Teacher provides hope in the dark

PETALING JAYA: It is the middle of the night and no one is expecting a respected school principal to be roaming the streets of a rough neighbourhood.

However, Zulkernai Fauzi is a man on a mission. He wants to convince needy parents to send their children to his school – Sekolah Bimbingan Jalinan Kasih.

The school, located in Chow Kit, was specially set up by the Education Ministry in 2013 to provide free education for street children, including stateless children, who do not have identification documents.
