PT Freeport Indonesia, in partnership with the local government, has recently inaugurated a new school building for young children in the Banti village of Papua, Indonesia. The school building houses a new library in addition to classrooms for early childhood development.
PTFI invests in the future of the local community where it operates. From 1996 to 2016, the Freeport Partnership Fund for Community Development has invested more than $680 million in the local community. PTFI invests in infrastructure such as roads, a port, an airport, electrification and communications systems, schools, hospitals and community facilities.
