Local Hero: A Story of Profit that Develops Educational Opportunities in Rural Areas

Batu Bara, Jan, 31th 2024 - PT Indonesia Asahan Aluminum or INALUM strives to encourage environmental and social improvement programs together with local community groups, these programs can be implemented optimally because of the participation of the local community.

INALUM Corporate Secretary Mahyaruddin Ende said that this social innovation will always be carried out and developed because it is in accordance with Inalum's environmental & energy policies. Apart from that, the involvement of local communities is also the biggest factor in the success of this program.

"As a company that is committed to providing company operations that prioritize environmental protection and preventing environmental pollution, programs such as village development, especially in the academic field, need to always be monitored and developed. Especially with the assistance of the local community who are very helpful, making this program successful "according to plan and deserves to be appreciated," said Mahyaruddin.

One of the people who has received the title "Local Hero INALUM" is Dedi Syahputra who lives in Kuala Tanjung. Dedi Syahputra or usually known as Bang Untung, is the chairman of various communities such as the Chairman of the Al Mukhlisin Education Foundation, Chairman of Karang Taruna, and Chairman of the Sari Larva Berdaya Farmers Group. INALUM's Local Hero itself is the community around the Company who plays an important role in empowering the economy, environment and social community, together with the Company carrying out CSR programs that are sustainable and have a positive impact on the community.

The title "Local Hero INALUM" is very well deserved by Bang Untung. Despite the limitations of only being a junior high school graduate, he was able to build a school and influence the people in the surrounding area to care more about their children's education. Because according to him, knowledge is a window to life and children's education must be paid attention to from an early age. Because of that idea, he also provides free education for underprivileged families. Apart from education, he is also active in community empowerment programs.

"Educational needs, especially in villages, need to be given attention and followed up. By meeting the educational needs in an area, it will certainly make human resources develop further in the future," added Mahyaruddin.

Apart from that, Bang Untung has also helped carry out the development of several programs with Inalum, such as using Inalum food scraps, waste and canteen waste to become a program for cultivating maggot larvae, ducks, chickens and catfish. At that time, Bang Untung was given CSR funds by PT Inalum to build a livestock business. Until now, Untung and his group continue to develop their livestock business gradually. Currently there are 200 chickens, 200 ducks and thousands of fish on his farm.
