As part of our CSR activities for the community, PPB has been giving school uniforms and shoes complete with socks and shoe whitener to schoolchildren from poor families under the "Back to School" project.
This project was initiated in 2010 and aims to meet the basic needs of needy school-going children and help ease the financial burden of low-income families. It is hoped that this contribution would encourage children from poor families to continue with their education.
For 2017, the "Back to School" project was held in Muar, Johor on 24 and 25 October. PPB reached out to 1,198 students from 17 primary schools. To date, more than 10,000 primary schoolchildren from underprivileged homes have benefited from this project.
