional (BSN) Sarawak will continue to work with selected schools in Sarawak as part of their corporate social responsibility (CSR) after holding a BSN 2015 School Carnival event at four schools in the state this year.

BSN Sarawak business director Zamri Ngah said such programmes encourage young people to be charitable, raise funds and invest their savings.

“We have to teach young people how to be a caring society and to save up to become a caring society and future asset capable of taking care of themselves and helping others,” he said at an appreciation event for state education staff and parent-teacher associations (PTAs) at a hotel here yesterday.

“BSN thanks the teachers, headmasters and PTAs for organising events with us to help young people in schools,” he added.

Zamri said that BSN had many products to assist people with credit and he hoped the 1Teacher Card through working collaboration with Yayasan Guru Malaysia Berhad (YGMB) could help teachers access credit.

“We give the lowest interest rate of 8.88 per cent a year and credit card at very low interest compared to other credit card companies,” he said,

He said this was the first credit card of its kind in Malaysia to help teachers and staff of the Ministry of Education enjoy many benefits including insurance.

BSN would continue to promote its products and give many benefits to account holders to build rapport with young people to encourage savings and investments.

Present at the appreciation high tea event were CEO of YGBM, Dato Wan Munaidi Wan Mamat, YBGM general manager Azman Hashium and Sarawak education director Rogayah Madon.

BSN calls on the public to support them in the coming Final Countdown of Cabutan 1 Juta SSP BSN at Summer Shopping Mall Kota Samarahan on Saturday (Dec 19).
