Huge thanks to @budimas_official and @proctergamble's dedicated teams who made Budimas' development and launch of our 7th library possible! 👏😁 By building libraries in rural and impoverished villages throughout Malaysia, Budimas helps provide education to thousands of underprivileged children in Orang Asli communities.
After the kids and I read stories to each other, fashioned crafts out of palm tree leaves (daun nipah), and brightened up the library walls with our colourful handprints it was easy to see how creative and motivated they were about learning and also practicing their English.
I’m excited about the opportunities for growth that this library brings for the kids; they now have a safe and vibrant space to learn, play games, get homework help, create arts and crafts, and delve into story-telling and tutoring sessions thanks to our volunteers and librarians 😃
I know that Budimas’ libraries will further strengthen communities and nurture a love of reading and sense of curiosity in children throughout the country. And I truly believe that providing education to those less fortunate will help lift them out of poverty so that they may live more secure, successful and happy lives 😊
