Dow Chemical STEM Robotics Education Program Changes Lives of 10 Youths

22 May 2017, Dow Chemical STEM Robotics Education Program Phase 1 Graduation at Le Meridian Kuala Lumpur

Yesterday we witnessed 10 youths, graduating their First Phase of Robotics Education Program sponsored by Dow Chemical!

It has been an exciting journey with these 10 youths since we commenced our STEM Robotics Education Program with Dow Chemical since November 2016. We witnessed the life changing process of these 10 youths. From being uncertain during the learning process in the beginning till seeing their passion growing through breaking through and overcoming the learning obstacles, we see them beaming with joy when they finally got their programming format worked for their first robotic assembly.

To learn Robotics should be something almost impossible for these youths to obtain as the learning cost is high. But thanks to Dow Chemical who sees the potential in them. Indeed, these 10 youths discovered their true potential through the Robotics Education Program for the past 6 months. Not only they obtain precious knowledge such as basic programming skills, most importantly, they have gained self-confidence, self-esteem and dignity. They see themselves differently as they begin to have dreams to become Future Leaders.




Through breaking through the learning obstacles, Robotics Education Program helped these youths to be solution-focused and it helped them to obtained problem solving skills which are practical for their future too. Not only that, throughout these 6 months, these youths are required to worked together as a team to solve a programming problem and build a robot. They learned to accept and respect one another, be united and how to work the best as a Team.


We have finally accomplished the Phase 1 Robotics Education Program (the first 6 months), and now we are prepared for more, as one of the 10 youths, Alif, who is our top performer in the Phase 1 Robotics Class, shall be the Facilitator for the next 6 months to train another batch of youths to accomplish the Phase 1 Robotics Education Program Module.


And what more? We are so excited as Dow Chemical would like to continue in supporting the Robotics Education Program by donating a total of RM 73,567.62 to us! We foresee that we are going to anticipate more exciting journeys in the future!

DoubleTree by Hilton Kuala Lumpur's volunteers teach kids about Energy Saving

25 March 2017, DoubleTree by Hilton Kuala Lumpur Earth Hour Program 

It was our privilege to be invited by DoubleTree by Hilton Kuala Lumpur to the Earth Hour program every year. This year, we appreciate the effort by the staff who organize this year's Earth Hour Program by conducting an Energy Saving talk for the kids to help them understand the objective of Earth Hour and what is our role in protecting our earth and environment.

The kids' favorite was the Torch Light making session. The torch light is made with the recycled bottle by connecting a light bulb to a battery. Thanks to all the volunteer staff for being patient in guiding our kids. After making the torch light, that's where we had the official Earth Hour as we switch off the light for an hour and all the kids light up their torch lights.

Thanks to DoubleTree by Hilton KL for hosting us a dinner treat at Makan Kitchen.




Thanks to DoubleTree by Hilton Kuala Lumpur and the CARE Committee members for your hospitality and thoughtfulness that gave our kids a memorable Earth Hour Program.

HELP University Students Paint the Future for the 25 kids

18 March 2017, Activity Learning with 25 kids by HELP University Volunteers at Centre of HOPE worldwide

Kudos to the fellow volunteers from HELP University who organized drawing and coloring activities for our kids! The theme of the drawing and coloring activities was DREAM where the kids were encouraged to draw their Dreams - some of them drew Superheros, doctors and teachers. It was amazing to see how Creative Art could be a channel and platform for these kids to express themselves so effectively.

After that, the kids and volunteers had fun by playing Tic-Tac-Toe and eventually did hands printing to create a poster entitled "Paint your Future".



It was a fun-filled and memorable weekend especially for one of the kids, Nanthiny who celebrated her Birthday for the very first time with so many friends singing birthday song to her =)



Thanks to the volunteers who bought a cake for Nanthiny's 8th Birthday and thoughtfully prepare the goodies for every kid!
