Taman Baca Inovator (TBI) is currently working hand in hand with PT Viaeigt for its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) program. As part of the program, an activity to invite people to donate books for children was developed. PT Viaeight Indonesia is a media company for public transportation in Jakarta such as commuter line train and Transjakara, so the points of donation were scattered over 7 train stations. To our surprise, so many people had donated their books for underprivileged children. The program had gathered more than 10,000 books within six months, and 60% of the books are children books — the rest of the books fell under textbook category or others.
We could see clearly the good and noble intentions of Mr. Mulyadi Ng as the CEO of PT. Viaeight Indonesia to encourage children to have a big dream for their future. We also saw such a good teamwork from Ibu Febby and Pak Teguh who have given their best effort to gather the books. Piles and boxes of books filled Viaeight office space, and its employees worked together to pack the books amid their own work and deadline. It was such a real act of kindness. The company was not donating books just for the sake of good reputation or just to have a successful event, but it was truly an inspiring act of kindness from the people within the company to help underprivileged children.
