Program Dermasiswa My Brighter Future

Education

My Brighter Future (MyBF) is a conditional bursary programme open to Bumiputera and non-Bumiputera students from the lowest-income families who have received an offer to pursue further studies in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) or Technology and Vocational Education Training (TVET) courses at selected public universities (IPTA). MyBF programme candidates are selected by the Ministry of Education (MOE) through Unit Pusat Universiti (UPU) which matches the eKasih database from the Prime Minister’s Department Maintenance Unit on the main admission session to IPTA annually.

The launching ceremony of Dermasiswa My Brighter Future programme was officiated by Y. Bhg. Tan Sri Leo Moggie, Chairman of Tenaga Nasional Berhad on 29 August 2018. The ceremony was completed with a symbolic session of submitting the certificate to 10 MyBF programme recipients.

Criteria or eligibility:

  • Candidates who have been offered to further their studies in a course identified by TNB/YTN through UPU.
  • Candidates are in the lowest household income group as stipulated by TNB’s policy, priority is given to students who are registered with the eKasih database.

TNB through Yayasan Tenaga Nasional is confident that this programme is one of the most effective approaches to lift people in this country out of poverty by empowering their living standards through educational opportunities. The bursary is also seen to reduce the burden of the recipient’s family to cover their child’s study costs which will then lift their families out of poverty.

MyBF Student Gathering

This ceremony aims to provide information to MyBF recipients on policies, guidelines and responsibilities as students. In addition, this event was an introductory session between the top management of TNB and YTN with the students of MyBF.

Baiti Jannati TNB

Community

A longtime wish of 62 families to have a place to call their own has now been fulfilled under Tenaga Nasional Bhd’s Baiti Jannati project.

Federal Territories Minister Khalid Abd Samad said this strategic partnership between the government and the corporate sector, has brought tremendous benefit to residents and effectively handled the issue of urban poor.

He said the Baiti Jannati project provided a comfortable place of living which is the basis to the families’ harmony.

“It is our aim to provide a comfortable place to live for the disabled, the underprivileged, the single mothers and the asnaf (those deserving of tithe). We hope more Government-Linked Companies would come forward to follow TNB’s lead,” he said after handing over the houses for recipients in the Federal Territory, under the Projek Baiti Jannati Wilayah Persekutuan 2019 at the Kompleks Sukan Pantai Ecopark Lembah Pantai.

Better Brighter Vision

Community

Two hundred and ninety-two visually impaired students from the B40 group in two schools in the Lembah Pantai constituency now have ‘brighter’ futures, after receiving spectacles through a new aid programme.

The fortunate students from Sekolah Kebangsaan Bukit Pantai and Sekolah Kebangsaan Bukit Bandaraya received the aid through a Corporate Social Responsibility pilot programme called ‘Better. Brighter. Vision’. The effort by Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB) became possible with help from The Tun Hussein Onn National Eye Hospital.

Under the programme, a total of 4,289 students from five schools were selected. They were put through two stages of screening to determine eligibility and need and attended a briefing session on eyecare, while eye screening tests were conducted by a team from the Tun Hussein Onn National Eye Hospital.

My Brighter Future

Education

Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail has urged the younger generation to equip themselves with technical knowledge, soft skills and emotional intelligence to face future challenges.

“Communications, being agile and having the ability to evaluate and adapt are skills that are considered important today.

“As such, I urge the scholarship recipients (younger generation) to continue to develop their soft skills, strengthen their moral values as well as religious beliefs to become an ethical person,” she said when launching Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB)’s My Brighter Future (MyBF) sponsorship programme at Politeknik Sultan Salahuddin Abdul Aziz Shah.

Present were TNB chairman Tan Sri Leo Moggie and TNB president and chief executive officer Amir Hamzah Azizan.

Meanwhile, Dr Wan Azizah lauded the MyBF programme describing it as a proactive measure to help families from the low-income group get out of poverty status.

“I was informed that TNB would expand the scope of MyBF programme to students in Technical and Vocational Education and Training institutions, Malaysia Technical University Network, polytechnics and community colleges.

“It is an appropriate measure as many students from the B40 group will further their studies in the institutions,” she said

The scholarship was established as a result of TNB’s board of directors’ vision to create a special assistance scheme for students from low income (B40) families, to pursue their studies in the fields of STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) and Technical and Vocational Education Training (TVET).

