SMPN 181 Jakarta is a public junior high school that is located in Bendungan Hilir, South Jakarta. Built in 1976, this school suffers from insufficient classroom, toilet, canteen, garden, and school yard facilities. Almost all of its students come from underprivileged families with unemployed parents.
Through Embrace, Shangri-La’s Care for People Project, Shangri-La Hotel, Jakarta, has planned continuous activities for the long-term improvement of the school and its students.
Daily Life Quality Improvement
With full support from all staff and stakeholders, Shangri-La Hotel, Jakarta, is committed to conducting a long-term plan with SMPN 181 Jakarta. The programme includes regular activities to improve the school’s infrastructure, such as a cleaning day, a classroom make-over, repainting the building, initiatives for a green school, a school yard renovation, and fire life safety training. The hotel also aims to give scholarships to select students when they enroll at their preferred high school and an opportunity for the top graduates to continue their education with a hospitality diploma. Finally, some of the students will be hired as hotel staff at the end of the programme.
Earlier this year, Shangri-La Hotel, Jakarta launched the Green School Programme, which helped the students of SMPN 181 Jakarta learn to plant a vertical garden. The vertical garden was part of the CSR Environment initiative, which aims at helping the students become socially responsible, innovative and green-conscious. Soon, SMPN 181 Jakarta will undergo a classroom makeover. As part of the makeover, the school will receive new tables, chairs, and book shelves that will hopefully make the students more excited about learning.
