1. Nurturing ‘[L]ove [I]n [O]ur [N]eighbourhood’ with Sekolah Kebangsaan Kangka Tebrau, Johor Bahru.
United Nations introduced The Sustainable Development Goals with 17 goals designed as a blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. In line with the goals, we chose to adopt Sekolah Kebangsaan Kangka Tebrau (SKKT) in Johor Bahru in order to support them in all aspects. SKKT was selected because we want to nurture the spirit ‘[L]ove [I]n [O]ur [N]eighbourhood’ with the community near us. SKKT is the oldest school in the vicinity of the Southern Lion Sdn. Bhd. and most of the students are from middle to lower income background. We plan to support them by providing awareness programs on personal hygiene via the Lion Dental Health Program and Hand Washing Activities as well as other educational programs in collaboration with the school and teachers. This school adoption program will carried out for 2 years starting from 2020 until 2021. We have planned many activities together with the teachers to spark the students’ interest in education and extracurricular activities. Among planned activities are educational visit to Kidzania Kuala Lumpur, sports day, friendly match and festive celebration and much more. We also plan to upgrade some facilities to provide a better learning environment for the students.
