QNET treated 50 children from the Al-Andalusia Foundation, an Islamic orphanage in Jakarta, to food, fun and games as part of the breaking of fast event during the holy month of Ramadan.

The event, which was carried out under the QNET Pays Forward initiative reflects the company’s strong loyalty and willingness to participate in community efforts in Indonesia.

During the event, the QNET staff and the children played games and took part in a drawing competition.

“In QNET, we believe we must first raise ourselves before we can help others. Thus, our philosophy, RYTHM (Raise Yourself To Help Mankind) is embodied in our philanthropic initiatives in different fields, such as education, environment, culture and charity,” said QNET Indonesia’s Corporate Communications Manager Wita Dahlan.

 

 

Wita said QNET, a global leader and pioneer in direct selling on an eCommerce platform, had already conducted many CSR programmes in Indonesia.

“We have previously provided aid to tsunami victims in Aceh and Medan in North Sumatra, and earthquake victims in Yogyakarta, Central Jakarta and Padang in West Sumatra.

“We have also given scholarships to 200 children who are tsunami victims in Aceh and Medan for three consecutive years, and donated computers for schools in Aceh,” she said.

Moreover, QNET representatives also went to Yogyakarta soon after the earthquake in 2006 to provide food, tents and home supplies to the victims there. The company also provided aid to the Yogyakarta Government after building a kindergarten in Pandak Village, Pijenan.
