Mah Sing Foundation (MSF), Mah Sing Group Berhad (Mah Sing) Corporate Social Responsibility arm, recently collected RM6,000 worth of stationery for 10 Orang Asli pre-schools located in Pahang, Perak, and Kelantan.
Carried out by donations from Mah Sing’s staff in conjunction with the Hari Raya celebration, the initiative is also part of the Empowered 2 Teach programme which was done in collaboration with SUKA Society.
Dato’ Indera Syed Norulzaman, MSF’s Chairman said, “Our Foundation believes that investment in a better tomorrow can be achieved when every child is provided with the opportunity to thrive and fulfil their potential. Through SUKA Society’ Empowered 2 Teach programme, these Orang Asli children will be able to obtain basic literacy and mathematics skills which are very important when they attend Standard One of national primary school as current syllabus assumes that students have it. We are also very thankful to the Mah Sing employees for donating the stationaries which will benefit the 10 Orang Asli pre-schools.”
In the spirit of giving back, MSF continued its commitment to enhance the well-being of underserved children in rural communities by donating RM16,800 for the running of one-pre-school in Kampung Enching, Kelantan.
The donation will be used to aid the Orang-Asli pre-schoolers to be well prepared in primary schools. Apart from providing financial assistance to the children, this programme also serves as a sustainable outreach – benefiting the community as the teachers are from the Orang Asli Community.
SUKA Society is an NGO that was set up in 2010 for the sole purpose of protecting and preserving the best interest of children.
Present at the handover of the collected stationery and cheque ceremony were Mah Sing Group’s Senior General Manager – Strategic Communication, Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability, Ms Lyanna Tew and SUKA Society’s Executive Director, Mr. Anderson Selvasegaram
