Supporting Community Cohesion
We thus aim to cultivate a good relationship with local communities by preserving and developing their traditional culture.
Being aware of a pressing need for Islamic religious facilities in the communities around our mine site at Tabalong, Adaro three years ago began constructing an Islamic Center there, and we were pleased to see it opened in 2013.
The building was planned to be a center for Islamic culture and religious activities for Tabalong and other neighboring districts, and consists of a grand mosque, hajj practice facility consisting of Tawaf, Jumroh and Sai, and other facilities to support Islamic evangelical activities.
Realizing that its successful use depends on management competency and dedication, Adaro began preparing its management team in mid-2011 in collaboration with the Tabalong community and Indonesian Council of Ulemas (Majelis Ulama Indonesia). This team now manages this iconic center in support of the vision of Tabalong district: “A healthy, intelligent and prosperous religion-based Tabalong.”
In preparing for the launch of this event, members of the local community and volunteers conducted extensive research into the Dayak Deah tribe culture, and planned the event with the supervision of Adaro. We plan to continue to hold this event regularly and turn it into a tourist attraction that will foster the tourism industry and contribute to local economic growth.
Adaro also has a project under way to build a new hygenic traditional market and a multipurpose building in Paringin district. These facilities are expected to contribute to the social and economic growth of Balangan regency and the surrounding areas.
As a day-to-day expression of our intention to be both a good corporate citizen and a living part of the communities we touch, Adaro management and staff also involve themselves as much as possible through active participation in social activities such as religious activities during Ramadhan, Eid-ul Adha and on Social Solidarity Day.
Sustainability ReportsAdaro Indonesia’s presence in South Kalimantan has influenced the current economic, social and natural environment of the province down to village level, and the company recognizes that there is a responsibility to give back to these local communities to ensure the development of a better life in the surrounding areas.
