Corporate Social Responsibility
JTK contributes regularly as part of its corporate social responsibility. Dr. Kriban, managing director of JTK, through the Rotary Club of Damansara has been involved in organising a number of events geared to assisting communities in uplifting socio-economics and providing the basic tools for livelihood.
At the Rotary Club's fundraising charity and installation dinner on 30 June 2007, JTK contributed the sum of US$1500 by way of advertisements and dinner tables.
In December 2005, Dr Kriban joined a delegation from the Rotary Club of Greentown to distribute books and other educational items to Tonly Barty School near Phnom Pehn. The books were for a modest school library which had been set up a year earlier. During the visit, rainwater harvesting and solar-powered electricity were identified as potential projects to be taken up for the school in the future.
Another delegation of the Damansara Rotary Club and the Interact Club of the elc International School was led by Dr Kriban to Cambodia in July 2007 to visit a landmine victim centre in Siam Reap. This visit included a fact finding
tour to draw up a strategy for rainwater harvesting and filter systems for Cambodian villages and rural schools. During the visit US $6027 raised by the elc interactors was handed over to Anchor Association for the Disabled an NGO providing shelter and training to land mine victims. See full report enclosed.
More recently, JTK has been involved in upgrading a rural classroom in an estate school in Batang Berjuntai. JTK staff member Mr Nagenthiran organised delivery of furniture for the school needs. The JTK team has also been providing support to identify the building upgrading works required and the engineering solutions for Montfort Boys Town in Shah Alam, an organisation which has been equipping poor and needy boys and girls with living skills since 1959.
JTK will continue to identify and support worthy projects assisting the underprivileged, as a contribution to society.
