APP empowers local people to be able to take control of enhancing their quality of life through open access to education for all through a series of scholarships for all levels of education. From elementary school to the university level, APP provides necessities such as adequate facilities and infrastructure, transportation and school supplies.

In addition to supporting education activities in nearby areas, some of APP’s mills also provide ‘on the job’ training programs where universities and vocational high schools from the surrounding areas can send their students to learn first-hand about the pulp and paper making industry under the guidance of skilled and experienced practitioners.
