Hero Supermarket and Giant launched customer donation program which is focused to help the early childhood education (PAUD). Hero supermarket launched “Senyum Indonesia” (“Smile of Indonesia”) program, while Giant launched “Indonesian Children Inspiring Movement (GIAT Indonesia)”.
“Education is an important factor which becomes the key of a country’s development. Therefore, Hero Supermarket and Giant fully support education through customer donation programs, namely “Senyum Indonesia” (“Smile of Indonesia”) and GIAT Indonesia,” Tony Mampuk, GM Corporate Affairs PT Hero Supermarket Tbk said in his speech, Tuesday (15/5).
Through the two programs, he added, he called on customers to develop education in Indonesia together, particularly early childhood education. Children at the ages of 2-6 years old are in the golden era of their growth that they need more attention and good education.
Customer Donation Program is supported by PKPU Human Initiative, an Indonesian humanitarian institution which has been experienced since 1999 and recognized internationally by the United Nations. This cooperation is built based on the mutual mission to fight for education in Indonesia from the early age.
“Cooperation with PKPU Human Initiative aims to make customer fund management more on target because PKPU will coordinate directly with the supermarkets to find PAUD which really need support. Further information on the fund and PAUD from this Customer Donation is available on our website,” Tony Mampuk revealed.
Meanwhile, PKPU-HI Partnership Director, Andjar Radite, said he was proud of participating in this customer donation program initiated by Hero Supermarket and Giant because this program will help many schools. “Hopefully, this program will get a good response from Hero Supermarket and Giant customers,” Andjar stated.
