Coffindo – School Equipment Donation for Aceh Elementary School
POSTED ON 01.04.2015
Being one of the leading companies in Medan, Coffindo is also committed to undertake the social responsibility of environmental care.
Nowadays, modern society tends to have less care for the environment. Some of them have even become apathetic over this issue. However as the world keeps facing the real threat of Global warming issue every day, the needs of environmental care awareness is inevitable.
Coffindo through its CSR program of environmental care, has been in line with government program of “sustainable development with clean and health environment”. On March 22nd, 29th and 31st 2013, coincided with the World Water Day, Coffindo has conducted several activities in accordance with environmental care. Included in these activities were garbage and household waste cleanup found in canals and trenches; bushes and wild plants cleanup in sidewalks; and donated bags of rice to elders.
All of these activities were conducted in Jl. Tani Asli Dusun II Barat Desa Tanjung Gusta, close by Coffindo’s head office. This location was chosen because we realized that the awareness has to be started within our surrounding environment first.
The goal of this project is mainly to create a cleaner and, without hesitation, a better environment for society to live together in harmony. A heath environment will create a healthier life of community and eventually, it would all create prosper and wealth community.
These activities could not have been executed without the help of the local NGO, Forum Transparansi Rakyat Indonesia (F-TRI), represented by Mr. Rusli as the head of environmental care. It also was fully supported by the local society.
