webe community Unlocks A Hat Trick!

Thanks to webe community, the Container Classroom, Malaysian Virtual Field Trips and Dengue Prevention App projects have been successfully unlocked and are now in the execution stage. Combined, the projects will be granted a total of RM500,000 and is targeted to be completed between end of this year and next year.

#ContainerClassroom for a better learning environment

Taking place at a school located in a small town near Taiping, Perak, caretakers of the special need students are overwhelmed for the students who will be receiving a learning environment that is convenient for them. The container will be reformed and fitted with a wheelchair ramp, air conditioning, equipped with a projector, 20 special needs friendly laptops, a stable Internet connection and suitable electrical outlets.

 

The Project Champions; Karthik, Amelia and Andrew who are also the founders of ‘100% Project’, a social enterprise that empowers Malaysian teachers to do more for their students, were inspired by Cikgu Tan, a local teacher. He aspires to provide a better learning environment for his special-needs students that suffer from disabilities such as Cerebral Palsy.

 

“Cikgu Tan strongly believes that his students can be contributing members of the society, so he taught them various activities and programmes pertaining to self-sustaining life skills. However, that alone is not enough in today’s world. We think that technology plays a crucial role in students’ development as it makes the lesson more interactive,” said Amelia.

 

#myvirtualvids – allowing children to explore the world even if they can’t afford it.

 

Virtual reality is clearly the wave of the future. It allows us to immerse in a 360 degree experience to places we might not otherwise be able to. Currently maturing, it is becoming more affordable and accessible as this technology has tremendous potential for all sorts of applications and fields.

 

Imagine standing in front of the Taj Mahal or Niagara Falls. Maybe taking a trip on a helicopter or hanging out with Orang Utans – the opportunities are limitless! This is what Project Champions and founders of Give.my; Kal Joffres, Fiza Azmi and Tiu Kian Wee will be bringing to the community.

 

Through the creation of 360 videos based on Malaysia’s popular sights, professions, festivals and many other things, Kal and team hope to reach out to more people and create awareness for underprivileged children to experience and discover new things.

 

“We will be running at least ten workshops and hope to make an impact on between 3,000 to 4,000 kids. We would like to show them a future that they’ve never imagined for themselves. Aside from being educational, some of the videos will feature a range of topics like culture, a day in the life or a uniformed serviceman, nature and many more. We want to get them excited about the future, looking out into the world and building their own hopes and dreams.
