Standard Bank helps launch Golaganang initiative

27 May 2002  |  1224 views  |  0 Standard Bank helps launch Golaganang initiative

Standard Bank is to participate in a joint initiative between the South African government and a group of private companies to connect at least 50,000 families of public service employees to the Internet over the next six months.

The Department of Public Service and Administration (DPSA) and the State IT Agency (Sita) have teamed up with Hewlett-Packard South Africa (HP SA), CS Holdings, Microsoft South Africa, Telkom and Standard Bank to structure the Golaganang initiative.

Together, these organisations will give government employees access to a package of basic technology tools and services, including e-banking, at an affordable price. It is anticipated the project will allow the cost-effective distribution of technology to a broader segment of the population, stimulate a culture of digital learning, as well as help to transition the country to an information-driven economy.
