Funds raised from the performance will empower children through: supporting mother-tongue education for young Malaysian children through motivation camps, exam seminars, intensive coaching for weak students, etc;
supporting internationally-recognized exam progams (SSAT and GED) for refugee children in refugee learning centres; stimulating & creative activities for body, mind & spirit (soccer camp, kids’ art camp, yoga for kids, dance, etc).
AMURT Malaysia aims to empower refugee communities through educational support. Starting with tuition subsidies and computer-based English and Maths learning kits, AMURT now focuses on helping STROM (Srilankan Tamil Refugee Organisation of Malaysia) prepare their students to take the internationally-recognized SSAT (Secondary School Admission Test) and GED (General Education Diploma) exams. We see this as a pilot project aimed at helping all refugee children in Malaysia and around the world to upgrade their standard of education and thus their prospects for a better tomorrow.
Pedagogical experts tell us that little children learn best through mother-tongue education. AMURT Malaysia’s Children for a Better World program seeks to empower less-privileged Malaysian children through providing a sound foundation at primary-school level.
AMURT’s service-tourism holidays aim to expose fortunate Malaysian kids to the struggles of less-privileged folks in less-developed countries, and to give them a taste of the joy of service. To date, we have organized service-tourism holidays to Pariaman, Indonesia (2010) and Sangklapuri, Thailand (2012). Our next trip will be to beautiful Aurora, Philippines in June 2015.
