Are we really connected?

“Children are the future of tomorrow.” You and I, we familiar with this saying, but how many people actually to internalise the truth of this statement and act upon it?

“It takes the whole village to raise a child.” – YB Fahmi Fadzil, Member of parliament for Lembah Pantai.

In this day and age, with urbanisation, phones and instant media, we are slowly drifting apart as a close knitted community, and surely, we do not want this to happen to our future generation where everyone lives in silos, where in actual fact, our world know requires collaboration like never before, be it in education, technology, businesses, or even CSR, people need to work together in order to produce impactful results.

Thus, a collaborative spirit must be built in our children, our future generation, and where else other than a community club for children. Just like how YB Fahmi Fadzil puts it, “it takes the whole village to raise a child,” Kids 4 Kids (K4K) Civic Club aims to create a community learning centre in PPR communities and run educational programs for them to encourage interaction.

Taylor’s Community is supporting K4K in executing a 1-year program for the children with a monthly workshop. Last week, on 28th March at MINTS Hall PPR Kg Limau, a technology related session was held, namely, handling Microbits, to make learning fun and gave the 54 children an opportunity to spend their school holidays productively. The children were excited as Kenneth Chai from Learning Curve taught them about electro-wave, transmitters, input, output and above all, designing their very own 3D names. Moreover, YB Fahmi Fadzil, member of parliament for Lembah Pantai, who has been providing his continuous support, dropped by to be with the children and sponsored them ice cream, putting smiles on their faces.

We are proud to say that the number of children attending is a testimony to the sustainability of our work at Lembah Pantai. As encouraged, some children too brought new friends whenever they come for their k4k civic club activity to maximize the impact of connecting children and connecting communities. This round, 99% of our children indicated positive emotions and all the volunteers felt fulfilled and were grateful for the opportunity.

Moving forward, we are excited for the upcoming April workshop regarding history, to bring our children in togetherness, that they will be the future who stands for multidisciplinary collaboration. Follow us to find out how we’re going to make History interesting!
