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 2018, the "Back to School" reached out to 1,299 students from ten primary schools in Bukit Mertajam, Penang; and a school in Pahang of which the majority are from the indigenous group or Orang Asli. To date, more than 14,000 primary schoolchildren from various parts of Malaysia have benefited from this project.
