Carrier and its distributor, PT Seltech Putera Batam, teamed up today to introduce the Green Shoots program to the Misi Bagi Bangsa School. Located in Batam, Indonesia, the school hosts 205 kindergarten and primary students. The Green Shoots program aims to enhance primary school learning environments and enrich students’ knowledge. Carrier, the world leader in high technology heating, air-conditioning and refrigeration solutions, is a part of UTC Climate, Controls & Security, a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE:UTX).
“The Green Shoots program, launched last year, engages employee volunteers to assist local communities and primary schools in underprivileged rural areas across Asia, including Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam, China and India. Our employees are passionate about supporting sustainability and actively organize and participate in the Green Shoots activities,” said Oon Wee Chin, vice president, Carrier - Southeast Asia.
Carrier and PT Seltech Putera Batam employees spent time with the children leading environmental education to enhance their knowledge and appreciation of nature. A series of activities were conducted, such as interactive presentations and competitions. The “Green Shoots Homelands” painting competition provided students the opportunity to demonstrate their creativity by painting their ideal image of the earth on schoolbags.
“We are pleased to take part in offering environmental protection lessons to the children,” said Alex Tanata, director, PT Seltech Putera Batam.
Carrier also presented scholarships to the top three students from each class to recognize their outstanding performance. “The Carrier scholarship program eases the financial burden for students’ families. We thank Carrier and PT Seltech Putera Batam for their support through the Green Shoots program,” said Jeugelin Kowaas, principal, Misi Bagi Bangsa School.
