Indonesian tech giant Gojek announces $6 M fund for its driver partners in times of COVID-19
While Indian startups like Ola are leading by example, Indonesian tech giant Gojek announced a $6 million fund, the Gojek Partner Support Fund, for its driver partners to cope with low demand in the wake of COVID-19 pandemic.
The Gojek Partner Support Fund will be managed by a new foundation, Yayasan Anak Bangsa Bisa, to ensure transparency and good governance in the disbursement of funds, the company stated.
The company had earlier announced an initiative to provide income assistance for drivers who had tested positive for COVID-19.
Ola also announced that it would cover loss of income for driver-partners and their spouses in case they test positive for coronavirus (COVID-19).
Weâ€˜re doing everything we can in these tough times to reduce the economic burden for our driver partners.
