– Supporting communities in times of crisis is part of Boeing’s legacy.

Supporting communities in times of crisis is part of Boeing’s legacy. It is who we are. Through world wars, natural disasters and now a pandemic, we have been there and will continue to be there — to meet the challenges of the moment and help people and communities in most need.

The Covid-19 pandemic’s economic, emotional and health toll were felt acutely. Adjusting and adapting to the new norms, Boeing employees shifted their focus — with safety as a top priority — to virtual volunteering and the development of digital resources to meet the needs of community partners worldwide.

Boeing charitable investments span 51 countries around the globe where we collaborate with more than 13,000 community partners in projects focusing among others in STEM Education, work force development, environmental sustainability, veterans’ workforce transition as well as recovery and rehabilitation programs.

In Malaysia, Boeing continues to support local NGO Network of Urban Rural Innovators (NURI) on environmental projects through recycling and reusable methods. On our project relates to the BAKO village which is about 37km north of Kuching City, Sarawak. The village which was built along the Bako River is a great resource for food for the villagers and habitat for wildlife. The Bako National Park which is located in this area is a major attraction for local and foreign tourists. There is a great need to protect and keep the environment clean as well as to preserve biodiversity and nature around Bako. The most crucial issue is effective waste management because the village is separated from the mainland and does not receive adequate waste collection from local council.
