Our 8th Budimas Children's Library is now operating!

24 Sep 2018

Bukit Bangkong 17th July, we had a soft launch of our library in Kg Orang Asli, Bukit Bangkong and made it a true celebration! 


We invited the villagers and children to visit their new learning space and join in the fun. Tok Batin (the village leader), Chairman of the local Village Development and Security Committee (JKK), and officers from the Department of Orang Asli Development were also in attendance.

To celebrate the opening of the library, nine children from the village put on a traditional dance performance in the community hall next door. We also treated everyone to a modest feast afterward because no celebration can be called Malaysian without delicious food and drinks.

Our 8th Library located at Kampong Orang Asli Bukit Bangkong.

 

The event launching day, which hosted for more than 40 orang asli children and over 20 adults/parents/guardian sit down and waiting for the ceremony to begin.

Food and drinks are also served by Budimas's staff.

It is our hope that the library provides the children of this Orang Asli community a conducive environment to learn and explore. If it encourages the children to take education more seriously and help them build a better future, we would have succeeded in our mission.

During the launch, we spotted children taking the initiative to browse through the shelves and pick out books that caught their eye. They were also attentive when our librarian briefed them on how they can use the library to do their homework and revision. This gives us hope that they will put the library to good use.

This is, of course, impossible without you! Thank you for illuminating the paths of the children of Kg Orang Asli, Bukit Bangkong.
