Penan Women Project
Paramount Supports the Empowerment of Penan Women
At Paramount Corporation Berhad, corporate social responsibility is an important aspect of our business. As a homegrown company with close to 50 years of business involvement in Malaysia, we are committed to utilising our talents and resources to make a real and sustainable difference in our communities.
Driven by our vision to be an innovative market leader in businesses that benefit society, we are actively bringing this vision to life – focusing on small local businesses and communities-in-need, to help them grow and prosper.
These beautiful handwoven bags made by Penan women have been commissioned by Paramount as corporate gifts for our valued customers and business partners. It marks the first time that we are supporting the Penan Women Project (PWP), in collaboration with the 10 Ringgit Club, a non-profit organisation that serves the educational needs of marginalised children in northern Sarawak.
Through this project, Paramount is able to contribute in a small way towards making the lives of these families better.
The regular income the women earn through this effort enables them to put food on the table, send their children to school, and source for what their families need – water, electricity, medicine and shelter. Most importantly, it gives them a sense of dignity and self-worth as these women slowly recognise that they have a voice and an important role to play in the Penan community.
