Coca-Cola Opens New Learning Lounge in Jakarta

Coca-Cola Learning LoungeCoca-Cola continues to make  social investments with its new Learning Lounge in Jakarta, Indonesia developed in partnership with Dewi Hughes International Foundation, which shares the corporation’s vision in promoting learning and reading habits to Indonesian youth. The Lounge is designed to provide a modern space for Jakarta’s youth to gather as a center for learning activities. It is equipped with books and IT facilities, providing a variety of information on relevant issues such as the environment, active and healthy living, and skill building.

Since 2000, Coca-Cola has been successfully developing the Learning Center program, which turns conventional public libraries into centers of active learning for local communities. To date, the Coca-Cola Foundation Indonesia has developed 33 community learning centers across 14 provinces in Indonesia, benefiting 5 million people annually.

“We believe that youth have the potential to be agents of change,” Titie Sadarini, Chief Executive of Coca-Cola Foundation Indonesia stated. However, there are few infrastructures for them to maximize this potential. Continuing the success of the Learning Center program, we are proud to expand the concept for urban youth community and provide them with facilities and inspiring programs that will support positive learning activities for them.”
