TEACHING children English and Maths at Pusat Bimbingan Pelajar (student guidance centre) is but one of Yayasan Generasi Gemilang (GG)’s education programmes.
The organisation also holds talks and camps on cyber wellness, financial education, and leadership and character building.
There is also a computer literacy programmes in partnership with Microsoft and a community reading programme that promotes reading and English literacy among primary school children through one-to-one mentoring.
And while education is the key to change, this alone is not enough. So, various community development programmes such as PRUkasih, conducted in partnership with Prudential Assurance Malaysia Berhad were set up.
The free financial protection plan safeguards families from financial risks resulting from death, injury or any unfortunate circumstances that prevents the breadwinner from providing for the family.
These families will get temporary financial assistance, giving them time to recover and get back on their feet.
In GG’s website, the three teenage children of a single mother who passed away, and a new widow, were some of the people who received this assistance.
As of last year, over 20,632 households from 12 communites in Kuala Lumpur, Selangor and Johor benefited from this.
The organisation also provides school uniforms and breakfast to school-going children.
