KUALA LUMPUR: Mitsubishi Motors Malaysia (MMM), the official distributor of Mitsubishi Motors vehicles in Malaysia, has donated a Triton 4X4 pick-up truck to Dignity Farm School, a one-stop holistic and community learning center for the underprivileged urban poor.
MMM chief executive officer Tomoyuki Shinnishi handed over the pick-up truck early this month to the farm school in Bentong, Pahang.
It will be used for the farm’s daily operations, and to commute the Orang Asli to schools where they are given transformative youth education programmes in community building, natural agriculture and skills development.
Shinnishi said the company was happy to work with the Dignity Farm School where its skills and knowledge are connected and taught from a wellspring of sources and experiences, combining practical skills and theory in a farm setting.
“This in return will also prepare the underprivileged children in the future to enter an agricultural and tourism workforce requiring both innovation and manpower,” he said.
Shinnishi said the Triton has passed endurance tests and is suitable for the farm school located in Bentong's remote areas where a 4X4 is required.
Mitsubishi Motors' corporate social responsibility (CSR) vision for 2021 is ‘Inspiring Lives Today for a Greater Future’, while its mission is to implement CSR activities that provides aid to support underprivileged children, and to collaborate with NGOs in promoting a sustainable economy, society, and environment.
