Other Social Activities

Other Social Activities
In addition to the above CSR focus, MPPA also has other social activities. MPPA places high importance on children’s education. Within the year, MPPA continued its cooperation with Dompet Dhuafa, a prominent non-profit organization in Indonesia, for collecting customers’ donations to refurbish less fortunate schools in several regions and Yayasan Pendidikan Harapan Papua (YPHP) to support childrens’ education in remote areas within Papua island.

MPPA & Dompet Dhuafa
MPPA has cooperated with Dompet Dhuafa since 2006 through “Program Infak via Kasir”. Conducted by Dompet Dhuafa, this program enables consumers and the public at large to provide donations for helping community development programs while shopping. Consumers can donate the shopping cash change, round-up cash change, or direct infaq donation through the cashiers of all Company’s stores. During 2016, this program has successfully repaired several infrastructures in 6 elementary schools and educational institutions within Greater Jakarta and outer Java islands, which needed the support for revamping their key infrastructures. Moreover, teachers’ accompaniment and training sessions were also performed within those institutions. MPPA will continue the cooperation with Dompet Dhuafa in 2017 where it expects greater participation from customer donation would enable more aid and assistance for more refurbishments of less fortunate schools throughout Indonesia.

In 2016, Yayasan Pendidikan Harapan Papua (YPHP), a non-profit organization in Indonesia, initiated a cooperation with MPPA to support the development of school infrastructure and children education in remote areas of Papua island. This cooperation is engaged through MPPA’s philanthropic donation to YPHP. Additionally, YPHP conducted a social program of collecting the customer donations from cashiers in all of MPPA’s stores. Similar to other programs, MPPA will continue this cooperation with YPHP in 2017 with the expectation for more social contribution toward the children at those remote areas for the opportunity of education.
