The world is divided into haves and have-nots – and that division begins early.
Millions of children around the world fall short of basic human rights – food, clothing and shelter – and often education that facilitates the pursuit of a better life to escape the cycle of poverty.
It is hard to imagine legions of underprivileged young for whom fast food is a rare luxury, have never washed with shampoo or owned a toothbrush.
They are not just in desperate Third World countries. They are right here, in our midst – in Malaysia’s prosperous cities and deep rural reaches. They are of different family background and races, reflecting our nation’s multi-cultural composition.
Children’s Day Charity Bazaar @ Jaya One
Children’s Day – an occasion to cherish our junior citizens – is an opportunity to reach out to these needy ones at the Children’s Day Charity Bazaar on 8 November at The School in Jaya One, organized by Living Hope.
Living Hope is a non-profit organization that aims to reach out to poor, needy and marginalized children in Malaysia and internationally. Living Hope’s outreach programme is for children below 12. Under the supervision of an older mentor, they observe and learn simple business skills during the buying and selling at the stalls. It is also a boost for their self-esteem and life skills.
Held from 11am until 5pm, various college-age volunteers and younger kids will be manning more than 60 booths ranging from food, creative and imaginative products as well as participating in exciting performances and activities to show off the entrepreneurial spirit of young Malaysians.
The coupons are available for sale at RM50 per booklet with everything is only priced from RM5 at the bazaar. Proceeds will go towards Living Hope’s myriad of activities such as hot meals and educational materials to help children from families with income under RM700.
Let’s support Malaysian small businesses and do our bit for charity by attending this Children’s Day Charity Bazaar!
Coupon booklets are available for purchase at The School’s information counter on the Ground Floor or the Living Hope office at Damansara Utama (03-7727 5887) from now until 8 November.
