MAP Sustainability Initiatives

Initiatives for Community Engagement Responsibility

For MAP, community development activities are not a mere obligation. The surrounding communities supports us by becoming customers, as well as being employees. Therefore, growing together with the communities around the company is the key to sustainable business growth. Our concern for the surrounding communities is not only shown through the fulfillment of daily needs alone. We focus on the fields of education and health because these two factors are the key to achieving happiness.

Local Labor and Products

As we explained earlier, our stores employees come from the surrounding communities. Some of the positions in our outlets, such as store managers, may comre from other regions, but we provide various training programs so that employees who join us will be ready to occupy managerial positions. Our Alunalun Indonesia concept also dedicates the entire store area focusing on local products.

Quality Education for the Community

Quality education is the key to alleviating poverty. Below are our initiatives in providing quality education:

Rumah Belajar Anak Bintang (RAJAB)

In collaboration with the Karang Taruna Jawa Barat, RAJAB is a house of learning that focuses on character education starting from the golden age of child development (10-15 years). Education programs at RAJAB are provided free of charge to children from underprivileged families from 4th Grade Primary School to 3rd Grade Middle School. Character education at RAJAB is implemented through mastery of school subjects (Mathematics, Science and English), cultural education, field trips and inspiration classes.

The program, which started in 2014, is now available in 7 villages in the West Java region, namely:

  • Cijemit
  • Sukawening
  • Gempolsari
  • Kamojing
  • Panyocokan
  • Kutawaringin
  • Muaragembong

To ensure character development is achieved, RAJAB also involves parents of RAJAB students, as well as building the capacity of RAJAB mentors, and collaborates with local communities (through the participation of youth from Karang Taruna, West Java).

2020 is a year full of challenges due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Through the year, RAJAB communicated and followed instructions from the local government in carrying out its activities. When learning and teaching activities cannot be carried out face-to-face, RAJAB continues to guide the students through the Whatsapp group. When learning can be carried out face-to-face, RAJAB also carries out strict health protocols to maintain the safety of RAJAB students.

Aside from character building through mastery of the field of study, below are other character building activities carried out at RAJAB in 2020:

Introduction to basic exercise movements

RAJAB, in collaboration with PT Map Aktif Adiperkasa Tbk (MAPA), a subsidiary of MAP, teach basic movements that can help RAJAB students to stay healthy amid the pandemic. MAPA has 14 videos introducing sports movements that were made in collaboration with Yayasan Olahraga Anak Nusantara (YOAN). These movements were taught to RAJAB mentors and the mentors taught these movements to 143 RAJAB students.

Inspiration Class with Triyaningsih

Triyaningsih is a national marathon athlete who is often dubbed the Queen of Long Distance Running. Triyaningsih is an athlete who repeatedly contributed gold medals at the South East Asean Games, and represented Indonesia in the Olympics. In these sessions, Triyaningsih shared experiences with RAJAB students, which include how to pursue their passion for running, steps to become a national athlete, challenges and benefits in a career as a national athlete. Apart from adding to the knowledge of RAJAB students, this session also explained the importance of exercising to maintain health, especially during this pandemic. 71 students and 15 RAJAB mentors attended the event.

Opening of the first Starbucks Community Store in Indonesia

The Community Store was established in Tanah Abang, Jakarta and inaugurated in February 2020. Although Tanah Abang is one of the largest textile markets in Southeast Asia, thousands of children from the Tanah Abang community have limited access to education and work. This store aims to help provide access to quality education and jobs for the people of Tanah Abang.

The Community Store provides a special space that can be used for training and self-development activities for children from the local community. Starbucks collaborates with Sahabat Anak Foundation and Indonesia Street Children Organization to provide quality training activities in this special space. Part of the sales from the store will also be used to support the implementation of training activities in the special space. In addition, almost all baristas who work at this Community Store come from Tanah Abang.

Unfortunately, not long after the store was inaugurated, the Covid-19 pandemic hit Indonesia. Throughout 2020, only two activities were carried out, namely a personal hygiene class, which explained that hygiene and health were two interrelated factors, and a dance skill class.
