PROJECT 1: Education
16th July – 29th July, Kuala Lumpur.
Volunteers went to the overpopulated regions in Kuala Lumpur to teach primary school students English. They assisted the teachers in teaching the students during class. They also formulated lesson and activity plans for students with the teachers’ approval. After school, our volunteers provided tuition and interactive workshops for these children to increase their interest in English. They also recruited and helped secondary school students who became their ‘mentees’. This was done in the hopes of inspiring the older students to set up a sustainable programme to teach these children. We hope that by doing this, we can ensure the sustainability of our work.
We were featured on The Star newspaper!
PROJECT 2: Health Awareness
31st July – 13th August, Kuala Lumpur.
Volunteers helped out at the Spastic Children’s Association of Selangor and the Federal Territory (SCASFT) where children born with spastic cerebral palsy go to learn and rehabilitate with various types of physiotherapy. We assisted staff at the centre in their work with the children and their parents. We went to the city centre and held a small campaign to fundraise and raise awareness about spastic cerebral palsy and SCASFT. We also recruited secondary school students who eventually became our ‘mentees’. Our aim was to inspire them to volunteer at SCASFT to ensure sustainability of our work.
