In another corporate social responsibility initiative to help the underprivileged, Mitsubishi Motors Malaysia (MMM) has donated a Triton to Dignity Farm School. Located in Bentong, Pahang, Dignity Farm School is a one-stop holistic and community learning centre serving the underprivileged and urban poor.
The Mitsubishi Triton 4×4 pick-up truck will be used for the farm’s daily operations, and to ferry the Orang Asli to schools where they are given transformative youth education programs grounded in community building, natural agriculture, and skills development.
“In line with the Malaysian government’s efforts to reopen schools soon with tightened and updated standard operating procedures (SOPs) to adhere to, we at Mitsubishi Motors feel it is a strategic time post-lockdown to relook into how we can do more for the underprivileged and indigenous community in terms of education and health. We are happy to work with the Dignity Farm School a place where skills and knowledge are connected and taught from a wellspring of sources and experiences, combining practical skills and theory in a farm setting. This in return will also prepare the underprivileged children in the future to enter an agricultural and tourism workforce requiring both innovation and manpower,” said Tomoyuki Shinnishi, Chief Executive Officer, Mitsubishi Motors Malaysia, who presented the pick-up truck to the centre.
“Though the school is located in the remote areas of Bentong where a 4×4 is required, the Triton pick-up truck had passed many endurance tests. We hope that it will assist the Dignity Farm School well in many of their adventures to come, no matter the terrain,” he added.
Mitsubishi Motors’ CSR vision for 2021 is ‘Inspiring Lives Today for a Greater Future’. MMM aims to implement CSR activities that provide aid to support underprivileged children, and to collaborate with NGOs in promoting a sustainable economy, society, and environment.
As part of the company’s various and ongoing COVID-19 aid efforts, Mitsubishi Motors had also donated a Box of Hope, containing necessities and food to the B40 group in Malaysia. This effort will benefit more than 150 families across the nation.
