FROM: Inasis Bank Muamalat
SUBJECT: Requesting for rural tuition project funding
As a Project Manager from Inasis Bank Muamlalat UUM. I have been working on a project entitled Applications for Edu Treatment. I would like to request funding to run the program of Edu Treatment for students from rural areas.
In the five short years since its founding, the SOLS 24/7 Malaysia has played a major role in the transformation of education from a rural area with unproductive, unsupervised kids with kids that easily can get into trouble to one providing these youth with a valuable program. The Edu Treatment program uses the Life Skills Curriculum to empower young people by providing facilities and schools with a life skills program that promotes positive values, healthy habits, and education through the program resulting in real life situation.
A priority needs for the Edu Treatment program, which operates during school holidays, is funding for curriculum supplies and part-time program staff. In the past, we have relied on volunteer or minimally paid staff. For the result, it continued difficulty attract qualified and limited continuity for the participants whose success depends on positive role models and the relationships they build with their instructors.
Teaching high-risk, inner-city youth the skills to become successful in life is at the core of the Edu Treatment program. The four major components of the program are:
1. Homework assistance through one-to-one session and use of computer
2. Food nutrition education to promote healthy lifestyles
3. Life skills which are integrated throughout all sessions of the program
The holiday school program – serves 150 children in each session. It includes homework assistance two hours/week and computer instruction, health and life skills education three hours/day.
Participants receive computer instruction in one-on-one and clinic settings. They learn about setting of the computer and basic knowledge of using Microsoft office for their future. Food nutrition and healthy lifestyles are stressed both in the classroom and outdoors. Healthy snacks are provided.
The Edu Treatment program is fortunate to have a corps of volunteers who are dedicated to the program and are available to work with the children on improving their academic skills. Students from Inasis Bank Muamalat have taken an active role in the homework area, working individually with the students using current homework assignments. In the computer learning sessions they help the students improve their keyboard skills and show them how to use for research and know about search engine. They read with the students and give quizzes and videos to improve comprehension. Incentives are awarded to the participants based on attendance, good behavior and general attitude.
The Edu Treatment project is requesting RM 10 000 from the SOLS 24/7 Malaysia to support this program that makes a meaningful difference in the lives of our youth. A contribution from SOLS 24/7 Malaysia will give us the jumpstart we need while we continue to implement our recently developed fund-raising plan.
We believe that the Edu Treatment program is consistent with the mission and interest of helping out rural area students, and hope that you will find it in your hearts and budget to support this program. If I can provide additional information to encourage consideration of our request, please feel free to contact me at [email protected] . I would also be happy to personally meet with your committee to present this proposal.
Thank you for considering this request. Please let me know if you need any additional information that may influence your decision to approve funding.
