PT Hexindo Adiperkasa Tbk conducted an event namely “Book for Nusantara 2016” as a part of our commitment to give a support to Education & Future Indonesian Young Generation Development in December 2016.
On that event, we were distributing 1988 Children Books – Story Reading Book & Encyclopedia – to some elementary school libraries in Sangatta & Merauke surroundings.
Direct impact that we could see through this event is related to the improvement of children enthusiasm in fulfilling their anxiety to the knowledge. Indirectly we are involving to support a Government Program called “Gerakan Literasi Indonesia 2016”.
We plan to continue this event in the next years. The opportunity to conduct event that closely related to children development (although in the small scoop) has spurred us to think of an idea about simple & effective program for employee’s children development as well as we consider to do the same thing to the community.

Hitachi Construction Machinery Australia (HCA) supports donations of medical equipment to pediatric hospitals in Australia. On December 15, 2016, HCA delivered a ventilator to the Children’s Hospital at Westmead, in Sydney, New South Wales.
HCA supports the activities of the Humpty Dumpty Foundation (HDF) in Australia. The foundation was established as a charitable organization to help children in 1996. HDF is engaged in delivering medical equipment to pediatric hospitals in Australia. One the HDF’s fundraising activities is the Humpty’s Wish List which features life-saving medical equipment expressly needed by the over 250 hospitals and infant wards in Australia. The list provides donors with the opportunity to choose a piece of medical equipment for a hospital of their choice. Donors submit their request to the foundation and are matched with a hospital. HCA endorses this activity and each year donates medical equipment worth AU$100,000.
In November and December, preparations were also underway for medical equipment, valued at AU$40,000, for four hospitals. HCA plans to continue to work with the Humpty Dumpty Foundation to carry out activities that put smiles on the faces of children in Australia.

On September 13, 2016, a group of 21 volunteers, comprising employees from Hitachi Construction Machinery (China) Co., Ltd. and Hitachi Construction Machinery (Shanghai) Co., Ltd. and participants from 14 business partners conducted afforestation activities in the Horqin Desert, which is located in the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region of China.
The volunteer Horqin Desert afforestation project was started in 2004. Over a 10-year period up to 2013, the program has planted trees and greenery in a 100,000 square meter plot of desert, which has been dubbed the Hitachi Construction Machinery Forest. A new ten-year vision was created and launched in 2014. The goal is to work with sales agents in China to plant vegetation in to 130,000 square meter plot of land.
The volunteers’ first stop was to visit the Hitachi Construction Machinery Forest, which is flush with trees. There, Takashi Otaki, head of the local chapter of the NPO Green Network, gave an explanation of volunteer activities. The volunteers then observed the results of the desert afforestation activities.
In the afternoon, the volunteers were taken to a new 130,000 square meter patch of desert where they planted 150 pine tree seedlings. After they were finished, they watered the pine tree seedlings and prayed that the seedlings would grow into strong trees.
Hitachi Construction Machinery (China) and Hitachi Construction Machinery (Shanghai) are committed to continuing these afforestation activities.

On December 10, 2016, NPO Good Earth Japan (GEJ) held a ceremony to present the village of Bosampor, which is located in Battambang Province in the northwestern part of Cambodia, with a reservoir that it was built with the support of the GEJ.
The construction consisted of integrating two small reservoirs into one large reservoir to provide water for daily life and farming to 120 households in the village (approximately 450 people). Construction began in early November. Once completed, the reservoir was 59 meters long, 37 meters in width, and 4 meters deep.
A total of 160 people including Koji Sumioka, Representative Director of GEJ, and Executive Vice President of Hitachi Construction Machinery, and 90 adults and 60 children from Bosampor village participated in the ceremony to celebrate the completion of the reservoir. Representing the village, the deputy village chief made a powerful statement, promising that the villagers would maintain and manage the reservoir, as well as a road that was constructed in a separate project. After the ceremony, participants enjoyed num banh chok, commonly known as Khmer noodles, which are made from rice, and spent time making friends with the village people.
GEJ aims to improve the standard of living and independence of farmers living in areas of Cambodia that have been cleared of landmines. To this end, the GEJ’s activities focus on the development of an infrastructure, including the building of roads, and the creation of reservoirs necessary for daily life and irrigating farm lands. The Hitachi Construction Machinery Group aims to continue to support the GEJ’s activities.
