UN Malaysia Awards 2018
MyKasih Foundation received the United Nations Malaysia Award 2018 this morning for significant contributions to Agenda 2030 and the Sustainable Development Goals. The awards ceremony was held at JWMarriot Kuala Lumpur today, 24 October, in conjunction with the 73rd Anniversary of the United Nations (‘UN Day’). For exemplary leadership in promoting the ‘Leaving No One Behind’ principle and reaching those furthest behind by effectively utilising an innovative technology-driven welfare distribution method to reach large numbers of Malaysians in the B40 category, the United Nations in Malaysia presented the UN Malaysia Award for this category to MyKasih Foundation. Established in 2009, MyKasih is a non-profit organisation that mobilises donor finance from public and corporate bodies towards communities who are most in need. To-date, MyKasih has assisted in the delivery of RM240 million worth of aid to more than 260,000 low-income families and students in over 400 locations nationwide, including in Sabah and Sarawak. MyKasih’s welfare distribution system has been successfully adopted by government ministries such as the Ministry of Housing and Local Government, and state governments such as Sarawak and Johor states to provide directed and targeted aid distribution. MyKasih has also played a crucial role in facilitating partnerships towards Leaving No One Behind. It teams up with companies, NGOs, social-purpose organisations and the public sector to provide health screening, entrepreneurship training and educational assistance to low income families and school-going children. Through its aid delivery and financial literacy programs, MyKasih’s work has been instrumental in assisting low-income families in Malaysia to break the cycle of poverty. For these reasons, the United Nations Malaysia Award 2018 for contributions to ‘Leaving No One Behind’ around the 2030 Agenda and SDGs is presented to MyKasih Foundation, represented by its Co-Founders, Tan Sri Dr Ngau Boon Keat and Puan Sri Jean Ngau.

PDK Cenwaey Penaney holds first Sports Day for Semai OA Students
PDK Cenwaey Penaney, a community learning centre built in the Semai indigenous villages of Ulu Tual, northwest of Pahang, organised its inaugural Sports Day event over a sunny weekend in July 2016. Located about 23km from the nearest paved road, this rural learning centre caters to about 100 school-going children, and was the first educational establishment to benefit from the MyKasih Orang Asli Children's Education Fund. Children and youth dressed in their Sports House colours of red, blue, green and yellow, were blazing through marked-out trails during the cross-country competition. They participated in other fun traditional games and telematches together with their parents and siblings. Pre-schoolers participated in age-appropriate games such as arranging cans in order of numbers, carrying sand using a banana leaf to fill up a bottle, and peeling as many young beetle nuts as they could within a time limit. The bigger children were involved in pole-climbing (a team activity), 100m running events (individual and in pairs), long jump, and bowling using coconuts. Family telematches include Tarik Upih (parents pulling coconut fronds with their child seated on it) and building a bicycle using tapioca plants. For MyKasih Foundation, it was a truly memorable weekend to witness healthy and happy children. Donors John and Edwina Thornton, who supported the centre’s operations this 2016, visited PDK Cenwaey Penaney on 2 July 2016 and met with the students and community elders. They presented prizes to the winners of the cross-country event and held a book-reading and sing-along session with the children. A doctor and medical officers from the Kuala Lipis District Ministry of Health’s community clinic and dental clinic were also present to carry out basic health and dental screening, and dispense medicines to those who needed.
