Supports for PAUD & Daycare Tunas Muda IKKT Bekasi from ACE and Kawan Lama Group
According to a 2019 survey, one in four children in Indonesia suffers from stunting or delayed growth and development. The cause is malnutrition and brain stimulants, especially during the golden period, the first five years of children. As a form of commitment to reduce stunting cases, the government has issued Presidential Regulation number 72 of 2021 concerning the Acceleration of Stunting Reduction, with a target of reducing stunting prevalence to 14% in 2024 and a sustainable development target in 2030 based on achievements in 2024.
As a form of participation in government regulation, Kawan Lama Group made a donation of educational equipment and children's playground, to PAUD and Tunas Muda IKKT Daycare in Jati Makmur Bekasi. The donation was distributed from March 2020 until the inauguration of the institution on October 1, 2021.
