Indofood Rumah Pintar (“Rumpin”)
Building Human Capital

The Agribusiness Group has a community development program, whereby RUMPINs or nonformal education facilities are established in its plantations across Sumatra and Kalimantan. RU MPINs are equipped with computers, audio-visual equipment, a library, a playground and an area for handicraft activities where locals are taught to make woven goods, patchwork bags and flowers from recycled materials to supplement family income.

Besides promoting entrepreneurship and eco-trade, RUMPINs have enabled pre-school children to acquire reading and writing skills, provided free tuition to high school students taking state university entrance exams, and preserved culture and heritage through traditional dance and music lessons.
