Oracle Malaysia Volunteers at Food Distribution Program

19 May 2018, Oracle Malaysia volunteers at Food Distribution Program

Bravo job done by the volunteers from Oracle Malaysia by spending their weekend volunteering in the Food Distribution Program, reaching out to more than 110 low income families.


The most previous gift you can give to your children is the gift of Volunteerism. We always encourage our volunteers to bring along their children to experience the joy of giving. When they witness and experience themselves, they immediately understand the definition of empathy and compassion through volunteerism. Action speaks louder than words.



Oracle Volunteers helped some of the elderly beneficiaries to carry their load of groceries to the nearby bus stations.





Thanks for all your dedication and passion in this volunteerism. We look forward for more working opportunities in the future.

Campus Students as Teachers of the Day

12 May 2018, MY Reading Program with volunteers from Sunway University and UCSI

Bravo job to all campus students from Sunway University and UCSI for spending their weekend as Teachers of the Day in the MY Reading Program. Mentoring 30 children from the low income families in English through the methods of Reading, Listening, Writing and Speaking.

Some of these campus students are the first time ever, being a Teacher to teach a child to read. But this didn't stop them to sign up as volunteers. We always believe that, passion and a heart to serve are the keys to be a volunteer in the Reading Program, regardless if you are an experienced Educator or not. Check out the photos below then you will know why.






It's a joy to see some of the volunteers are coming back for the second and third time to serve in the MY Reading Program! And it was really a great encouragement to work with the volunteers from UCSI (U-Schos).

We hope to see you guys in the near future =)
