BUMI Resources, through its subsidiary Arutmin Indonesia (Arutmin), has carried out several social and environmental responsibility programmes in the local community of its Kintap site, South Kalimantan.
Arutmin’s yearly education programme for its Kintap Mine has granted educational scholarship aid known as ‘Kintap Cerdas’ to 135 students from 21 schools located near the mine. 15 primary education schools, 3 junior high schools, and 3 senior high schools have benefited from the scheme. In allocating the scholarships, priority was given to orphans and those from low-income families.
Arutmin is also providing an advanced educational programme, teaching sewing and computer skills. Participants in this programme include the head of Kintap District, all the chiefs of the surrounding villages, all school headmasters and teachers, and Arutmin representatives.
Arutmin has also granted a company vehicle to the Office of Animal Husbandry of the government of Tanah Laut Regency, South Kalimantan. This donation recognized the success of the Minisitry of Agirculture’s animal husbandry programme.
Saptari Hoedaja, President Director of BUMI, stated, "We feel privileged to carry out its social and environmental responsibility programmes in accordance with the established strategic plans, and support the Presidential Regulation (Perpres) No. 59 of 2017 on the achievement of sustainable development goals.”
