QNET’s philanthropic arm, RYTHM Foundation, recently collaborated with the ASA Foundation, an education and empowerment NGO that works with local schools and community-based projects to create sustainable behavior change, to develop a sports-based social intervention program. The program is designed to focus on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal (UN SDG) 4 of quality education, for vulnerable youth and adults in Indonesia.
This three-year program works to promote gender equality, self confidence, physical activity, healthy behaviors and positive attitude changes through sports for youth and young adults. The collaborative charitable campaign was recognized at the 2021 Indonesian SDGs Award (ISDA) as a Gold winner.
“RYTHM Foundation has been our beacon of hope through the toughest times guiding us in serving the communities in which we operate,” said Malou Caluza, CEO of QNET. “With support and guidance from RYTHM we were able to reach out and help vulnerable communities in more than 30 countries affected by COVID-19 this past year. In addition to this award-winning program, the partnership with ASA Foundation has allowed us to successfully deliver knowledge and awareness of COVID-19 virus prevention and health and sanitation measures using a virtual learning platform, to over 25,000 students across Indonesia.”
RYTHM Foundation also previously partnered with the ASA Foundation for a year-long inclusive women empowerment and education development project across Subang, West Java, Indonesia, reaching 30 schoolteachers and more than 5,000 youth.
