Hi! I’m Andrew. It’s been more than 1 year since I have been a full-time social worker! I always believe “Love and kindness are our light, guiding us through times of darkness”.
I started “Donate a Chance”, because I realise most underprivilege they’re not given the chance to expose to opportunities, such as education, jobs, circle of friends and etc.
It breaks my heart to see so many people still living in poverty and yet not doing anything, so it is a moral thing to help them, so that we really do something in this world. I believe everyone deserve a chance, give them the hope and the chance to complete their life without any obstacles.
Why I joined this initiative?
Many teenagers they have a bright future ahead of them, but opportunity is what they’re always lacking off.
I personally love Didik Kasih EduCare program, a lot. It helps the student from lower income family to support the things that they are really lacking of. Indirectly, they are also lowering the families’ burden, while their children are able to pursue for a higher learning education.
Being as a college/university student has never been easy. Aside from the academically stress, even if you are being fully sponsored on your academic, you will still need extra income to live, even if you are having mix rice or Maggie goreng every day. It adds up to an average of RM10.00 a day, just for a meal. What about the rental? Utilities bill? Transport? This may cause extra stress to the student which possible to distract them from their studies.
I’m a passionate and driven person. I thrive on challenges and constantly setting goals for myself, so I have something to strive towards. In this case, I always strive to “give” more to the others in need, to help others in need!
Join me in showing lights to more of the people who need our help!
