In order to enliven the 52nd Anniversary, Telkom held Telkom CSR Days which was held on Wednesday and Thursday, 12 - 13 July 2017 at 09.00 - 17.00 at Telkom Landmark Tower Area, Jakarta. CSR Days is the embodiment of TELKOM's 52nd anniversary theme, "Telkom Indonesia, For Indonesia". One of the events in CSR is a successful provision of assistance to develop and socialize the environment.

One of the beneficiaries was Erix Soekamti, known as Endank Soekamti band from Yogyakarta. Erix Soekamti is now known as a young man of Yogyakarta who has a high concern for the development of children's education through the establishment of DOES University. DOES University itself is a free school to print innovative, creative and independent individuals.

DOES University focus on animation, compositor, and 3D modeller training. The learning process at DOES University uses a quarantine system for 6 months, all the needs of the students (shelter, tools and learning media, as well as daily necessities such as, eating and drinking during the course) are borne by DOES University.

The funding of DOES University is self-made by Erix which, among other things, comes from the sale of merchandise which is the result of collaboration with many craftsmen around Yogyakarta, such as silver rings, bags, hats, and others. Thus the surrounding economy also moved.

Besides free of charge, DOES University will also provide teachers who are already competent in their field. Some public figures are teachers at DOES University. The first DOES University force in 2015 was attended by 10 students with different backgrounds and came from different regions, such as Jogja, Bandung, Surabaya, Balikpapan, Bali, and others.

In the future, Erix is committed to produce qualified DOES University students and can produce a worldwide work. In addition, Erix also creates an educational curriculum for one year. DOES University itself is more innovative and creative. In Erix's view creativity gives effect to the surrounding community, environment and industry.

One of the creativity of DOES University is in the utilization of social media, thanks to its activities as Vloger, Erix Soekamti and DOES University are now increasingly recognized. Thanks to the effort Erix Soekamti who want to teach regardless of one's background, make Erix become one of the beneficiaries of Telkom CSR Days 2017.