Our Nation’s Future in Energy

Environment

For us, the true measure of progress lies in the consistent delivery of a better quality of life. As we continue to innovate to bring about greater comfort and convenience to our nation, we also try to do our part for the people – whether it is making education more accessible, supporting the economically challenged communities or cultivating a more active lifestyle.

But above all, we are most passionate about achieving environmental sustainability, without which none of our earlier efforts would truly be of any impact in the long run. That was the premise behind our latest crusade – the Manjung 5 power plant.

As the second ultra-supercritical (USC) coal-fired power plant in Southeast Asia (the other being its sister project, Manjung 4), Manjung 5 is capable of generating 1,000MW of lean electricity. To put it in perspective, the plant provides power for two million households, and together with the other Manjung power plants, it now supplies up to 23% of Peninsular Malaysia’s power needs.

More importantly, however, is the fact that we have been able minimise the cost of producing electricity, lower carbon emission levels, and still maintain efficiency at 40% with this initiative. By introducing clean carbon technology, and the latest in Environmental Monitoring Systems, Manjung 5 hopes to contribute towards our nation’s pledge to cut carbon emission levels by 45% before the year 2030.

Launched on 28 September 2017, the RM1 billion Manjung 5 power plant has been in operation for nearly half a year. Since its completion, the plant has created 1,200 new job opportunities, which has indirectly resulted in an increase in development and property value in the area, while also allowing small local businesses to thrive.

As an infra-rakyat project, our intention when we built the plant was to contribute towards a better economy and to create a positive impact for our nation. By taking steps to minimise our carbon footprint and empowering the surrounding communities, Malaysians can now look forward to having greater opportunities and better, brighter lives.

Accessible education for everyone

Education

One of the pain points to befall Malaysians in their pursuit of higher education is usually the high cost of tertiary knowledge. For some students that hail from lower-income families, this rings truer than most. That was essentially how the Tenaga Nasional Foundation (Yayasan Tenaga Nasional - YTN) was established in 1993 – to offer bright young Malaysians with the opportunity to pursue a brighter future through higher education.

The foundation offers financial help for tertiary education in the form of scholarships for selected foreign universities, and public universities in Malaysia including Universiti Tenaga Nasional (UNITEN). In 2017 alone, the foundation disbursed RM55.78 million to assist 1,963 Malaysians with financing their education.

For those interested in pursuing an education locally, all you have to do is apply at UNITEN, where you can pursue two ways of funded entry. The first would be under a Scholarship for any of the courses available at UNITEN. The second, is through applying for Variable Loans that are also available for all UNITEN courses. The advantage to the latter option is that students who do well in the route of pursuing their Diploma or Degree, can convert their loan to a scholarship by maintaining consistent results every semester.

If you have your sights set on an international education, you can submit an application for the university and course of your choice during advertised periods. Students that meet the necessary requirements and pass the multi-layered application process will earn their spot as a YTN scholar.

Aside from making education more accessible for all, YTN is also dedicated to helping the youth of Malaysia develop and grow personally. YTN routinely organises student development programmes such as the Program Mutiara Timur – PMT (Eastern Pearl Programme) and Kem Remaja Bestari (Bright Youth Camp), while continuously engaging with universities and relevant authorities. On top of receiving a sponsored education, YTN scholars also enjoy access to training sessions like the ‘Nurturing Future Leaders’ programme and other essential life-skills related workshops.

The extent of YTN’s commitment in ensuring bright Malaysians have the means to pursue better futures is apparent by the consistent increase in funding disbursed. Since its inception, the foundation has helped over 11,000 deserving students to achieve their dreams, thanks to funds that exceed RM1 billion to date.

FISHING FOR A NEW SANCTUARY

Environment

​Alongside our Tree for Tree and Firefly Conservation projects, we have also embarked on a mission to preserve the fast declining Mahseer Fish population. This species of fish that typically inhabits rivers and lakes, has been suffering a severe decline in recent years due to overfishing and the development of hydroelectric plants that cause physical changes to the river’s ecosystem.

Recognising these issues, TNB Research Sdn Bhd (TNBR) has developed a pilot project called the Tagal System Sanctuary – adapted from the TAGAL system model that is being actively implemented in Sabah. “Tagal” stands for “no” in Kadazan-Dusun, and is meant to signify a ban on fishing activities by the river. This sanctuary is part of the Mahseer Conservation Management Plan by the Hulu Terengganu Hydroelectric Station in Sungai Tembat.

