Personal Challenge

Support my climb by donating to keep OA kids in school!

My Story

Dear all, I first started with SUKA Society as a volunteer through their empowered2teach program which is an empowerment project to help Orang Asli communities set up their own pre-school. It has been an enriching and touching journey for me to see the Orang Asli teachers so passionate in helping the children in their community read and write. Many of the Orang Asli children do not complete their primary and secondary education as they cant cope with the syllabus, or simply because their parents cant afford to send their children to school. The teachers also go beyond their means to help the community by setting up extra classes after their pre-school hours to help the illiterate in their village learn to read and write basic English and Bahasa. Through this empowerment project, I can see that the pre-schools has started to motivate and inspire the community on how crucial access to basic education plays a vital role in forming a bright future for their children and in generations to come. I will be climbing Mount Kinabalu on 11-14th April 2015 to raise funds for SUKA Society to help keep 3 Orang Asli community pre-schools running for a year and 2 Orang Asli villages obtain clean water. It only costs RM250 for an orang asli pre-school to run for a week, and i am aiming to raise RM250 for every km climbed, making it a total of RM2250 for 9km's to the peak. To read more about the orang asli pre-school project visit the website here, http://empowered2teach.org/ Please help me reach my target by donating towards my climb as we truly need your support to keep the pre-schools running. Any amount will be appreciated. Thank you, Sarah
