IMPROVING THE LIFE OF STUDENTS IN LOCKDOWN
Inner Wheel Club of Bangsar
27 September 2021
The Inner Wheel Club of Bangsar came up with another timely act to assist parents and children who face challengers in accessing online education during the Movement Control Order period.
In July 2021, IWC of Bangsar launched an appeal for laptops, smartphones and tablets to be donated to underprivileged children to help them continue their education via the online learning platform (PdP) launched by the Education Ministry for government schools.
This initiative resulted in cash donations from well-wishers as well as IWC of Bangsar members, which made the purchase of five brand new tablets possible.
Five primary school students in the B40 group were identified by the management of a School in Sepang with the assistance of a local community leader to receive the tablets.
As education is one of the focal areas of Inner Wheel this term, IWC of Bangsar was certainly glad to help avail these children an opportunity to continue their online classes more effectively.
