Dignity For Children Foundation
Flowers of Hope donated RM 23,000 to the following children
Dignity for Children Foundation aims to empower underprivileged urban poor children to break the cycle of poverty through quality education, positively transforming their lives and the lives of the community around them. Dignity achieves this by establishing high quality learning centres under one roof for the poor; implementing specialised learning environments to develop children academically and socially thus empowering them to become productive members of society.
Started more than 15 years ago in Sentul with only 20 students Dignity is now a learning centre with 1,000 poor and vulnerable children ranging from 2-17 years old. It provides quality education and care in a secure environment for pre-school to Form 5. Many of the children had gone through the school and passed with O level qualifications. Without Dignity’s education provisions these underprivileged children would not be attending school and will be open to and engaged with undesirable activities in the streets.
Flowers of Hope Exhibition Donated RM 22,000 to the Bursary Fund of the School
Born of a vision by her founding members, Sri Sempurna, meaning “Perfect Light”, opened its doors as a private school in 1993. The vision was to provide a holistic education and to raise up a generation of children, who as adults, will make a difference and contribute to the nation building of Malaysia. From its humble beginnings, the school has grown from strength to strength to what it is today. In 2013, Sri Sempurna moved from being a private school doing the National Syllabus, to an international school, offering the Cambridge Syllabus.
Sri Sempurna currently has a student population of about 940 students coming from various backgrounds. Despite keeping its fees low, many are not able to afford an international education. The school offers bursaries to help students who are in need. These bursaries are awarded on an annual basis.
The school is managed by a Board of Managers, formerly helmed by the late Dato’ Lew Sip Hon, former Ambassador and Cabinet Minister.
