Scholarships were awarded to 64 high school students from 20 schools.

According to him, the apprenticeship program for vocational school students who receive beasiwa as a form of support of government vocational programs.

Tonni Victor explained that the student internship will be conducted at Tanoto partner companies such as Asian Agri.

"The apprenticeship of the apprentices is tailored to the needs of the company in need, so there needs to be further coordination," he said.

Asian Agri Group Head of Common Services Hadi Susanto admitted to supporting the apprenticeship program of students of SMK Tanoto after the previous program for undergraduate or undergraduate level.

"It must be admitted that all companies have difficulty getting ready-made workers, so the SMK apprenticeship program is worth supporting," he said.

By 2016, the drop-out rate in secondary education is 147,865. One of the reasons why many drop out students is an economic factor.

"Therefore, Tanoto increasingly want to contribute to help the cost of education through beasiawa," he said.