The TAGAL system is implemented in five stages; training, location selection, site preparation, system testing and final assessment. At the first stage, we conducted field trips to the Pahang National Park, Perlok Aquaculture Development Center and Ranau, Sabah, where we had the chance to learn more about the Tagal system and different breeding techniques. With the help of research data, we chose Sungai Tembat as the location for our sanctuary and began construction on a temporary operations centre. Over the course of 12 months, we will be testing out the tagal system along with a feeding schedule of three times a day, and 24-hour surveillance. At the end of this pilot project, we plan to open our doors to visitors to get their feedback on our progress.

It’s still early days for this pioneer project. Our initial work has been focused on cultivating the Mahseer Fish through routine feeding and preventing activities that could potentially disrupt their natural habitat. Once pilot testing is complete, the real work can begin. We hope to collaborate with other local agencies and communities to implement this model in more locations across Malaysia. In time, we believe that these efforts will allow the Mahseer fish to thrive in their rightful habitats, while also providing the local population with additional economic resources.

SHAPING EDUCATIONAL EXCELLENCE

Education

The best legacy we can leave for our future generations is a quality education. We have witnessed firsthand the power of education in creating opportunities, breaking poverty, changing lives and shaping a nation’s future. Today, more than ever before, it is important to equip our children and youth with knowledge and thinking skills, so that they can compete on a level playing field.

That vision led to the introduction of the Trust Schools Programme through Yayasan AMIR in 2010. A relatively new concept in Malaysia, Trust Schools are government schools that are jointly managed and supported by public-private partnerships. Since its incorporation, Better Brighter has helped fund eight trust schools in both rural and suburban locations across Malaysia. These schools are SK Kampung Jawa, SMK Kampung Jawa, SK Seri Samudera, SMK Seri Samudera, SK Jeli, SMK Jeli, SK Paka III and SMK Seri Paka.

Trust Schools are selected based on several criteria such as their geographical location, transformational potential, and social-equity balance. Run by principals appointed by Yayasan AMIR, they work closely with the Ministry of Education (MOE) to determine a schedule, curriculum, staffing, pupil policies, and utilisation of funds that will help bring Yayasan Amir Trust Schools Programme’s (YATSP) vision to life. This occurs in two stages; at Stage 1, the YATSP, MOE and school principals will convene to align their visions and interests. At Stage 2, YATSP will create a public dialogue with teachers, parents, and students in attendance. This separate session allows them to gain feedback on which direction the school would be embarking upon, in order to benefit and impact the lives of everyone involved.

The end goal of YATSP is to improve accessibility to quality education and to develop our nation’s future leaders and thinkers. To achieve this, Yayasan AMIR consistently strives to enhance the curriculum and teaching quality of government schools in Malaysia. But it is the joint involvement of the school community, parents, corporations, and the government, all of whom play a role in nurturing and empowering the next generation, that makes this programme such an excellent initiative.

Currently, our network has over 80 Trust Schools spread across ten states and in the span of a few short years, the programme has already shown encouraging results. We have seen a significant increase in the passing rate for Ujian Penilaian Sekolah Rendah (UPSR) students, as well as a boost in the Grade Point Average (GPA) of Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM) students at these schools. There has also been an increase in the holistic development of students through co-curricular activities.

At this juncture, the programme is still in its early stages, and although the journey ahead is a long one, we believe the final results will be well worth the effort to create the next great generation of well-rounded leaders.

THUNDEROUS GOALS

Sports

Hockey is quite a popular sport among Malaysians, coming second only to football. Back in 2006 however, it was sadly playing second fiddle to other sports. This meant that the pool of amazing talent we had was left undeveloped. Hence came the idea from one of TNB’s former CEOs to bring together former national players to assist with coaching talented young Malaysian hockey players.

Following the initial success of this programme, it then earned the name Thunderbolts Programme for Hockey Development, due to the unexpected rise and success of the players.

The following year, the programme enlisted our first school participant – the Tunku Mahkota Sports School (Sekolah Sukan Tunku Mahkota Ismail - SSTMI). There, we executed various specially crafted clinics run by former players to inspire this new generation of players.

