EQUIPPED FOR YET ANOTHER YEAR
To school children, the New Year brings with it much excitement as it means another year of learning new things and fun at school with friends. For one lucky group of students though, there’s also the anticipation of being well equipped to start the new year, thanks to the new gear gifted to them from Better Brighter.
Our ‘Back To School’ efforts have been running since 2013, and it has since assisted 11,908 students in 48 areas to head back to school in full vigour.
This year, we aim to distribute even more school equipment to students across Malaysia. These students will receive a pair of uniform, shoes, socks, school bag and other school necessities to help kick start their schooling year.
Coming from underprivileged backgrounds, these students are not accustomed to starting the new school year with brand new items. Getting hand-me-downs from siblings or through kind-hearted individuals is usually the norm for them. For these kids, being decked out in new clothes would surely bring an extra spring in their steps as they head into school on that first day.
With the collaboration of partners, this 2018 we will continue to assist at least 7,600 students between the ages of seven to twelve, so that they too can be well-prepared for the new schooling year and have a much more comfortable and conducive environment to study in.
