PETALING JAYA: Kelab TaHa, started by Lembaga Tabung Haji in 2008 to encourage savings by children aged seven to 17, has drawn 1.12 million members, making it into the Malaysia Book of Records (MBoR) as having the most number of school children in a single club.
MBoR founder and managing director Danny Ooi presented the recognition award to Tabung Haji managing director and chief executive officer Datuk Paduka Ismee Ismail at a ceremony that also marked the club’s sixth anniversary at the TH Hotel in Kelana Jaya here yesterday.
“The recognition shows the initiative and commitment by the TH staff, supported by the Education Ministry, school managements and students,” Ismee said at the event.
“TH has more than 50 programmes annually for its young depositors, using academic and holistic methods to instil a passion for saving money from their school days.
“This certificate would be a catalyst to improve the quality of service of TH as a premier Islamic organisation and to ensure the continuity of excellence at TH and Kelab TaHa.”
The event featured a choral speaking performance by students of SMK Tinggi Melaka, showcasing the range of values they learned through the club.
The club, which had started out with 119,651 student members, provides its members with a variety of benefits that include discounts at more than 300 Kelab TaHa network partners and 15% discount on accommodation at any TH Hotel & Residences.
Members eligible for excellence awards in UPSR, PMR and SPM examinations are given free examination guidance.
