Starting from an idea to improve children’s welfare in the field of knowledge and to encourage children’s reading interest, the TAUZIA Hotels cluster in Jakarta and West Java has held a DONATE A BOOK & SHAPE A LIFE! Program. A book donation program, both new and unused books, which was donated to Rumah Baca Rita di Bandung dan Ruang Publik Terpadu Ramah Anak (RPTRA). This activity is in line with the TAUZIA Hotel program in the TAUZIA Equal Chance and supported by the Indonesian Street Children Organization Foundation (ISCO).
During July 2019, all TAUZIA Hotel clusters in Jakarta and West Java consisting of HARRIS VERTU & YELLO HOTEL Harmoni, HARRIS Hotel FX Sudirman, Pesona Alam Resorts & Spa, HARRIS Hotel Sentul City, HARRIS Hotels & Conventions Kelapa Gading, YELLO Manggarai, HARRIS Hotel & Conventions Bekasi, HARRIS Hotel Tebet Jakarta, HARRIS & POP! Hotels Citylink Bandung Festival, HARRIS Hotels & Conventions Ciumbuleuit, FOX HARRIS City Center Bandung, FOX HARRIS Lite Metro Indah Bandung, and YELLO Hotel Paskal Bandung invited all guests and employees to donate books, both new and unused books. In collaboration with Bumi Kardus, a business institution providing environmental friendly educational toys made from cardboard. Boxes provided by Bumi Kardus were distributed to all TAUZIA cluster hotels in Jakarta and West Java to hold books that would later be submitted to the Rumah Baca Rita and the ISCO-TAUZIA Equal Chance Foundation RPTRA.
Closely related to National Children’s Day, TAUZIA Hotel, which has long been committed to providing better education facilities to more than 5,000 street children and underprivileged people who are members of the ISCO Foundation through the TAUZIA Equal Chance program, also held Table Manner training activities and motivations for teens from ISCO Foundation. On August 18, 2019, books would be handed over to the Rumah Baca Rita and several local libraries. On the same occasion, TAUZIA Hotel West Java will also hold reading and storytelling. As well as doodling activities on the piggy bank made by Bumi Kardus to hone creativity with children in need.
It is hoped that through this series of activities, TAUZIA Hotel will participate in forming young people with extensive knowledge and fondness of reading. Towards a better future with TAUZIA Hotel!
