SOBIS PAMMASE (Social Enterprise Program)


The most significant indication of success for the early childhood development program is the school’s ability to fund its own activities in the region. PTTEP Indonesia no longer have operation in the West Sulawesi area, thus it is important to support the sustainability of SIOLA program as exit strategy with the current concept of entrepreneurship that is popular in Indonesian society.

Principally, social entrepreneurship is the idea to solve social problems with advanced business approaches.


About the Program

Realizing the importance of sustainability for the on going early childhood development program in West Sulawesi, PTTEP Indonesia initiated a social business entity named Sobis Pammase. Once again a pioneer for such initiative in West Sulawesi, the program will manage all priority commodities in Mamuju and Polewali Mandar as well as market the products in order to gain profit and provide benefit for the community and society in general.


Feasibility Study

To ensure that the concept of social enterprise can be implemented in West Sulawesi, specifically where the SIOLA schools are established, a feasibility study was conducted in late 2017. The study was conducted in order to map out the economic potential of communities that are involved in the areas of agriculture, plantations, and fisheries.


Result: Based on the study results, there were several commodities worth investing in. However, after careful consideration and discussion with PTTEP management, the company decided to support the empowerment of shrimp vaname and trigona bees in Polewali Mandar area, as well as poultry program of chicken and ducks at 3 (three) locations in Mamuju area, as the foundation of business start up for social enterprise program.


Business Partnership Selection

After the completion of feasibility study and short listed the most suitable business units to support, the next step was to establish the appropriate organization to manage and run the program.

Considering various pros and cons on the type of organization, it was decided that an association is the most appropriate, as it is not purely business-oriented and the articles of association (regulations that govern the association) are created according to its goals, vision, and mission, based on the organization’s needs.


Association of Sobis Pammase

Association of Sobis Pammase (Perkumpulan Sobis Pammase) was legally established on 6 June 2018 in Mamuju, West Sulawesi – Indonesia, as an association that focuses on social business as a means to drive the early childhood development program (SIOLA Program) in West Sulawesi towards sustainability.

In September 2018, PTTEP Indonesia and Sobis Pammase officially signed an MoU regarding collaboration for selected commodities. As of today, the agreement between PTTEP and Sobis Pammase has been extended until 2023 to be a 5-year commitment.
