70 | S P SETIA BERHAD GROUP | Annual Report 2014

corporate responsibility

III. business Review

The Foundation also provided assistance

to schools, helping them to create a

more conducive learning environment for

students. Its contributions range from

providing basic facilities like desks and chairs

to enhancements like covered shelters and

basketball courts. In SK Matunggong in Kota

Marudu, Sabah, the Foundation sponsored

the building of a hostel to accommodate 80

students from the interior.

Possibly the Foundation’s most interesting

contribution to education was the

sponsorship of the production of Malaysia’s

first sign language dictionary, Malaysian

Sign Language (MySL) or Kamus Bahasa

Isyarat Maaysia (BIM), which was created to

help Malaysia’s hearing impaired community

navigate the areas of communication and

education. This project was a joint effort

by the hearing impaired community and

Universiti Malaya’s faculty of Language and

Linguistics.

The Foundation also provided support to

other charities like Befrienders KL which

received a donation of a CCTV, autogate

and phone answering system that would

enhance the safety of the volunteers as well

as their services.

S P Setia’s auxiliary police force established

in 2013 continues to grow from strength

to strength. In the first quarter of 2014, a

further 87 auxiliary police personnel were

sent for the three-month training course at

PULAPOL conducted by PDRM.

This marks the second commissioning

ceremony held at Setia City Convention

Centre in Setia Alam. The first ceremony

held in June last year saw 113 members

passing out and deployed across all of S P

Setia’s projects in the Klang Valley, Johor

and Penang to tighten security in S P Setia’s

developments.

With the second passing out ceremony, the

total manpower of Polis Bantuan S P Setia

today stands at 200.

Community

Commitmentto Community

The S P Setia Foundation continued to do

excellent work in 2014. As always, its efforts

to promote education were exemplary. This

year, Setia Adoption Programme marked

its 13th year in existence by providing

assistance to more than 2,400 primary and

secondary school students from 119 schools

in Kuala Lumpur, Selangor, Johor, Penang,

Kedah, Perlis and Pahang. In recent years,

the programme has also extended its reach

to Sabah and Sarawak.

On top of our commitment to philanthropic

activities, S P Setia is also dedicated to

serve the community in which we operate.

The Group invested RM70 million to build

the Lekas-EcoHill Link which will connect

Setia EcoHill to the Lekas, South Klang

Valley Expressway (SKVE), Sistem Lingkaran

Lebuhraya Kajang (SILK), Projek Lebuhraya

Utara-Selatan (PLUS) and Lebuhraya

Damansara Puchong (LDP) highways.

Targeted to complete by mid-2015, the link

will shorten gap between Setia EcoHill in

Semenyih to Kuala Lumpur, which will take

approximately 15 minutes.

Setia Eco Glades in Cyberjaya was also

designed to include a highway which will

make the development the nearest gateway

in Cyberjaya to major highways such as

Maju Express Highway (MEX), North South

Central-Link (ELITE), LDP, SKVE and the B15

Road Extension through Dengkil, ensuring

utmost convenience and connectivity for

EcoHill communities.

Dedicated highway interchange to Setia Eco Glades

EcoHill Link closes the gap between Setia EcoHill

and Kuala Lumpur