Thunderbolts Programme formula

This was made possible through the three-lever standard. At the first lever, we increased and expanded the pool of players through one-of-a-kind clinics and various school presence. Whereas at the second lever, the intermediate and grass-roots level coaches’ skills are boosted so that they can better pass on accurate knowledge and skills to the players. For the third lever, we cooperated with relevant parties such as schools, the Ministry of Culture and Sports, Ministry of Education, and more to achieve a greater impact.

Throughout the years, these talented players have been graced by expert coaches such as Nor Saiful Zaini, Lailin Abu Hassan, M. Kaliswaran, Nor Azlan Bakar, K. Rajan, Ahmad Sayuti, Nadarajan, Madzl Ikmar, Amin Rahim and Fairus Ramli, just to name a few.

A Snapshot of Today

Fast forward to today, the Thunderbolt Programme has empowered four schools that compete annually in the Malaysian Junior Hockey League. With time, we have seen through the development of these bright young talents and sharpened them further by advancing them to the Hockey National Team.

With all these one-of-a-kind programmes available for these talented players, we’ve seen results such as having SSTMI maintaining championships and dominating the top positions within the TNB Malaysian Junior Hockey League (TNB-MJHL) every year.

Promising players hoping to further develop their talents even after graduation can rest assured as they stand a chance to enter and train with the National Hockey Team, the TNB Thunderbolts. Historically, 18 national players have been cultivated through the Thunderbolt Programme since its inception.

Succeeding that, there are currently four national coaches whom are TNB staff (Sports Unit). And to top it all off, the Ministry of Youth and Sports has published a book named The Sticks – TNB Hockey Books accounting the tales and success of the programme.

More Than Just Hockey

At the end of the day, we want to provide more than just hockey talent development but also wholesome development as individuals. These talented players are also given the opportunity to further their studies at UNITEN or ILSAS, picking a course of their choice.

Then later on if they choose so, they too can advance within the hockey scene by getting promoted or to coach the team. Those who enter the TNB family also benefit not only from a great work environment but also from sports leave, hockey allowance, recognition and rewards.

EQUIPPED FOR YET ANOTHER YEAR

Education

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.

STRENGTHENING GROUNDS FOR THE FUTURE

Environment

We all know that trees are essential to our lives, but the importance of preserving and reinvigorating their population has not often been high on our list. As a group, we at Better Brighter have collectively been replanting trees across Malaysia, so that our future generations will not only live in a healthier environment but also have the chance to get to know these magnificent florae.

Comprising of numerous glorious local species of trees, we’ve been planting them by the thousands throughout the years across Malaysia, but our efforts don’t stop there. In the foreseeable future, we plan to increase the number of saplings planted by working with different groups of volunteers.

Thus far, we have worked with volunteers from various universities and schools to encourage a love and interest for these florae, ranging from Jelutong, Meranti Tembaga, Pelawan Putih, Merawan Siput Jantan, Saputangan, Bakau Kurap and many more local florae that used to thrive in the tens of thousands throughout Malaysia, so that they recognise and understand the history of our woods.

Since its conception, our Tree For Tree programme has successfully planted 11,743 trees or 89 breeds across the states with the help of our volunteers and sponsors, and this is only the beginning. In the coming years, we will continue to plant even more trees across Malaysia.

Building a way out of poverty

Community

As the world continues to progress and develop before our very eyes, we in turn grow increasingly accustomed to greater comforts and a better way of life. It’s easy to take for granted the conveniences you enjoy on a daily basis. But for some, the little things that we might today consider basic necessities – like electricity, or a clean source of running water, are in fact a luxury. These communities live in old, worn out homes, and without the ability to afford renovation or repair works, they go about their daily lives sometimes in hazardous conditions.

It was these communities that inspired the Baiti Jannati project, a sustainable community programme launched in 2007 by TNB with the goal of addressing the issue of poverty and improving the standards of living in our nation. Baiti Jannati is Arabic for “My home, my haven”, and that was where we wanted to concentrate our efforts. Targeting the hardcore poor Bumiputera community, we wanted to help restore the homes of deserving recipients into more comfortable spaces that were equipped with basic amenities like electricity, water and furniture.

