Eko Yuli Irawan, Asian Games 2018 weightlifting gold medalist, attended the opening of the library at SDN 011 Sering Barat in Pangkalan Kerinci, Riau in Indonesia on September 22, 2018.

Tanoto Foundation was also an official sponsor and supporter of the Indonesian team during the 2018 Asian Games.

“I am very happy to be part of the # 1Emas1Perpustakaan program from Tanoto Foundation. I am even more pleased that I can contribute in supporting the improvement of the quality of education, especially in developing the interests and reading abilities of Indonesian children,” said Eko Yuli.
