Aiding B40 kids to keep up with studies online

Learning from home: Children from B40 families doing schoolwork with the free mobile phones from YTL’s initiative.

PETALING JAYA: There is a high chance that students from the B40 group will not be able to keep up with their studies during the movement control order (MCO), said YTL Foundation programme director Datin Kathleen Chew Wai Lin.

Although many teachers have moved to online classes, it would not serve any purpose if there is no way for the students to access the content, she said.
