Every child has the right to education to develop skills that will help them shape their future.

Golden Agri-Resources (GAR) believes that education is key to breaking the cycle of poverty and unlocking the potential of Indonesia. GAR is determined to improve access to education for children so they can attend school regularly, close to home. We help build schools, toilets, libraries, and more.

We ensure that each estate has educational facilities from kindergarten to sixth-grade schooling, supporting the Indonesian Ministry of Education’s requirement for nine years of compulsory education for every child. We also ensure that each region in which we operate has a junior high school that meets the needs of our employees and local communities.

Children of both permanent employees and casual workers living on our estates receive free education from kindergarten to junior high school and heavily subsidised higher education. Children living around our estates also receive heavily subsidised education at all levels. To further encourage our employees to send their children to school, we provide free school bus services for all students.

Other key education programmes supported by GAR include:
