JAKARTA (SK) – The Non-governmental institution are suggested not just chasing profits but also take part to provide solutions and contribute to the nation development.
It was stated by the Head of Human Resources Development of Korindo Group, J Andre Roberto, in Jakarta, on Thursday (9/4).
“Rising the welfare of the people is not only the government’s duty, but also the related stakeholders’ such as the private sector through Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR),” said Andre during the program of providing 200 weigh scales to Health Centers.
The donation is symbolically delivered by Korindo to the Head of Pancoran district and the citizen representative at the District Office of Pancoran, South Jakarta. The aids for checking the toddlers’ weight are the products of Korindo Group, which has 30 thousand Indonesian employees, and only 1% of the total employees are Korean.
Andre says that the community empowerment should not stop only to the extent of idea. It should be implemented into reality that is truly beneficial to the community.
In addition to the physical aid, he says that they have realized many programs such as the development of “organic village” in South Jakarta. “This is a comprehensive program because it involves many aspects that we have prepared to help the community,” he said.
According to him, it is helping to establish cooperation with community empowerment specialists such as environmental activists and the founder of LPSM Bina Daya Kasih, Fence Ohoilulin. “Mr. Fence is the inventor of probiotic microbes which can be used as bio-activator for sewage treatment,” he said.
He adds that the results, which are in the form of liquid and solid fertilizer, can be utilized not only on plants, but also on animals such as cows, chickens, fish, and others. “So organic crops or livestock can be healthier and safe to eat because they contain no or less synthetic chemicals,” he said.
Furthermore, he says that Korindo also conducts a cleaning activity in the Ciliwung River, Bogor, West Java, in October 2014. And the most recently, a subsidiary of Korindo Group signed an agreement on a donation of Rp 1 billion with Budiasi Association as a form of their care.
The signing was conducted in Sentul, Bogor, West Java, on Saturday (21/2), by the Commander of Kopassus Major General TNI Doni Monardo as the representative of Budiasi Association, and the Director of PT Tunas Sawaerma, a subsidiary of Korindo Group, Kim Hoon, and witnessed by the CEO of Korindo Group, Robert Seung, along with the Minister of Environment and Forestry, Siti Nurbaya.
