The Satu Hati (One Heart) project in Indonesia

To give back to the local community in Indonesia, POCARI SWEAT manufacturer and distributor P.T. Amerta Indah Otsuka, has implemented a social action program based on three core pillars: Satu Hati Cerdaskan Bangsa (One Heart for Education), Satu Hati Peduli Lingkungan (One Heart for Environment), and Satu Hati Sehatkan Bangsa (One Heart for Health).

Education of the children who will forge the future

P.T. Amerta Indah Otsuka: Satu Hati Academy

The 2006 Yogyakarta earthquake caused extensive damage, including the destruction of many schools. To help the affected schools rebuild, P.T. Amerta Indah Otsuka donated funds and held a charity concert. The company called for public support for its activities and received assistance from both the media and the Indonesian government. It went on to develop the charity project Satu Hati Cerdaskan Bangsa (One Heart for Education) and began new fundraising activities. This time, the donations were used to supply schools throughout Indonesia with books, and in 2008, the company was able to raise enough funds to build an elementary school library.
The initiative, aimed at furthering children's education, is now expanding beyond the construction of libraries and the donation of books. At the Kejayan Plant, a POCARI SWEAT & SOYJOY production plant in East Java, the company has set up a weekly Satu Hati Academy. After school, employees work in shifts to teach science,mathematics, English, and arts & crafts to local elementary school students. The company also supported several elementary schools near the plants by providing education fund for competent students.

Community-based environmental protection activities

Under the Satu Hati Peduli Lingkungan project (One Heart for Environment), the company carries out a range of activities including tree planting, coastal cleanup, and urban reforestation. In 2016, the company planted 12,500 pine trees on Mount Bromo, the source of the water used for POCARI SWEAT. In 2019, the company held a tree planting and adoption program at two locations, where the company's plants are located, namely at Halimun Salak National Park, West Java and Cowek Village, Pasuruan Regency, East Java. Both are the source of the city and the plants' water supply.
In addition, Cleaning Up Day and river cleaning activities are held around the villages in proximity to the Sukabumi and Kejayan plants. These activities aim to encourage the community to always protect their environment and to not litter. All these activities received endorsement and support of the government as well as local municipalities and environmental organizations.

Health promotion activities

The Satu Hati Sehatkan Bangsa project (One Heart for Health) encompasses a range of activities for residents of the areas near the plant with the goal of promoting good public health. The company also supports a monthly mother and child clinic near the Sukabumi and Kejayan plants where POCARI SWEAT is produced. At the clinic, volunteer staff from a local health center provide basic care to mothers and infants, to educate and promote good health of mothers and children around the plants. The company supports this initiative by helping the sustainable development of mother and child clinic through medical devices donations and volunteer staff trainings.
