As proud partners of LooLa Adventure Resorts, an award-winning eco-resort, FOCUS Adventure led a 200 strong group of employees from a local MNC to the sunny island of Bintan for a CSR project. Although 75% of our Earth consists of water, it remains a stark fact that only 1.5% remains drinkable.
Fighting through the sweltering conditions, our contingent laid the foundations for a sustainable water source for a local community where water had quickly become a scarce and expensive resource due to toxic conditions of existing wells. These Safe Water Gardens (SWGs) will provide a lifetime supply of clean water to aid the local village in their day-to-day lives.
Our passionate drive to help ensured that we were pushed to our limits and enabled us to finish the project ahead of schedule, allowing us some time to spend with local children at 2 primary schools, where we interacted via traditional arts & crafts, sports & activities, and even repair some roads to further enhance living conditions there.
All in all, it was an unforgettable experience for both ourselves and the local community, and we look forward to the next time we have an opportunity to make a meteoric impact on those less fortunate than ourselves.
