Students from 16 schools get 60 refurbished laptops with data plans

Devices contributed through the #MYBAIKHATI initiative being handed over to recipients.

IN ITS continuous effort to ease the burden of underprivileged students during this unprecedented period, Telekom Malaysia Bhd’s foundation, Yayasan TM, is working with Pintar Foundation to provide digital devices to underprivileged students. Through the #MYBAIKHATI initiative, YTM contributed 60 units of refurbished laptops along with a one-year 15GB LTE unifi Mobile #BEBAS data plan to the Bangsar/Pudu District Education Office (PPD).

Eligible students from 16 primary and secondary schools were identified to benefit from the contribution.

YTM director Izlyn Ramli said, “We understand the critical need for good, workable devices and Internet connection for home-based learning and teaching.

“Under the #MYBAIKHATI initiative, we have refurbished used laptops received from the public.

“Coupled with our data plan, we hope these students can have a better learning experience.

“We will continue to pave the way for deserving students to have greater access to education as we believe no one should be left behind, especially in this digital age.”Bangsar/Pudu district education officer Azuar Hussin said, “This contribution will be invaluable to the recipients and facilitate their learning process.”

#MYBAIKHATI is a crowdsourcing initiative aimed at collecting and repairing used communication devices to be distributed to low-income families.

Six TMpoint outlets have been set up in the Klang Valley as collection points to facilitate the donation drive.

The outlets are TM Experience Centre at Menara TM, Bangsar; TMpoint Setapak and TMpoint Taman Desa in Kuala Lumpur; TMpoint Cyberjaya; TMpoint Shah Alam; and TMpoint Bukit Raja in Selangor.

To encourage the public to donate their used smart devices, TM has partnered with realme, a smartphone manufacturer, which has allocated 300 vouchers worth RM50 each for individuals who contribute their used devices.

They can then use the vouchers to purchase any realme device at its official store on Shopee.

“Realme Malaysia is pleased to join forces with TM in encouraging Malaysians to donate their used smart devices,” said realme Malaysia brand director Tiffany Teh.
