Dow Chemical volunteers & students doing internet research about Environment

21 September 2013, Dow Chemical volunteers at 1 Stop IT Resource Centre

A great community work done by Dow Chemical Volunteers for the urban poor students in doing internet research on several topics about Environment at our 1 Stop IT Resource Centre a.k.a the Community Computer Centre which is just established in January this year.

Approximately 15 volunteers from Dow Chemical were here last Saturday. We have 9 students here aged from 10 to 13 years old who are the current students selected to attend the Microsoft Skills Learning Classes which is held on alternate Saturdays at the 1 Stop IT Resource Centre.

We got to know Dow Chemical during the month of August while we were invited to conduct the workshop about Community & Volunteerism at their premises. We also received donation amounting RM 16,000.00 from Dow Chemical which will benefit a total of 60 urban poor students in purchasing their schooling needs during the year-end School Sponsorship Program.

Dow Chemical volunteers had a great time doing online research with the students. Each volunteer was assigned to group with one student to do this project. Environment is a general topic, so we break the main topic into smaller areas for them to focus on: Recycling, Global Warming, Water, Endangered Species & Trees (Forest). After gathered sufficient information from the internet, the volunteers will do a Power Point Presentation Slides together with the students. Lastly, the presentation slides will be printed out and bound together as a project book. Evrery respective volunteer and student who did the topic research will do a LIVE presentation for everyone. The best presentation group will be awarded!

Thanks to Dow Chemical for your initiatives in reaching out to the underprivileged students. We believe this is a milestone for both HOPE worldwide Malaysia and Dow Chemical in achieving a greater height of CSR Initiatives. Especially in educating the urban poor students about the importance of taking care our environment in many aspects. Thanks again to Dow Chemical and we shall see you all very soon for the next project!
