TEACHERS REWARDED FOR TIRELESS EFFORT

The dedicated Fellows (teachers) of Teach For Malaysia received a warm visit by Kenny Rogers ROASTERS (KRR) in conjunction with KRR’s “22 Deliciously Healthy Years” anniversary initiative to reward volunteers of non-governmental organisations (NGOs) nationwide.


Understanding the tireless work that these Fellows go through to educate the future generation, KRR contributed a total of 50 sets of Kenny’s Quarter Lite Meal to the Fellows at their Dragons’ Den event recently. The Dragons’ Den event is a community meeting where Fellows pitch for ideas and solutions to address issues that they identify in the schools that they teach.

Chan Soon Seng, Head of the South Region of Teach For Malaysia remarked, "At Teach For Malaysia, we believe that all students should be #EmpoweredTo realise their potential, regardless of their background. Our Fellows teach in high-need schools across Malaysia, to be part of the solution to the challenges faced by our students today. We're excited to have public and private sector partners and supporters like Kenny Rogers ROASTERS working with us toward a common goal; to invest in our collective future, and create real and lasting transformation in our schools and communities."
Apart from Teach For Malaysia, other charitable organisations that KRR have contributed meals to include EPIC, Malaysian Nature Society and Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA), MERCY Malaysia, Give.my and Hospis with more organisations scheduled.
The “22 Deliciously Healthy Years” anniversary initiative garnered more than 11,300 likes on KRR’s Facebook page. KRR pledged to contribute a meal for each 22 ‘likes’ received which saw a fruitful outcome of over 500 meals.
