The Importance of Education In Life
A Youth Development Programme
Inner Wheel Club of Kuala Lumpur
24 January 2021
On 24 January 2021 afternoon, a talk on the topic of “The Importance of Education in Life” was initiated by the Inner wheel Club of Kuala Lumpur under the club's Youth Development Programme. This talk was organised in line with the aspirations of Dr Bina Vyas, President of IIW, and conducted through the Zoom platform.
The Club invited District Extension Chairman, Mrs Juanita Lee, and a newly inducted member Ms Lena Chua to be the guest speakers in this programme. It was an encouragement to see a total of 77 teenagers ranging from 15 to 18 years old attending the talk. They were from schools around the Klang Valley – Government, International, Private and Chinese Independent Schools. President of the Inner Wheel of Kuala Lumpur Caylice Sabado, PP Elena Teoh, PP Linda Lim and PP Datin Brenda were also present to lend their moral support.
The session began with President Caylice’s welcome speech, followed by DEC Mrs Juanita Lee who gave a Powerpoint overview of Inner Wheel (i.e. the largest women voluntary service organisation in the world) and highlighted about the scholarship programme offered by the Inner Wheel Club of Kuala Lumpur. Ms Lena Chua gave the participants a rundown on the types of educations, its importance and how it can help to advance their careers in the future.
It was truly an enlightening and informative 50-minutes talk. The students were grateful to be given an opportunity to attend the programme and we hope that many will benefit from it.
The talk ended with a vote of thanks to President Caylice Sabado, DEC Juanita Lee and Ms Lena Chua for putting this Zoom talk together.
