Kamilia Mohammad Khatib has dedicated every alternate Sunday to teaching children living with HIV at PT Foundation, a community-based non-govermental organisation that gives support services to the disadvantaged in Chow Kit, Kuala Lumpur. Among their clients are the homeless, drug users, sex workers and those infected and affected by HIV.

“Part of my three-hour volunteer work involves teaching kindergarten children how to read, write and count. These children are always so excited to absorb new information,” says the 24-year-old psychology graduate.
