A ceremony was held at the Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sports (MCYS) to witness the hand over of two laptop computers and five mobile phones, allowing teachers to conduct online learning programmes.

The presentation by Dynamik Technologies and Progresif was held on Thursday in support of the Goals for Education campaign.

Dynamik Technologies Corporate Marketing and Communications lead Faizul Yahya and Progresif Corporate Social Responsibility and Sponsorship representative Amilin Mat Sah handed over the devices to Village Consultative Council (MPK) RPN Kampong Panchor Mengkubau Community and Communication Head Fatimah binti Haji Jamil, with Acting Director of Social Services Division at the MCYS Hajah Noridah binti Abdul Hamid as witness.
Curahan Ilmu Program Deputy Chairperson Alida binti Alihusin also attended.

The donation is part of the ‘Free Tuition classes’ initiative under the Curahan Ilmu Programme organised by the Community and Communication Bureau of the MPK RPN Kampong Panchor Mengkubau. The programme aims to help less fortunate children continue their studies smoothly.

The devices will be distributed to the MPK RPN Kampong Panchor Mengkubau and loaned to students sitting for their Primary School Assessment (PSR) exams. These children are from less fortunate families registered under the Community Development Department, residing in RPN Kampong Panchor Mengkubau.

The Goals for Education donation drive is a collaborative effort between Dynamik Technologies and Progresif, which employs a whole-of-nation approach in supporting online learning initiatives and students in need of ICT devices nationwide. The drive was officially launched last year after schools were affected by closures following the COVID-19 outbreak.

“Through the Goals for Education initiative with Dynamik Technologies, we are supporting online learning programmes and students who require ICT devices,” said Amilin Mat Sah.

“This illustrates how public contribution works,” he said, before expressing gratitude for the opportunity to raise funds and contribute to students’ education, as well as for public approval in allowing them to use the funds to promote equal educational opportunities for students in need.

Faizul Yahya expressed hopes “the contribution will help ease their learning experience and that they will continue to strive for academic excellence”.

“Dynamik Technologies is dedicated to make a meaningful difference in the community, particularly for those in need. We are grateful to be working with Progresif, as well as for the collective support of our business sponsors and the general public, to make this campaign a success,” he added.
