PT Waskita Karya (Persero) Tbk participated in the success of the Ministry of SOE Volunteer Service Program for Indonesia, which was present as a BUMN offering for Indonesia. This program is held in the framework of the 77th Anniversary of the Republic of Indonesia (HUT RI).
The SOE Volunteer Service Program is a program initiated by the Ministry of BUMN to provide opportunities for SOE employees from all over Indonesia to be directly involved in giving their service to build Indonesia through the Social and Environmental Responsibility Program (TJSL).
After Batch 1 was successfully held in Mandalika, Sumba, and Lake Toba, then Batch 2 The SOE Volunteer Service Program will be held in 6 (six) locations, namely SOE Bakti for Karangasem in Bali, SOE Bakti for Bunaken in North Sulawesi, Bakti SOE for Bunaken in North Sulawesi, Bakti SOE for Bunaken SOE for Bedouin in Banten, Bakti SOE for Surakarta in Central Java, Bakti SOE for Way Kambas in Lampung and Bakti SOE for Anambas in Riau Islands where this program is organized by collaboration of 15 SOE and SOE Foundation for Indonesia. Several Waskita personnel have registered for this SOE Volunteer Service Program that has been open since July 24 - 31, 2022.
The Minister of SOE, Erick Thohir invited SOE employees to contribute to the achievement of sustainable development. From 9,845 registrants, 77 SOE Employee Volunteers have been selected who are ready to make a real contribution to the SOE Volunteer Service Program.
"This program is in accordance with our commitment that BUMN must be present in the midst of society. Of course this time the presence of BUMN is very special because it is carried out in the month of Indonesian independence," Erick said in Jakarta, Saturday (13/8/2022).
Erick assessed that increasing the engagement of BUMN employees is one of the 5 (five) Main Transformation Priorities of the Social and Environmental Responsibility Program. This is driven by the understanding that to achieve sustainable goals requires the participation of all SOE employees from all levels and fields to jointly take a role in achieving sustainable development and building social communities within the company.
The Ministry of SOEs together with SOEs are committed to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by continuously implementing various programs. Erick hopes that the implementation of the BUMN Volunteer Service Program can run smoothly and the common goal of implementing the program can be achieved, in order to build Indonesia to Recover Faster and Rise Stronger.
"Hopefully this good program can provide benefits for the community. I hope this program does not stop here and can continue with various innovations in the future," concluded Erick.
In addition, the Company's SVP Corporate Secretary explained, "This program will be carried out on 14-17 August 2022 with various activities that will be carried out directly by the Volunteers in the form of Education and Assistance activities related to Health and Education for Students and Communities, Tree Planting, MSME Development to Cultural Conservation. Waskita participated in sending our Insans as a form of BUMN's service to the community," said Novianto.
This series of SOE Volunteer Service Programs will be closed with the implementation of the 77th RI Anniversary Ceremony that is simultaneously carried out by involving the local community. “Waskita will hold a ceremony for the 77th Independence Day of the Republic of Indonesia in Badui, Banten. Several officials from the Board of Directors and SVP will attend the ceremony there," added Novianto.