With priority given to the disabled, senior citizens, orphans, and single parent homes, we kicked off the program in 2007 with a RM50,000 budget that went towards repairing and furnishing seven different homes in Pahang and Negeri Sembilan. The success of this project in its first year propelled us to carry on with this effort. Since then, each year has seen even more families receiving help through the programme than the last.

In addition to funding the cost of home repairs, TNB also contributed household items and appliances to selected recipients. These additional gifts were made possible through the kind contributions of the public and some of TNB’s staff associations, such as the Pelitawanis, Kelab Kilat, Trade Union (Kesatuan Sekerja) and TNB Islamic Welfare Association (Persatuan Kebajikan Pekerja Islam TNB). Their desire to help the less fortunate did not stop there, TNB staff members also contributed their time and energy by lending their hands in the renovation and repair works for our recipients.

In what started off as a small but meaningful initiative, the Baiti Jannati project has grown steadily over the years with an annual budget that has expanded exponentially from RM50,000 in 2007 to RM5,850,000 in 2017. From 2013 onwards, we began utilising our own business zakat funds to increase the scale of this project and the percentage of people it will benefit. To date, the Baiti Jannati project has allowed 439 families to lead better lives with an estimated total funding of RM17.6 million. From repairing and rebuilding homes, we have gone on to help struggling families to finally own their homes through the Public Housing Programme (Program Perumahan Rakyat – PPR).

Living in extreme poverty can sometimes go on to affect your future and mobility. The Baiti Jannati programme doesn’t just create a brighter future for homeowners, but also for their children. With a cosy home that’s equipped to meet all their basic needs, the children can now enjoy a more conducive study environment, which will in turn lead to better academic performance and chance of upward social mobility. Our goal is to give Malaysians the opportunity to lead better lives and in the long run, go on to have futures.

NATURE’S GLOW SEES A BRIGHTER FUTURE

Environment

On a dark moonless night down by the river banks of Selangor, thousands upon thousands of tiny golden lights glittered gracefully all around us. They flickered away in an unsynchronised symphony of sorts, unaware of the dangers that were about to eclipse them.

Kampung Kuantan Fireflies Park is home to one of the world’s largest firefly colonies mainly consisting of four major firefly groups – the Colophotia, Luciola, Lynchnuris and Pteroptyx Tener. All around the world, populations like these are slowly disappearing thanks to light pollution and urban development that are destroying their natural habitats. Without an ideal Berembang Tree to call home, the females struggle to find a place to lay their eggs, and the larvae have difficulty maturing into adults. It is a vicious cycle and like all the other creatures driven to extinction before them, this story was not unheard of. The ending, however, was about to be rewritten.

As part of our Kampung Kuantan Firefly Preservation Project, we have been working towards creating a better home and future for the fireflies at the Kampung Kuantan Fireflies Park. In 2008, we set up a fund to help subsidise our research efforts and to perform upgrading and maintenance works on the facilities at Kampung Kuantan Fireflies Park. To date, our sponsorship has made way for 30 new boats, a new jetty, six gazebos, a mini theatre, an additional pathway for entry and exit, and re-wiring works at the park.

In doing all these, we have not forgotten about the boatmen - the true lifeblood of this park. In line with our sustainable efforts to care for the park’s entire ecosystem, we continue to plan year-round programmes that focus specifically on the welfare and personal development of these individuals who are the driving force behind this centre. Some of the activities we have organised in the past include Arabic and Japanese language courses, programmes such as ‘Suarasa Aidilfitri’, ‘Ihya Ramadhan’ and many more.

Since 2010, TNB Research Sdn Bhd (TNBR), in cooperation with the Centre for Environmental Science and Natural Resource Studies of Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM) have been studying the habitat and biological requirements of fireflies. These research efforts have allowed us to successfully breed Berembang trees – which are a rich source of food for fireflies and to replant them all around the Selangor riverbanks through our Let’s Plant Berembang Trees project.

But for our efforts to truly make an impact, the public needed to be informed of this great treasure our nation has. For this reason, we organised social visits, and programmes such as the Environmental Awareness Camp (Kem Kesedaran Alam Sekitar), An Evening with the Boatmen, the Back to School Programme and TNB Schools Adoption Programme, to spread an awareness of firefly conservation to all.

