"Back to School" Project
As part of PPB Group Berhad’s Corporate Social Responsibility activities for the community, PPB has initiated the “Project Sole” whereby PPB has donated school shoes, socks and shoe whitener to school children from poor families in Klang. The project was extended to 2011, to reach out to poor school children in Jinjang.
In 2012, PPB brought this project to another level by giving away school uniforms besides school shoes and socks and renamed the project "Back to School". This project has been beneficial in meeting the basic needs of underprivileged school-going children. It has been carried out annually since 2012 and extended to schoolchildren in Sungai Buloh, Selangor; Sentul, Kuala Lumpur; Senawang, Negeri Sembilan; Bagan Serai, Perak; Manek Urai, Kelantan; and Asahan, Melaka.
To date, more than 10,000 poor primary schoolchildren have benefitted from this project and PPB has spent a total of about RM450,000 on this project.
