ING donates € 50,000 to Jonk Entrepreneuren for its financial education activities in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg.

For several years, ING has been very active in the "Job Shadow Day" and "Fit For Life" programmes set up by Jonk Entrepreneuren Luxembourg (JEL).

The "Job Shadow Day" project gives students aged 16 and over the opportunity to discover the life of a business and to accompany the managing director or his or her representatives during a working day.

"Fit for Life" is an educational programme for pupils aged 14 to 16 years, which aims to pass on economic, financial and business concepts through the intervention of an external volunteer. It stimulates reflection on professional and personal choices by addressing topics such as education and career options, loans and taxes.

ING is proud to have several of its employees volunteer to participate in these two initiatives.

As a responsible and committed company, ING has placed financial education at the heart of its sustainability policy. Through this collaboration, the Bank reaffirms its commitment to working with stakeholders in Luxembourg to enable citizens, and in particular young people, to better understand and manage their personal finances.

Beyond the human support, ING is happy to announce a financial support to the association Jonk Entrepreneuren Luxembourg (JEL) by making a donation of € 50,000.

"Financial education plays an essential role in preparing young people to live an independent life, to choose a career that suits them and to carry out the personal or entrepreneurial projects that are close to their hearts", concludes Stéphanie Damgé, Director of Jonk Entrepreneuren.
