Telecommunication operator PT Indosat has conducted a program that engages the company's employees to voluntarily teach at schools in remote areas to demonstrate the company's commitment to enhancing the quality of education in the country.
Indosat's president director and CEO Alexander Rusli said in Jakarta recently that the program, called Indosat Employees Homestay, was conducted in collaboration with the Gerakan Indonesia Mengajar (Indonesia Teaches Movement) initiative.
Gerakan Indonesia Mengajar deploys educated youth to teach in remote areas across the archipelago to promote community service in education. The movement was initiated by Anies Baswedan, who is currently the Minister of Culture and Elementary and Secondary Education.
As many as 10 employees from different levels have been selected to join the one-week Indosat Employees Homestay program.With the Indosat Employees Homestay program, the company supports tangible action to increase the quality of education in off-the-beaten track regions that, in general, still lack adequate learning facilities and means, according to Alexander.
The Indosat employees had the opportunity to directly interact with the community in the remote areas, along with young teachers from Indonesia Mengajar, Alexandersaid as quoted by tribunenews.com.
