NewsServant Leadership Day – Velika Drenova
Second Servant Leadership Day in 2018 was organized in the village of Velika Drenova. This event, traditionally held each year, is a symbol of the Bank’s mission and values and represent an opportunity for employees to connect with clients and local communities.
Kindergarten “Biseri” in Velika Drenova was voted in an online survey, organized through the official Facebook page, as one of the three institutions that will receive the Bank’s support through donation and volunteering. The kindergarten received new windows, equipment needed for bathroom renovation and cupboards for toys that were set up just before the start of the new school year. This kindergarten is attended by about 50 children divided in two groups.
We spent the first day of September in Velika Drenova, where about 40 employees of Opportunity Bank, joined by local villagers and kindergarten employees, volunteered by painting the children’s playground, benches, carpentry and facade, mowing the loan, cleaning etc. The day passed in a blink of an eye because of the large amount of work that was supposed to be done, but more so because of the wonderful time spent together and the new friendships made.
We left Velika Drenova, as well as Šumarice, with a lot of joy in our hearts and beautiful memories, ready for the last volunteering activity this year to be held in Mošorin.
