After a difficult 2020, our Didik-Kasih EduCare Program recipients are back with bigger and better events for the year as they continue to give back to the community whilst receiving aid for their studies.
Right before MCO2.0, our Didik-Kasih student recipient Phaizal was able to conduct his charity activity with 20 teenagers from Yayasan Chow Kit, a crisis and drop-in centre for at-risk teenagers.
Called ‘Ayuh! Print T-Shirt’, the event was held in the first week of January at KL Krash Pad to allow the teens to express their creativity by designing their own t-shirt.
Phaizal used the silk screen technique, where teens were given white t-shirts and could select their stencils before printing them on with colours of their choice.
With four silk screens and twenty teenagers, Phaizal worked with his team of volunteers to ensure that each teenager got to personally customise, print and dry out their t-shirts, which they took home happily.
With all the excitement, even the volunteers got into the action & made their own t-shirts as well before ending the day on a high note.
Despite the social distancing measures, it was a fun and fruitful day for all, especially Phaizal who was able to give back to the community. Via the Didik-Kasih EduCare Program financial aid, Phaizal is able to help others while being aided with one-off and monthly subsidies for his tertiary education.