Throughout our rehabilitation and conservation activities, we continue to measure the efficiency and achievements of all the work we have done, so we can constantly improve. These upgrades and programmes not only improve visitor experience, but also promote the park as a prime tourist destination in Selangor. Most importantly, it’s all done to ensure the future generations have the chance to witness the beauty of these remarkable creatures in their lifetimes.Till today, the wonders of the firefly colony in Kampung Kuantan Fireflies Park are only a row boat away. Visitors can easily charter boats daily, except on the occasions of rainy weather. We recommend the best time to visit is between 8 - 11pm, where you can purchase entries at the ticket booth which opens at 7.45pm.

Better Rest, Better Care

Community

Caring for a loved one that has been admitted for medical care can be tiring, and the sleep deprivation that comes with it can add to the stress. A good night’s rest does wonders for the body, mind and soul. Because of that, we partnered with institutions to ensure you can get the rest you need at any of our shelters nationwide.

Located right in the heart of the city, our first launch was the Better Brighter Dormitory IJN Foundation. Weary caretakers can now settle in comfortably for the night, and be at their loved ones’ sides bright and early in the morning.

This 56-bedded shelter provides those far from home, a safe, clean and comfortable environment to rest before the start of another day.

This Better Brighter Dormitory IJN Foundation that launched on 14 November 2017 is currently located at the National Heart Institute (Institut Jantung Negara - IJN) in Jalan Tun Razak.

Expansion plans to provide even more Better Brighter Shelters nationwide are well on its way in the coming New Year.

SUNNY DAYS FOR DESERVING INSTITUTIONS

Community

A common theme we usually encounter from charitable institutions, such as orphanages and welfare homes, is the extra daily operational costs and the large amount of precious time they spent on fundraising.

Some institutions have shared that utility expenses alone can take up to 50% of their monthly expenses. That’s because the power consumption of equipment, and the comfort of residents and students is a normal cost to be borne.

While most organisations had donated money to assist them in paying their bills, that was only a short term solution. That’s why we had decided to not only educate them on how they can save power, but also to help them in generating money to offset their monthly expenses.

TNB is focused on Renewable Energy initiatives - solar being one of them. We believed we could help these institutions gain a stable revenue by installing solar panels to help them generate electricity. The electricity generated were channelled into the National Grid, earning them money from the Feed in Tariff Scheme (Skim Galakan Tarif). This provided them with more stability and allowed them to focus on maintaining the quality of life for the people under their care.

This sustainable initiative aimed at assisting deserving institutions across the country is called ‘Lestari Community Project’ (Projek Komuniti Lestari).

The nationwide rollout began in 2015, with solar panels being installed in 19 institutions (consisting of Orphanages, Care Homes and schools) benefiting the lives of 2,854 residents. On average, these institutions managed to generate 14,374kW, which translated to an extra RM16,047 per institution annually.

The following years have seen the number of equipped institutions growing to 44, and the numbers are increasing annually. We are also looking to expand our efforts to other further reached locations nationwide, so we can equip even more institutions in 2018.

RESTORING HOMES AND HEARTS

Community

People from impoverished homes tend to live in harsh conditions, but this is the reality that they face daily. Understanding this situation, we created the Mesra Rakyat Project (Projek Mesra Rakyat) - a project that aims to repair or restore the less than ideal parts of their homes, so they can have a better quality of life.

This newly launched project of ours currently aims to assist 24 homes nationwide within the coming year. At present, we have assisted in rebuilding parts of these underprivileged homes such as the kitchen, bedroom, bathroom, and living room. In some cases, we concentrate only on the floors as parts of these homes can sometimes be so dilapidated that they not only raise safety concerns for those living in them, but also impede their ability to conduct even simple tasks in their lives.

With all these in mind, we have reached out to numerous non-bumiputera residents to help them regain some normalcy in their lives as we rebuild and repair these parts of their homes.

When we embark on a quest to restore a home, we do so not only with the help of our volunteers but also with the assistance of the local community, simultaneously reinvigorating the sense of belonging within said community.

Currently, we have allocated a sum of no more than RM30,000 to each home, and we will definitely be increasing the number of homes we will be restoring in 2018.

THUNDEROUS GOALS

Hockey is quite a popular sport among Malaysians, coming second only to football. Back in 2006 however, it was sadly playing second fiddle to other sports. This meant that the pool of amazing talent we had was left undeveloped. Hence came the idea from one of TNB’s former CEOs to bring together former national players to assist with coaching talented young Malaysian hockey players.
