BOVEN DIGOEL – PT Inocin Abadi (PT IA) rolled out a charity project for Naga (Sub)village’s public elementary school in Jair District, Boven Digoel Regency, South Papua. Launched under the Corporate Social Contribution (CSC) program, the project helped set up an educational-supporting facility and provided the tools. This work was also a government-led effort to improve education quality throughout the country.

On Saturday (3/28), this Korindo Group subsidiary handed over building materials involving 30 bags of cement, 7 m3 of sand, and gravel for the school’s volleyball court. All was delivered in a brief symbolic ceremony to school principal Lambertus Takerop.

“I’d like to thank PT Inocin for paying attention to us and making us a beneficiary. Since 2022, it’s provided us with concrete ingredients, which we’ll use to build a volleyball court,”

PT Inocin also sent 20 sets of desks and chairs to support learning activities in Naga (Sub)village’s kindergarten and PAUD (a combination of kindergarten and preschool). To this, school staff member Gabriel Ekoki shared how grateful he was, knowing teachers and students had been conducting lessons on the floor. He expected the donation to boost study motivation.

“Today, we’ve delivered cement, sand, and gravel to help the [elementary] school construct a volleyball court, and sent 20 sets of desks and chairs to the kindergarten and PAUD. Hopefully, these donations will encourage the kids to study harder,” said Nanang, person in charge of PT IA’S CSC program.
