Great Heart Charity had sponsored SK Seafield 3 for Rm8000 to help the primary student there to enlarged their school canteen. When Great Heart first heard of the school principal saying that the school canteen is over-occupied and the students needed to sit on the floor to have their meal, we could not believe what we just heard. It is really heartbreaking for us to even imagine what the student had gone through, to have their meal on the dirty floor because there isnt enough space in the Canteen.
To cultivate a caring society, charity should be considered as a form of education. The implementation of charity cultures into schools serves to act as a kick start for students to organize community projects voluntarily while enhancing their self-development. Recently, Great Heart Charity has organized a charity seminar talk in Chong Hwa high school with the participation of 54 students representing from 33 different societies and clubs.
Great Heart Charity Association has recently conducted “You and Me Educational Program” sharing session in three Culinary institutions: Global EDU Training Centre (Klang), ASEAN Culinary Academy (Setia Alam) and ASEAN Hospitality and Tourism College (Morib). A total of 180 students have participated in the session and actively shared their opinions on “What charity means to you” and charity works. Understanding their strength and ability, most of them offered to contribute to charity with their culinary skills apart from contributing in terms of time and monetary support.
Last Friday, You and Me Educational Program was conducted in Taylor’s University Lakeside campus. The attendees were lively and bright students from Taylor’s University Pharmacy Students’ Society (TuPSS). Through this sharing session, the students are made aware of the role they can play in charity. Many great ideas were brought up in the sharing session to address the social issues most important to them.
“Charity is about creating equality among the people. The world is unconcerned and selfish and that we have to take the lead to change the people and the world”. Taking the lead is indeed the result we wish to develop on the students after every You & Me Educational Program.
