Jirasak said the school bank was created to encourage youths to save to support their own futures as well as give them experience in working in a bank.
Bank President Wachira Karaked said the bank was proud to be a part of the project that supports children with their learning. The bank opened a similar project at Pattaya School No. 3 in 2012. It’s the 858th school bank in the country.
