Desks, two murals and the repainting of a block of classrooms – these were some of the additions and upgrades at SJK (C) Yu Hua, courtesy of Eco World Foundation.

In enhancing the learning environments of the school in Kajang, Selangor, the foundation was able to carry out the corporate social responsibility (CSR) of its parent company, Eco World Development Group Bhd.

During the CSR project handing-over ceremony, foundation chairman Tan Sri Lee Lam Thye emphasised its strong belief that education is a crucial investment for the country’s future.

“A quality education has the transformative power to change someone’s life for the better.

“This is the reason why we are driven in providing help to schools in need,” said Lee.

Also present at the event were the group’s president and CEO Datuk Chang Khim Wah, its divisional general manager Evon Yap, SJK (C) Yu Hua headmaster Wong See Lee and representatives from the school’s board of governors.

In 2019, the foundation donated 150 sets of desks and chairs worth RM16,500 to the primary school.

This was followed by another 150 sets of desks and chairs a few months later, bringing the total contribution to RM33,000.

This year, the foundation donated another 50 desks worth RM6,000 to the school.

Another RM12,000 was spent on paint supplies and tools for the one-day mural and painting project which involved 44 volunteers from Team EcoWorld.
