recently completed a COLORFUL COMMUNITIES project in Jakarta, Indonesia, that helped revitalize the Sekolah Dasar Negeri 06 Jati (Primary School).
The project brought together more than 30 PPG volunteers, who spent four days beautifying the fencing and multifunction sports field for the public school’s 150 students, 35 teachers and 10 staff members. This was the first Colorful Communities project completed in Indonesia.
PPG provided more than 50 liters (13 gallons) of SIGMA paint products and $3,450 (50 million IDR) to support the project. PPG also donated equipment for the students to play basketball, futsal, volleyball, badminton and other sports.
The Colorful Communities program provides PPG volunteers and products along with financial contributions to bring color and vitality to communities where the company operates around the world, such as in Jakarta, where PPG has a protective and marine coatings facility.
“We thank PPG and the PPG Foundation for enhancing our students’ learning experience by revitalizing our sports field and donating much-needed sports equipment,” said Mrs. Kodariyah, principal, Sekolah Dasar Negeri 06 Jati Primary School.
Volunteers painted the school’s fence with black and the sports field in a green and white color palette. These colors were chosen to create a bold and bright space for students participating in sporting activities.
“PPG is pleased to help these local students experience all facets of education in an environment that is inviting and inspiring,” said Anurag Sahai, PPG country manager, Indonesia. “We hope the students enjoy their revitalized sports field as they exercise their bodies as well as their minds.”
