PrimeBiz Hotel Kuta Renovating Elementary School Toilets
PrimeBiz Hotel Kuta for the second time successfully completed the “Toilet Bersih dan Sehat' (Indonesian for Clean and Healthy Toilet) program or TBS in the form of funding assistance to renovate toilet buildings at SD No. 1 Talibeng, Sidemen District, Karangasem Regency, Bali. The activity, which come as Green Box charity program, is a part of company participation to support the government program in educating the nation through the provision of appropriate school facilities to support teaching and learning in schools. The project handover was conducted on October 23, 2019 by Wayan Warta as the General Manager of PrimeBiz Hotel Kuta to representatives of SDN 1 Talibeng at the local school.
The 'Toilet Bersih dan Sehat' (Indonesian for Clean and Healthy Toilet) program is one of the PrimeBiz Hotel Kuta’s CSR many initiatives besides other social and environmental preservation. In its implementation the TBS program is designed to involve as many workers as possible around the school and the material procurement also uses the services of local material stores. This is done so to ensure that this assistance truly provides economic benefits to the community around the school and builds a sense of community ownership and concern for the existence of the school.
"From our observations in a number of elementary schools, toilet facilities often receive less attention. Even though toilet facilities play an important role in supporting the teaching and learning process in schools. In addition, clean and healthy toilet facilities can be used as a very important educational media to instill a healthy lifestyle from an early age. This is the reason we run the TBS program. We hope that the handover of toilet facilities will have a good impact on all school residents, "said Yenny Jayanti, Human Resources Coordinator who is also the coordinator of this activity.
In addition to coming from the company's CSR funds, funding for this program also comes from the Green Box charity program, voluntary donations from employees and donations from guests who stay overnight. Last year the same program was also carried out at Negari 3 State Elementary School, Banjarangkan District in Klungkung Regency.
