Sunway Education Group’s Alumni Office recently joined hands with MyTeksi in its “Delivering Happiness” donation drive.
The initiative at the Sunway campus received many pre-loved toys and children’s books, which were handed over to MyTeksi marketing executive Zim Sen Yeow.
The items were presented by Sunway Education Group senior executive director Elizabeth Lee and Sunway Education Group student services director Lee Siok Ping.
The items were then loaded onto John Supperamaniam’s taxi.
“Sunway has always believed in supporting its fellow alumni and various initiatives in contributing to the society at large.
“At Sunway, students are always encouraged to make a positive difference in the
world and where actions matter, the ‘Delivering Happiness’ donation drive encompasses these values.
“Community outreach projects such as these enable students to cultivate a spirit of giving and, in turn, gain better understanding on the importance of their roles in society and their community”, said Elizabeth Lee.
MyTeksi founder Anthony Tan is Sunway’s A-Levels alumnus.
“The collaboration between MyTeksi and Sunway University was such a rewarding experience for the children we helped together with our fellow teammates. Hopefully, the Sunway team enjoyed it just as much.
“Together, we made a positive difference in other people’s lives,” said Tan.
MyTeksi is a for-profit social startup with a mission to revolutionise the taxi industry and it is Malaysia’s leading mobile taxi application.
MyTeksi teamed up with Science of Life Studies 24/7 (SOLS 24/7), a non-governmental organisation that focuses on educating and empowering the lives of those in rural communities,
for this donation drive.
All donations received and
collected by MyTeksi were handed over to SOLS 24/7 to be distributed to children in underserved communities.
The donation drive required donors to use the MyTeksi application to book a taxi to collect the items.
Taxi fares for the collection were borne by MyTeksi.
