Tamil school students get reference book boon

TAMIL school students in Perak received RM15,000 worth of reference books contributed by several NGOs in the state, reported Malaysia Nanban.

The contribution was through the effort of the Indian Cultural & Language Society of Universiti Tunku Abdul Rahman Kampar Campus in line with the mission to provide quality education under the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

The first phase of the programme saw 155 students from 10 schools in South Kinta and Batang Padang districts receive the books, which were sponsored by the Inner Wheel Club of Ipoh.

The books were handed over to the students in February during a special event held at SJK (T) Kampar by Inner Wheel Club chairman Catherine Thinagaran.

The second phase saw 115 students from eight schools in Mualim and Batang Padang receiving the books from philanthropist Dr Sivamuralitharan Muniandy in a ceremony on March 13.
