          S P Setia Foundation

          In an industry that revolves around bricks and
          mortar, S P Setia is more than just a builder -
          we strive to connect with communities and
          create sustainable environments that enrich
          lives. Through the S P Setia Foundation,
          our corporate social responsibility (“CSR”)
          arm, the Group focuses its social efforts on
          education and aiding the less fortunate.

          Setia Caring School Programme

          In an effort to help children receive a
          holistic education, the S P Setia Foundation
          launched  the  Setia  Caring  School
          Programme in April 2015. The programme
          aims to nurture a more empathetic, morally-
          grounded society rooted in the core idea      Students and volunteers from the Selangor Setia Caring School Programme visited
                                                        Rumah Warga Emas Klang in conjunction with the Chinese New Year Celebration
          of cultivating a “caring society”. Under this
          programme, the S P Setia Foundation adopts
          underperforming schools to cultivate future
          leaders  who  are  not  only  academically
          successful, but also grounded in positive
          moral values and ethics, with empathy for
          all in a multi-cultural community.

          At the start of the programme, the
          Foundation adopted three underperforming
          schools in the Klang Valley, followed by
          schools in Johor and Penang. The number
          of adopted schools increased to nine in

          Pendidikan Sultan Idris to carry out 14
          projects  focusing on the Six  Caring Areas
          for students from the nine schools. Various
          programmes such as camping, workshops,
          field  trips,  environmental  protection
          workshops and mural-making classes
          were organised for these students with the
          intention of nurturing and exposing them to
          positive values.
