Why has PKO Bank Polski decided to join the 36th International Young Audience Film Festival Ale Kino! in Poznań as the Lead Partner?
Because we see it as a unique event for young people – educational, but at the same time enjoyable and filled with attractions. And what could be more important than enjoying yourself while having the opportunity to learn? This is exactly what modern education is about – and modern education is what PKO Bank Polski continues to be strongly committed to.
We are the only bank in Poland to implement a comprehensive educational programme that supports saving, entrepreneurship education, and budget management from an early age. Szkolne Kasy Oszczędności (a school savings fund) and the PKO Junior programmes are addressed to children under the age of 13. SKO operates in primary schools and promotes such skills and domains as saving, as well as basic knowledge of banking, economics, ecology, road safety, and healthy nutrition. PKO Junior, on the other hand, is an offer comprising such options as, among others, a personal account, debit card, and banking service, allowing children to learn practical skills, e.g. making payments via the Internet, initiating transfers, or using an ATM – all presented in an attractive form that appeals to young recipients. Thanks to such initiatives, children gain practical knowledge and acquire skills that they will find extremely useful – if not necessary – in their adult lives. In a few years, when they become conscious adult clients of banking services, they will be more confident in making decisions about the financial future of themselves and their beloved ones. PKO Bank Polski supports many educational events for children and youth, such as Poland and the Modern World Knowledge Contest, mathematical competitions, and science festivals.
We know that young girls and boys are curious about the world and other people. In that respect, Ale Kino Festival! offers a whole spectrum of new experiences. It educates, evokes emotions, and broadens horizons, which is why we are happy and proud to be supporting it again this year.
We hope you will all enjoy this time of creativity!
