OIL refining and distribution company Green Aim Sdn Bhd has pledged support for the Melaka government’s initiative to enhance education excellence by sponsoring educational magazine Kuntum for schoolchildren.

Green Aim executive director Sulaiman Mohd Dewa said the company wanted to support efforts to cultivate a passion for learning among young children.

“Kuntum has been around for 40 years and children in Melaka have the opportunity to improve their language skills by reading the magazine, ” he said after handing over a one-year subscription for 100 pupils in Lendu constituency to Melaka Chief Minister Datuk Seri Sulaiman Md Ali at Seri Negeri in Ayer Keroh.

Sulaiman said pupils in Lendu would be the first to receive the magazine before the company expands the subscription gift to schoolchildren from other areas.

He said pupils in vernacular schools would also receive the magazine when the company widens its sponsorship.

Kuntum is a Bahasa Malaysia children’s magazine published by Star Media Group.

It has carefully planned content for children to learn other languages too, such as Mandarin and English.

Kuntum also has sections with exercises for pupils to improve in other subjects like Mathematics.

The magazine has an online and offline presence, with video tutorials on social media, and also organises workshops to prepare pupils for the UPSR exam.

Separately, Green Aim also presented electronic devices to the Chief Minister’s secretary (public affair) Datuk MS Mahadevan to be distributed to students who need them for online classes due to Covid-19 and the movement control order. — By RSN MURALI
