THE “Back to School” project, initiated by the kengkawanproject, an independent NGO, was held at Yayasan Chow Kit’s Children Activities Centre recently.
The initiative is aimed at getting the public to donate monetary contribution to purchase new school uniforms for children from the foundation.
Contributions started to pour in from the public just under a week, as Sunway Putra Mall took the opportunity to also collaborate in the project.
The shopping centre had previously brought fun and excitement to the children through its “Merdeka Cheer” programme in August last year, where the children were treated to an exciting day out.
The recent event at the Children Activities Centre saw the distribution of school uniforms with stationery contributions from Sunway Group and Sunway Putra Mall, as well as private donors.
There were also health screenings and checks, with talks to ensure the children were aware of the importance of personal hygiene and to care for themselves.
Yayasan Chow Kit’s Children Activities Centre provides documentation, education, counselling, shelter and foster care and looks after the health and wellness of children aged four to 12 years.
The foundation also helps to seek job opportunities for parents in need, provide them with financial assistance and empowering and providing them support, among others.
Once opened, Sunway Putra Mall, with its interesting mix of gourmet emporium, international and regional fashion, family goodness, food and beverage as well as other offerings, is set to fit in with the urban lifestyle of today, along with many other upcoming corporate social responsibility efforts.
